The enthusiasm of the service was good. The food was fairly bland. Our appetizers and dinner were brought to the table within a few minutes of each other making for a very crowded table that seats two. My husbands main entree was incorrect but it was taken back and sorted out fairly quickly. Overall nice staff, but lacking in attention... More

I always get veggie pad Thai and chicken tom yum soup. Just the right amount of spice and great tasting. Fairly reasonable for portion size too.

It might not be the most authentic but it is by far my favourite Pad Thai in the city. The York St location is better but I live closer to this one. I miss the days when the portions were much larger and cheaper but it is still a great meal. Service is passable but it could be a bit... More

Thank you so much for making our mother's 98th birthday so wonderful. The food is superb, and the staff could not have been nicer or more hospitable. We had a large group of around thirty people and everything was wonderful. Thank you Rob, and thanks too to Ping and the staff. We have always loved it at Ben Thanh and... More

First visit for lunch and was impressed. The surroundings were most pleasant and the service excellent. In fact all the staff were most welcoming. We were greeted with a pot of tea which to me should be a must for any Asian restaurant. I had the Tom tom soup and green curry chicken both very good. My friend had the... More

Probably the best Thai food in London. We've tried most of the recommended ones and this us without a doubt the best in terms of quality of food. Service is pretty good too, but we have been turned back on a couple of occasions because they close at 9:30 even though they advertise as 10:00. For a business establishment that... More

Our service was amazing.,, quick and helpful and knowledgable.. The menu is extensive,,, so it takes awhile to figure out what to order and if you're not familiar with the cuisine... More

I've been to the York street location a few times and this was my first visit to this location. The decor is beautiful and you feel like you've left London. Much more appealing than their other location. The spring rolls are the best I've ever had...freshly made...just delicious. I don't think anybody does them as well. The noodle dishes are... More
