My nephew and I enjoyed lunch at Benja's. Their menu is extensive so you're sure to find something for your taste. You're also given the option of a spice level. Medium gave me just enough heat. The lunch specials come with a choice of soup...and side of spring rolls. The coconut soup (Tom Kha) is delicious! My nephew ordered the Penang curry and my dish was a cashew nut stir fry. We both chose chicken for the meat. Both dishes were great! They offer a nice variety of appetizers, desserts and also have a kids selection. Our waitress was friendly and we enjoyed the overhead music. The location is in a small strip mall in Tillmans Corner and it's very convenient for travelers off interstate 10.More

We were happy with our orders of red curry with chicken (mildly “hot”) and crispy catfish with ginger sauce; coconut bubble tea (too much sugar though), and an okay mango sticky rice dessert (we’ve had better.) Pleasant Thai pop music accompanied our meal.

Ordered chicken Pad Thai, summer rolls and Tom Yum soup. LOVE! Tasty, quick and reasonably priced. My order was to go. It was hot and packaged nicely.

We went there with some friends and we ordered 6 different mains. All of them where very good and fresh. The service was great, and the price very economical. It was a great evening dining out. Thanks

Pad Woonsen today. I am gonna have to try all this stuff--it is so good, to me! I always get their coconut milk soup, too, & my friend got it today and he thought it better than the regular. The place is attractive and well...kept. Clean. Service is quick and well timed (u get your main course about the time you finish the soup and spring rolls).More

My wife and I ate here today as it was near our hotel. The place is a bit dated but very clean inside and serves very good food. We started off with 2 summer rolls with shrimp and peanut sauce which were very tasty. I...had the goong ob woonsen for the main course which had a good number of shrimp in it and was spiced perfectly. My wife had the basil chicken w/o jalapenos as she doesn't like hot spices. She said it was very good. You can order your food from mild (1) to very spicy (5). They also have a varied menu with sushi. A very good restaurant that we would go back to eat at.More

Hopes, the tables were sticky, the chicken satay went from the freezer straight to the fryer and wasn’t even fully cooked, the rice of the shushi was to gummy, the fish was ok. Will not go back.

I'm just going to be honest. Tillman's corner is packed with fast food places, all employed with people who clearly hate their jobs because they're all rude and normally mess your order up. Benja's is a nice family restaurant where the staff are very friendly...and smile and really take care of you. They have a pretty decent menu with a lot to choose from from a few different cultures of food. Best pad thai I've had in a long time and my husband loves their sushi. And it's pretty affordable so choosing this place over fast food in the area is definitely a good idea.More

This is a "first choice" if you are a Thai food or Sushi aficionado. This unassuming little place is not fancy but don't judge this book by its cover. We sre talking fresh fresh fresh fare with fair prices, good portions, clean, with friendly service....I had the Crispy Chicken and my wife had two different Sushi rolls. Awesome! This was our second stop in Mobile in 2 years and our 2nd time at Benjas. Wish they would transplant the place to our home town! A word of warning, this is real Thai fare, so it is spicy. On a scale of 1-5, I would suggest not ordering any hotter than a "3". Bon appétit! We'd give it a 5 star review but the wine and beer selection was lacking. On the plus side you can bring your own. Corkage fee is normal a $7.More

it looked like a new hole in the wall restaurant, but the atmosphere of the place was very nice with good thai music and pictures. the service was excellent and very friendly. and the prices were very reasonable. I had red curry that was very...good you could order the food in the range of 1 to 5 with one not hot and 5 the hottest. i got mine with a 3 rating and it wasnt too bad wanting some heat it was just right. my friend got a pork stir fry and it had a great taste and flavor to it. if you like thai food, certainly give this place a shot.More

This is a little hidden treasure. Delicious fresh Thai food. I have had the Shrimp Tempura rolls and the Chicken Curry. Both were delicious. The service was great and the wait staff gracious. I have been back 3 times in a month. Price averages about...$10.00 and I can make 2 meals out of the one. Plenty of chicken in the curry dish too. Large selection of rolls. Quiet atmosphere, casual attire.More

My mom took us to this little restaurant and we were pleasantly surprised. If you don't look for it you will miss it. It's located within a small strip of shops. The food there is fantastic! We ordered several plates to be shared and didn't...find one that we didn't enjoy! The prices are really good as is the customer service. I highly recommend that you check them out.More

A work colleague recently told us about this place, so we checked it out. Be warned, the outside of the building does not look as good as the food inside! It's nestled in among a bar, a gym, and very close to a Big Lots...and Goodwill store. But the food is worth the trip. We started with the lettuce wraps. On par with PF Chang's famous wraps, and they give you more than the chain. We went with solid standards like pork fried rice and chicken pad thai, which were both very tasty and fresh. And one thing I've never had from an Asian restaurant: the leftovers were just as good the next day! We WILL be back!More

The reviews of this place are much better than it deserves. We eat a lot of Thai food and sushi wherever we go, and this was the worst Thai food and sushi we've ever had. We ordered their summer rolls in chicken, which were freshly...made and they were decent, except that the chicken was so salty, my fingers were swelling while we ate. We also had the chicken satay, which was just okay. We had some sushi as well, and the flavors were just odd and weren't tasty combinations. The rice in the sushi was gummy and the waitress was slow and disorganized. I would not recommend this place - go across the street and eat BBQ! We sure will next time!More
