Time Out Says

We imagine Benjarong was quite the mover and shaker in its heyday, but our first impressions are that it's a little dated. Happily, it’s rather busy, which we take as a positive sign, and put our initial dismay to the back of our minds.

Things liven up with the arrival of a traditional Thai dancer, who puts on quite a show while we wold down prawn crackers, and if you look past the décor then the atmosphere is really quite lovely.

The evening only proves to get better when food arrives. It’s substantial in portion size and meat certainly isn’t scrimped on in the case of the Massaman curry. All the usual suspects are on the menu, though some dishes do fare better than others. It's not the best Thai food we’ve had in the city, but you're sure to enjoy it, and there’s a good choice of classic Thai dishes, including vegetarian options.

It doesn't hit the lofty heights of other Thai spots in the city, but it's a decent meal in a longstanding hotel. If you’re in the area and fancy a curry you could do a lot worse.
