The restaurant is clean and efficient. The selection is quite large and you may have trouble deciding what to order, so take your time and ask for advice, or see what others are eating. We didn't and wound up picking 2 of the vegetarian dishes which was just one flavour. After 4 bites, I lost interest. I'd go back but... More

My son and I had lunch in this packed up restaurant. Lunch time almost every table was taken. We ordered chicken 🍗 soup which was really exquisite. And Vermicelli with shrimps. Also very good. It felt better than eating in the market a whole meal.

Whenever my colleagues and I want a quick, nutritious meal, we go to Pho Ben. Service is quick and friendly, the food is good, and there are lots of nutritious choices. Today we both chose Pad Sieiw Beef, a delicious noodle dish. We ordered extra Chinese vegetables to round out the order. The generous serving ensured we had leftovers to... More

This is a regular hit for myself and family. Whenever we travel anywhere in Ontario, we check to see if there's a Pho Ben Thanh restaurant nearby. It's a place with a huge variety of amazing dishes that everyone in the family loves. Their seafood pad thai is the only kind of pad thai I will eat. I don't even... More

This is my favourite Thai food restaurant. Anytime I visit Waterloo this is always top of my list for selections. The flavours are perfect, every time I go I get a new dish and every time I am blown away by the amazing food. The wait staff are always friendly and helpful. Highly recommended.

We ordered this place every time we go, and it is so yummy! And the Capuchino is very good too. If you like noodles, try pahthai.

My Husband & I were very pleased with our dining experience at this restaurant. We dined on a busy Saturday night. They had a short line up but waited only 5 or 10 minutes before we were seated. We ordered shrimp rolls, soup & Cantonese Stir Fry & were impressed with all. Service was great. A bottle of decent wine... More

Being a food lover with weakness for oriental types I have frequented Pho Ben Thanh several times. Each visit was remarkable and enjoyable. The menu is vast and covers most Thai and Vietnamese dishes that I know of.....you won't get bored...can assure you that. Interestingly the quality and taste has always been consistent over the few years I have experienced.The... More

Was brought here by workmates. I was not sure what to expect. Don't ask me what I ordered. All I know is the food was delicious. The people were various nice also. It was obviously a family run business and the whole family was there pitching in. I recommend you give it a try. Please bring cash, they do not... More
