We had gone to this restaurant yesterday and we had some yummy thai food, not to forget their awesome lemon grass tea - which made me yearn for more. We shall definitely visit this place again and try out more of their dishes. Yes, the food is a tad expensive but it is worth it. I liked almost all of the dishes that we had ordered. The coconut drink (I believe it is called the summer cooler) was wonderful.
We have been to Benjarong about 5-6 times in last one year. We are surprised how the chefs are able to dish out consistently brilliant food all the time. This is the place that has introduced us to, and made us fall in love with, all foods that are Thai. Be it galangal, bird's eye chilli, thai basil, pea aubergine.. and the list goes on. We are vegetarians and have never felt a lack of choice. Our favorite foods here are the Tom Yum soup, tod prik tai, red & green curries and a main-course dish comprising of aubergine and potatoes. So far nothing has disappointed us. The service is also top-class; with no request being too much for the staff. Add to these, the authentic Thai decor and music with sofly lit house-like ambience. This is truly one of the places to go when you want your dinner to be just perfect.
Benjarong, to me, is the best place in the city for authentic Thai cuisine. Everything about the place is awesome right from the "paan" which is served right in the beginning right down to the mouth watering desserts, and the unlimited jasmine tea. The corn patties here are to die for, the main course with the thai green curry, the veg version of phad thai, to the noodles and basil/lemongrass flavoured rice and thai herbs and spices is just amazing. The service is good too. This place absolutely rocks!
THE finest Thai restaurant in the town, by far, on any count....quaint little joint in cozy little corner on the posh Alwarpet area; inviting interiors, warm ambiance, genuinely interested serving staff, professional service and lo...the delectable fare that lingers longer than anticipated .... Just superb....would like to visit once again...
