This is a great little restaurant. I love the spring rolls, pho, vermicilli and crepe. Do not pass up the fried green beans! They are wonderful. Lunch specials are very popular.

Great food every time we come here. Small place and always busy. It's tucked away in a strip mall. The value is exceptional.

Have eaten at Benleys a dozen times
Always on point with food & service. Some of the best Pho I've had and their green beans are the stuff of dreams. I also love the friendly staff.

You will not find better Pho. The broth is aromatic and flavorful. I usually have mine with the rare sliced beef. This is not just a pho restaurant. There is a full menu and I have eaten about everything on it. You must have the green beans. They are amazing. There is a great cabbage and chicken salad. All the rolls are good but I think the shrimp and lemongrass pork rolls are the best. The chicken curry is delicious as is the shaken beef. There is another beef dish with a similar description but the secret off-menu order is to have them combined. Enough about the food. This restaurant is located at the very, very back of a strip mall with a T.J. Maxx. It's hard to find the first time. It holds maybe 40 people max. Very simple décor. Friendly service even though it can be a little slow. Some of the wait staff have terrific memories and greet you like a long lost friend every time you come in. This is not a place to be in a hurry. The pace is very relaxing. The only minus is the wine list. It isn't very extensive and it's overpriced. Stick with the amazing jasmine tea (iced or hot) that comes from Vietnam.

The Ban Mi sandwich and Pho soup lunch special for $8.95 is excellent. It is enough for my wife and daughter to split for lunch. Soft drinks are available in cans. Good service.
