“Can't get any better”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2014

Finding good Thai restaurants that are authentic to Thai cuisine is hard. A lot of Thai restaurants in the emirates claim to be Thai but usually have other Asian undertones. In Abu Dhabi I usually go the Patchaylen in Eastern Mangroves Anantara which was my favourite Thai restaurant until now.. Benjarong brought the bar up a little and this will be the place I choose to go to if I want to eat Thai from now on :)
Has all the Thai favourites on the menu, ingredients are fresh and portions are enormous. Service is friendly and quick. Highly recommended!

“Very good... ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2014 via mobile

We arrived here last night without reservations but we're quickly seated. This place has a real nice feel to it and the decor makes you feel as though you could very well be in Thailand. That being said the view from the Dubai branch exceeds this one by a country mile!

We started with a couple aperitifs to get going and we were baffled on how two scotch drinks from the same bottle could taste so dissimilar. Pavan, (sp.?) the maitre d was quick to respond on that issue. He personally brought the said bottle and poured the shot in front of me. He was excellent throughout the night.

The meal was a mixed seafood soup for the lady and a red curry chicken for me with a side of rice. Both ordered spicy.

The meals arrived and they were both fantastic. The curry was a home run! The soup was very good. The serving size was perfect although Pavan did ask me if I wanted more rice. It wasn't needed.

We ordered two Chilean sauv blanc which was really good. Went well with our dishes.

The only critique I had about the dinner was the fact that I needed to ask to get our table cleared. Otherwise a pleasant experience.

It wasn't cheap, but drinks and food here in AD never is. Over 600D for a small meal for two with drinks is steep eats!

Definitely recommended. Pack the wallet. I'll be back.

“Made my evening”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 March 2014

Skeptical as i walked into Benjarong being very choosy about Thai food and till date the only 2 restaurants have appealed to us had been Thai Kitchen at Park Hyatt Dubai and Lemon Grass ( 3 years back quality )
Well, we left with a smile , courteous, friendly , non intrusive staff and awesome food , Even today my wife was drooling over the fish cakes we had there
We will be there more often ! have found our Thai destination in Abu Dhabi
