Every several months we have come to BenThanh as it is different that your Cantonese type Chinese. I have NEVER in my life been ignored and waited 55 minutes from arrival till food on table.

Let's start by addressing one major issue here. Whoever made the decision that the person at the front counter that should be greeting your customers and welcoming them to your establishment should not be on the phone taking orders. That already sets a bad experience. Second please take a moment to clean your floors. If your front entrance and the... More

Please do not bother eating here - at least don't get the Pad Thai - it is a bright orange colour, very oily, too spicy but somehow without flavor, and the manager pretty much yelled at us when we brought it back (we'd ordered take-out) and told us it was our fault for ordering the "not good" pad thai -...

Rob, our server, made the meal wonderful. The food was explained in a way that we could make proper choices, as he knew how the dishes were cooked. The food itself was fine, nothing special but substantial amounts on our plates. We had a great time for two hours and left knowing that we will be back - and ask... More

Really enjoyed our take-out meal the other night. The highlight was the thai green curry with beef and green beans. The depth of flavour was amazing. We heartily recommend!

The sad thing is this restaurant has lots of hype on how good this this. I've tried this restaurant 4 times before making a review. All 4 times were terrible quality in food. The portions are small for the price you pay. They cheap out on the shrimp chicken for their pad tai food. Price doesn't represent quality or quantity... More

Went with a friend for dinner. Ordered Pad Thai with Shrimp and Calamari and Green Curry chicken with rice. Both dishes were terrible. When we placed our order the waitress said the pad Thai was their most popular dish, so we felt good about selecting it. With the green curry chicken, she asked us if we were sure we wanted... More

Thoroughly enjoyed dining at Ben Thanh on Wonderland. First note the restaurant is very unique and high end for a Thai restaurant, real nice decor and comfortable. Secondly our server was Rob and he was excellent, helpful and friendly. If you have the pleasure to have Rob serve you it will be clear why I say this, he really goes... More

The enthusiasm of the service was good. The food was fairly bland. Our appetizers and dinner were brought to the table within a few minutes of each other making for a very crowded table that seats two. My husbands main entree was incorrect but it was taken back and sorted out fairly quickly. Overall nice staff, but lacking in attention... More

I always get veggie pad Thai and chicken tom yum soup. Just the right amount of spice and great tasting. Fairly reasonable for portion size too.
