Chicken pad thai, very bland and goopy with sauce. IT used to be good but this was bad. Sent it back for more spice and it came back the same. Could not eat it but they would only give a 10% discount. Don't go here for pad thai.

I went here with 2 colleagues for a lunch meeting. I usually go to the Waterloo location (on Northfield), but this one was more central for everybody. Also, this one has less students and tends to be less noisy. I ordered the Thai Green Chicken Curry with Rice ($10). It was delicious and good portion for lunch! One colleague ordered... More

The food experience is great but is shadowed by the extremely poor service, which pears to be a characteristics of Asian food restaurants. Three days in the row they run out at lunch time of basil and sprout?!?!?! From my point of view this is in acceptable few days in a row. Other time they were out of a typical... More

Good value for money here, menu has lots of items to choose from. The service is hit and miss, when it's bad, it's very bad. It could also use a good cleaning between seatings. The selling feature here is the food, I wish the service and cleanliness was equally as good.

"Well, everyone's taste buds are different." This was one of the caustic replies we received from Anna, the less than delightful manager after sending back the atrocious mango salad we ordered. We weren't expecting the greatest food, but we weren't expecting rude, defensive and argumentative customer service! I don't think I will go into much detail about the food, as... More

Ordered a broccoli and beef with sticky rice for take-out. When I was on my lunch and started eating my meal from Ben Tanh, I realized the rice was a little too 'sticky' and started to look more closely at it when I noticed thick, black hairs in amongst the rice. I realized in a moment that they were pubic... More

Only go to this restaurant if you have an empty belly and a big appetite. Portions are large and you will easily have enough for lunch the next day, despite stuffing yourself! Staff are wonderful and friendly, food is fresh and well-made, and service is quick! Everytime we go - we try a new dish....and have yet to be disappointed!... More

Love this place. Can be a bit noisy so be prepared for that. Food has always come fairly quickly and good size portions and hot. Servers are quite attentive and seem to want to serve you. Lots to try on the menu. Always good eats when we visit this place.
