My husband and I come here regularly for the great food and ambiance. The place is clean, the service prompt, and the food has variety and flavour. Our favourite app is the BBQ pork fresh rolls.

Three of us had dinner here and everything was great! The service was friendly and prompt and the surroundings comfortable and elegant. The food arrived hot and beautifully presented. There were three different dishes and each was pronounced tasty and plentiful. The decor in the restaurant was upscale oriental with subdued lighting and seating separated enough to allow privacy. If... More

The middle-aged Chinese manager was a real dragon lady. She curtly greeted us upon our 915pm arrival with a terse reminder they closed at 10pm. At 945 as we were finishing our meal, they shut the lights out. We were the only remaining customers. Our server got them turned back on, but then the dragon lady came out to putter... More

Every visit here has been lovely. The owners clearly care a great deal about their business and it shows. While it is sometimes too noisy to talk/visit easily, the food is great and well presented. Tip: maybe earlier or later in the day would be less busy...?

Extensive menu in a warm, cosy atmosphere on the dining side. Fun, vibrant bar area, perfect for a quick bite. Variety of asian cuisines to suit all tastes. Staff friendly and engaged in making recommendations. Have eaten there a few times with no disappointments.

We explained to the waitress my food allergy (celiac disease) and she went out of her way to check with the chef and wrote out all my possible options. The food was great, service and ambiance. We were seated in a lovely area. They have a variety of seating available, I've been back twice now since my first visit, and... More

When the food is good, I really enjoy this place. I usually recommend Ben Thanh, but there are times when I'm disappointed. Overall, I enjoy this place and the food quality out paces everything else, but they need to learn consistency and service. It is a place with enough regular business that over writes the need for mediocre reviews. So... More

I went with a friend for dinner this past weekend and was incredibly disappointed with the quality of food and service. My friend enjoyed number 302 but I was very disappointed in my bland garlic chicken rice dish. When I tried to find a server to get some sauce to help flavour my meal I Couldn't find anyone and I...

The dish I ordered was very salty. It was difficult to swallow. The waitress told me that the dish is supposed to be salty and she did not even bother to take care of the issue. It was Hot pot pork. Since I could not eat it, I ordered Pad Thai, which was watery and not tasty. Very terrible experience.
