I ate at Thanh Binh on the 21st December with 4 friends. We pre-booked thinking it would be a busy saturday night but on arrival we were the only ones in the eatery….never a great sign in my experience. Its a bring your own booze place which I like as it keeps costs down and you drink exactly what you want.
Service was prompt if lacking any real pleasantries and despite literally being the only ones in the restaurant, our admittedly boistrous (but not offensive, rude, noisy - I mean giggles and laughter) seemed to be too much for the lady behind the bar who proceeded to shhh us!
All of the staff seemed to be less than excited that we were there (perhaps they don't like all male groups?) and were very business like. Hardly acting as warm hosts.
The food was limited menu wise but we all agreed it was excellent and very flavourful…perhaps the chefs should serve it themselves as based on the effort that clearly went into the food, they would have been a welcome change from the waiting team!
All in all, good food, naff atmosphere and bordering on frosty demeanor from staff. I won't rush back - a shame as based on the food, it could be a gem. That said, if eating in libraries (silence) is your thing, this could be the perfect place. Seeking atmosphere and service as well as good food, go elsewhere.
