I was so looking forward to some good Thai, however I was very disappointed. The duck curry that I tried to eat was very chewy and the crab cakes tasted like something from a packet. i.e. not made at the premises. I had to cancel the glass of white wine that I ordered as it took a long time in coming which was a surprise as the restaurant was not that busy. The only reason they went from a 1 star to a 2 star was that the chef came out and saw that something was wrong and explained why the duck meet was difficult to eat (good reason, but don't put it on the menu) and offered a free desert which was the best part of the meal.

Was very pleased with my experience here. When they say spicy they mean spicy! Food could have done with just a little more flair.

The food wasn’t as we expected. We really enjoyed it the last time, but this time it was not up to the usual mark.

The dining experience proved to be an excellent evening. The servers were very tentative and were instrumental in explaining portions served during the meal. Food was prepared well and portions were plentiful. Very impressive and we will return.

This was my 3rd visit to Benjarong, and sadly it was "third time unlucky" as the previous two visits were very enjoyable. I hope it was due to an "off night" as the staff were inattentive and slow to attend the table, the food which is normally very good was far below the usual standard. The Pad Thia I was served was just an inedible pile of overcooked brown mush, which I left uneaten, and to top my birthday celebratory meal off, an idiot decided to have a Skype video conversation at her table so the entire dining area had to listen to it. Again the staff, if they were doing their duty, should have put a stop to it - but they didn't. I'm not sure I'll be going back again.

The food and service was great. We got a private room as we were a group of 5. We did not expect that at all. Will come again
