The food is standard, but the price is expensive, the worse part is the service! We are asian, several time we asked for some service it took long time to get it, we asked if they have the hot chilli paste they said they dont have, but i saw the other table which the customer were white people they have...

Food was ok, not the best Thai/Vietnamese food in Guelph. Love their iced matcha with glass jelly. The server was friendly.

Witness forgot our order --- took 2 hours to get a simple curry + soup. When asked why the order took so long the waitress was apathetic saying that there was an issue in the kitchen and when further probed she said she forgot. Very disappointing! She marked down our meal by 15% percent....which was not worth it. We should... More

This is my first visit to this Ben Thanh location I've been to the Cambridge restaurant a couple of times the food here is just as good as it is in Cambridge. It is very busy here today I think I got the last table in the place. I ordered some classic entrées, shrimp and beef and avocado rolls. I... More

Took a friend for dinner. We both had soup as an app and it was delicious. Waitress was nice and friendly. Eaten here often and should have remembered to order apps then order mains as the food pretty much comes out all at the same time. Always good portions at fair prices. Beef is always a little chewy but plenty... More

My boyfriend and I went here last night for a dinner date and overall we really liked the place. I loved the interior, modern and trendy. Although it was very open it felt pretty intimate and I liked that, especially for date night! I think our server could have been more attentive because it took her some time after dropping... More

I thought the food and service was fine but not outstanding. I ordered a red curry dish over rice and it was quite tasty. The restaurant would be rated higher if the servers were more friendly. We didn't have an issue with getting our food fairly quickly.

Slow service, no greeting for tea or beverages. They let you sit for too long then want to take your order and just don't really seem to care too much. Have been a couple of times and this is consistent. Take out or delivery has very long wait. Food is so-so, dim sum is frozen, slow to arrive and just... More

I would never order again from the location of Guelph. I ordered take out. Was told about an Hour and a half. Almost 2 hours later... what I usually get at the location in Waterloo was nothing like the Guelph location. Before I paid for my take out I notice there was an item missing. Then I had notice the...

I wanted to give this restaurant one more chance. Their sister restaurant in Cambridge is excellent. There were only two tables of customers, despite the fact it was the lunch hour. My server finally saw me, and asked if I was ready to order, and I said no, I'd like tea first. Usually they give you a pot of tea,... More
