Description: As the world has become more globalized, we are more familiar with different countries including their culture and cuisine. In the old days, people believed that you could only get the taste of the food at its origin. However, things change. With better transportation we are able to get fresh ingredients from anywhere in the world. In this past years, Thai food has become increasingly popular and well-known for its tastefulness, savoury, and sometimes spiciness. Thai food is very delicate cuisine which also requires various condiments for just one dish. It is still possible to make it yourself. Though if there is a place where you can get Phad Thai with tamarind sauce base just like the one in Thailand. If there is a place where you can get the green curry with real Thai eggplants in the curry. If there is a place where you can get papaya salad with freshly imported Thai green papaya which is crispier and tastier than other kind of green papaya. If there is a place where you can get other traditional Thai dish that might not be as famous as the dish mentioned above but it is what Thai people have been eaten for generations. What if there is a place like that in Kitsilano, Vancouver? Would you give it a try? Benjarong Thai cuisine, we offer Thai food that will be as good as the best one you can get in Thailand. We know how hard to find a good Thai restaurant that offers authentic Thai food outside of Thailand. We use the right ingredients for the right dish. Benjarong Thai cuisine is the perfect place to go if you are looking for a restaurant with good atmosphere. We understand that food is very subjective especially with the level of spiciness. At Benjarong Thai Cuisine, we can alter the spiciness based on your request and preference. Thai food does not always have to be spicy. It is all about the blending of herbs that makes Thai food unique. We are family-operated restaurant which reflects in the taste of the food and the interior design of the restaurant. We try to make our food not just authentic but also what Thai people really eat at home. We also have weekly special menu and vegetarian menu. Benjarong Thai Cuisine offer dine in, take out, pick up, catering, and private party. Please come visit us on the corner of Broadway and Arbutus in Kitsilano, Vancouver.

“3.5 stars. Great service and authentic food.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2013

Our family is always in the search for authentic thai food. We had the chance to try this restaurant recent and was pleasantly surprised by our experience. Service was warm and not rushed. Food was mostly authentic.

Pad Thai - made with tamarind instead of ketchup. YUMMY!
Masamam curry - ordered as medium spicy but more sweet than heat.
Catfish salad - good flavour but the fish was more of crisped up skin but the sauce was excellent
Chicken satay - our kids loved them.
Fish cakes - authentic. great tangy sauce
Beef basil stirfry - spot on flavours although we usually prefer more spice.

* Our only gripe with this restaurant is that neither curry or basil beef came with a rice, which had to be ordered @ $4 per small bowl bringing entrees closer to the $20 mark for dinner.
