First and foremost, this place has awesome food. But it is the service that sets it apart from just about every other restaurant in Thailand. There will always be a few waiters and waitresses attending to your table, keeping their distance but always there to answer questions. And, please, ask some questions about the menu. The smiles on their faces as they answer tell of their pride and of how deeply they seem to want you to enjoy your meal.
This is one of those restaurants where everything on the menu sounds so damn good that it is impossible to narrow down your choices. And it is also one of those restaurants that is just so damn good you can't help but eat everything up. No matter how much you order.
It is classic Royal Thai cuisine, which is probably familiar to anyone who travels to Bangkok. So I won't go into each dish with specifics. But I do want to say how perfectly everything is prepared. The fried foods are not greasy. The fish arrives perfectly tender. All the dishes are exquisitely seasoned. What balance! And the staff is always more than happy to prepare dishes that are not on the menu.
We have been traveling to Bangkok for our winter holidays for a number of years now, and Benjarong has been a favorite for as long as we can remember.
