Being a food lover with weakness for oriental types I have frequented Pho Ben Thanh several times. Each visit was remarkable and enjoyable. The menu is vast and covers most Thai and Vietnamese dishes that I know of.....you won't get bored...can assure you that. Interestingly the quality and taste has always been consistent over the few years I have experienced.The... More

Was brought here by workmates. I was not sure what to expect. Don't ask me what I ordered. All I know is the food was delicious. The people were various nice also. It was obviously a family run business and the whole family was there pitching in. I recommend you give it a try. Please bring cash, they do not... More

I like this restaurant, nothing fancy, good food, service ok, nothing special but good. The menu is huge, so I always have difficulty to choose.

The food was very good, the service excellent. The price per dish is very very reasonable with generous portions provided. (You will be taking food home.) Possibly the best spring rolls I have ever eaten. The menu has a huge variety of Thai, Vietnamese, Asian dishes. I recommend this restaurant. I wish I stayed longer in Guelph so I could... More

We have been going to Pho Ben Thanh Viet for almost 5 years now. But stopped going about a year ago because we found that the food quality had gone down. But yesterday, we went, it was not very busy - around 5:45 and it's summer so less people around I guess. Also lots of road construction in the area... More

We've visited this restaurant before and like the food. We started with Wonton soup #131, spring rolls #501, which is very tasty. My wife had the bbq pork and prawn spaghetti #307 and enjoyed the seafood ramen #486. The restaurant has a very wide variety of choices, order on a small piece of paper, service is fast and polite waitresses.... More

I've lost count of the number of times I've dined here. I always get the small 102 with extra limes (pho with lean beef). Always on the spot and good. Can't speak for the rest of the menu items but the pho is always consistently good. In summary: Never disappoints, good pho place.

I return here time and time again because the food and service is so consistently great. I've brought co-workers, friends and family to enjoy this restaurant. The menu is a little large, but the fresh shrimp spring rolls, mango salad and vermicelli bowls are my fav.

My only problem with this place is that the menu is so gigantic that I tend to forget what I like. On the plus side, you are definitely going to find anything you can think of. It's a large chain, but the food is generally quite good.

The rare beef noodle soup came with already cooked beef and the meat is dry and a bit tough. The dry vermicelli with BBQ pork, meat is also dry and over cooked. The vermicelli itself is good.
