First time here wnd it was excellent. Each ordered something different. The shrimp rolls were very fresh, as were the mango avocado rolls. The small Pho was a hearty portion with the accompanying green onions, cilantro and sprouts. We all ordered the green papaya salad - one regular, one with mango and one with marinated beef. All small portions were... More

The food and service is great and it's our favorite goto spot.. the only bad thing I can say about it is the washrooms are a little on the dirty side... thanks for many great dining experiences

The appetizer platter was excellent including fresh rolls, spring rolls, chicken satay, and mango salad. Ginger chicken was tasty with lots of ginger and fresh broccoli.

I have been here several times and usually I found both the food and service was good. We went there for lunch last week during a business trip. The food was still good, but one of the servers, who delivered the food, was not as nice as usual. It might be a language barrier or just simply not a good... More

First time visit to Ben Thanh...and just wasn't impressed.....I love Thai food and have eaten at restaurants around the world and this was just a bit disappointing. The pad Thai had no heat and the flavor was just off....a bit sweet in fact. My colleague ordered the red curry chicken and he also had a sad face....maybe I should have... More

Some waiters are okay and nice, some are absolutely bitter and have attitude when it's not necessary to be rude. Food is good but I only order with the ones I'm familiar with, it depends on what time you eat there, if you are dining in at dinner time or holidays expect your food to be delayed..

I used to order take out from Ben Thanh at least twice a month. Now, every time I'm convinced I'll be happy with my order, I'm disappointed. I've ordered the potato curry twice and each time I only had one piece of potato in it. As for flavour, it's terrible! It just feels like someone just through one hot spice... More

They have good quality food and decent service. Generally they are under staffed and service slows down when they are more then half full. While my family enjoy this place I will say that since their expansion a few years ago they have created a large menu and spread themselves a little thin. They don't execute everything as well as...

My bf loves this place, I'm still on the fence. The prices are not bad in comparison to others and you get a lot of food. On this visit I ordered the mixed seafood pad Thai.. Should've got vegetarian, shrimp or chicken.. I got 3 pieces of shrimp and ALOT of something I couldn't even tell you what it was..... More
