Recent reviews

Delicious meal  . From their curries to soups Benjarong thai is best , with their friendly staff , they serve meals quickly at your table with perfectly fluffy rice to go with your meal , their food is better than any thai restaurant we have been to , I highly recommend this restaurant as many others like me do .

So thought I would try this place, got a 3.4 which came with all the food from the sea, it didn’t specify it came with all the coriander from howick though, I’m surprised there isn’t a shortage, wow what a disappointment, calamari was well over cooked, got 2 prawns and a couple of small scallops! Terrible !

I've been here quite a few times and never been disappointed. The other night my partner and I got take away and We received the best customer service. The food is always great , great flavours and portions would recommend to anyone who enjoys Thai food!

The restaurant had a great atmosphere, decorated well. The food was OK and contained peanut and coconut milk. The wait was a bit long for a fairly empty restaurant that night. The service was pretty average in my opinion. A dish to try is their scallop curry with rice

This is our go to restaurant in Howick and it is amazing.  The food is divine and the staff are so friendly, welcoming and go out of their way to help you.  We highly recommend this place.

Every time we have a special occasion or just fancy eating out, we look to Benjarong Thai in Howick for it's authentic Thai atmosphere, delicious food and friendly staff. Lets start with the food, because boy, is it delicious. We haven't tried the full menu yet, but we do love the red duck curry with it's crispy skin and yummy, slightly sweet curry sauce, the green curry with its aromatic, delicate sauce, the peanut curry which is divine and the yellow curry. I would recommend all of these things to anybody, including families with young children, because they are amazing and the flavors can be mild on request. Equally yummy are the curry puffs and spring rolls and I can vouch for the Roti side street as a dessert. At Benjarong, they have really nailed the atmosphere too. The building features a little stick roof in the corner (I want to say it's hay, but I'm not sure), thai decorations, tall candles, and little lanterns. Thai music also plays in the background, adding to the places feel. I have visited Benjarong once for lunch, and countless times for family dinners, and I have to say, the atmosphere is somehow better at dinner time, but the choice is up to you. The staff are friendly, we have never had anyone be rude to us, they are always respectful and polite, waving goodbye to us when we leave. I would really recommend Benjarong Thai, and I am not sure what other reviewers were thinking when they gave it 3.6 stars!

My first time was in 2012. Our family experience wasn't that nice that time. Had our mix entree still cold on the inside even if it was deep fried. So My husband told the waitress and they did apologies and replaced our entree with a new one. Main was good I recall. Last year we tried to dine in again and everything was different. Food was very nice and hot. Didn't get the chance to take photos as we were very hungry that night. Since then we always grab a take away from this Thai restaurant. My favourite is the fresh spring rolls. Ambience 3.8 Food 4.2 Staff/Service 4.5

This is the first time I've been here. staff is friendly. they helped a lot while I was there. Food is okay, just not the way I imagined, still nice :). Environment is good as well, really organised. I will definitely come here again.

Best Thai around. Don't bother going anywhere else. Although prices are higher than some you definitely get your money's worth, every time. Pad Thai & Chicken cashew are 2 of the best.

Visited last Thursday night with a very large group of people. We only ordered mains and the staff handled the orders very well. We all seemed to get our meals at pretty much the same time and they were delicious. I had the prawns in curry sauce that came on a sizzling plate. Very tasty.

We are Benjarong's regular customers , Always good food and fab service , Roast Duck Curry is always the dish to order ! We enjoyed ourselves here and as well as the kids .

It must have been years since we last visited Benjarong. Everything seemed to be the same. I had noodle duck & my wife had the Bangkok delights with prawns & spring roll, for a simple lunch. As usual, Thai food tends to be on the sweet side. My duck noodle was nice, both in taste & in appearance. The spring roll had a bit of sourness which was not good. (Food - 3.5/5; Service - 4/5; Ambience - 3.5/5)

Service here was amazing and friendly, came here with my family for my parents anniversary and we're happy with all the dishes served. Loved the atmosphere and would say it would be ideal to take a date for a nice dinner.

Had a takeaway from here the other night that was delicious and full of flavour. The serving size was great, with enough to share between two people. I have seen some reviews saying the serving sizes are small, so maybe that differs depending on the dish you get. Will definitely be getting takeaways from here again!
