“Authentic and tasty”
Reviewed 16 December 2013

After living in Thailand for a year, I really miss good authentic Thai food, but this restaurant really lived up to my expectations. The staff were all very friendly and the service was fast and efficient. They told my table that if we had any special requests for the food, just to mention it and the kitchen would make it exactly as we liked. They even came back to check that the spiciness we had all ordered was correct for our taste buds, which was nice. No complaints to be made - I would definitely recommend.

“Not meeting expectations”
Reviewed 15 November 2013

The decor is pleasing and relaxing, the menu had a variety of food accompnied by a reasonable wine list which is not expensive.

The mixed platter had some interesting flavours, however the quality of the chicken on the skewers was terrible. They were mostly grisle, would have expected white chicken meat. This was also the same in main dish with the chicken skewer with sweet and sour sauce. Again, probably the lowest quality chicken I have had any where in the UAE. When we asked for additional items so we had at least 3 of each and we said we would pay for them but the waitress was confused. My friends had mains of lamb and green curry which they said was good but the rice portions were too small for the amount of lamb and curry they had.

Bill arrived promptly, yet it comes with a broken cracked pen to write with, not a huge problem but a attention to quality point which then leads to issues with the bar.

The fresh fruit moctail is actually juice from cartons, dirty ash trays on the bar, and bar tender could not see the problem why he handles the top of the drinks straw before he put it into the drinks. Again a small point on the straw but noticeable when cafe's take care to make sure straws stay hygienic.

I was going to go again tonight with other friends but after last nights expericence I nor my friend will be re visiting.

“Great Food, Excellent Service”
Reviewed 10 November 2013

I had a business lunch with some customers in the Benjarong, I called up and asked them to take care of my customers as I will be late. They did a great job and when I was there the service was outstanding and the atmosphere is just great for an impressive lunch with a customer. On the food side, I highly recommend the Tom Yum soup and Papaya salad, a green curry dish would be a great treat for the eyes, taste and smell. The staff there are well trained and super friendly as well as professional. I certainly enjoyed every bit of it, and I will come back again and again. In fact, I am a Dubayyan and I am not very fan of going to Abu Dhabi specially for meals, but if you're stuck and you have to make a business lunch somewhere then that's the place to choose cause from service, to quality of food, to environment and atmosphere to friendliness to professional needs all are great in this restaurant. God bless you all there and thanks for the great experience.
