I have been going to all the London Ben Thanhs for a long time. The downtown York location is the best of the three for consistency and service. The new Fanshawe location is the worst of the three for food and service. The Ben Thanh was also a favorite of Western students looking forward to reasonably priced thai meals.Not any... More

I don't generally like giving bad reviews as the food is incredible but we had the worst waitress in the history of waitresses (Lindsay).. RUDE.. unresponsive, uninterested, took forever to take our order and to bring it out to us.. it honestly felt like we were inconveniencing her when we finally got to order our food. She did a great... More

Really great traditional Thai on a budget. Lots of choices, and low prices so you can afford to try the whole menu.

Crispy calamari as an appetizer was far from appetizing. It was pale suggesting that it needed to be cooked longer and tough suggesting that it had been cooked too long. Either way I would not order it again and has put me off calamari for a while. Tom Yum soup, medium size was spicy and although I thought that it... More

Love love love! I get the beef with extra spice and I love it every single time. I usually get take out, but the few times I've dined it have been great. Food is fast, and they waitress leaves you to chat with friends as long as you like (as long as it's not too busy)

My wife and I were in town for a specialist appointment at St.Joes. We sought out Ben Thanh since we've eaten at the locations in Waterloo, Kitchener, Guelph, and Cambridge. You could say that we have some basis for comparison. With that said, we've never eaten in London so don't know the restaurant landscape well. As a result, I'll try... More

Absolutely the best and freshest spring rolls you can find anywhere! Everything is very good and freshly made but don't pass on the spring rolls!

I had not been to Ben Thanh in a while. My daughter and I were taking her boyfriend to a game at Budweiser Gardens, and asked him where he would like to go for dinner beforehand. He suggested Ben Thanh as he loves their BBQ Beef Bowl with Sugar Cane. I love their Tofu pad Thai, so I was in.... More
