Super service from front door to helping get a taxi home. Nice non alcoholic cocktails (it's a dry restaurant!), and great range of Thai dishes. Food nice but not spicy enough in some cases, well prepared though they were. The soup was very spicy though - lovely! Might suggest leaving more of a gap between starters and mains.

I usually don't prefer spicy food, so was reluctant to accompany my spice crazy friends to this restaurant. But I am thankful that my friends persisted. This place is for elegant dining, be it for the ambience, the food and/or the service staff. The best part is that it is in such an awesome location that you can walk in... More

Excellent dishes. Enjoyed the banana blossom salad. Starter combo of satay fish prawns n chicken. Helpful staff. Have eaten in the Bengaluru Benjarong few times and food is never disappointing. As close to Thai and Vietnamese dishes as it gets . Take some help in combining your orders well from the staff and you will thoroughly relish your meals. And... More

I choose this restaurant for our visit to chennai. We tried the set menu and to be frank it was under priced for the quality and servings they gave. The food was fresh and loved the water chestnuts desert. If you are visiting this place for the 1st time I suggest the set menu. There green curry in the set... More

Being vegetarians, we were a bit apprehensive but were bored of eating at the same restaurants. But eating at Benjarong was wonderful. We loved everything we ordered. The complimentary appetiser while we waited for our drinks and starter was clever, simple yet tasty. A platter with spinach leaves, peanuts, grated coconut, red chillies, ginger, lemon, peanuts and a sweet sauce.... More

Benjarong has been around for a long time and has carved itself a niche in the hearts of Chennaiites. Their menu is quite expansive with a lot of options for Vegetarians. Must try dishes include the Som Tam (Thai Pappaya Salad) Khao Pahd, bahmee pahd nam prik pow (Thai Soft noodles with Red Chillies and hot basil)

Your best choice in Chennai for Thai food. The options are plenty and very authentic. The tom yum soup is not as spicy as I have had abroad, maybe it can be made even more spicy, but decided with the standard fare. Missing their soft shell crabs which is very unique, not part of the menu any more. The curries,... More
