Reviews for Ben Thai Cafe

My first time here, fiancé has grabbed food to go a few times. Service was attentive and friendly. Indoor seating was nice on a colder day. We arrived hungry and finished both plates satisfied, no leftovers today (-: Overall, we enjoyed our meal and will plan to add this to our Thai food rotation. Thai iced tea- pro tip- check in to get 50% off on non-alcoholic drinks. Fiancé said this hit the spot but was tad on the sweet side (probably to be expected!). Duck soup- nice full review
The food was very yummy. I wouldn't particularly come out of my way for it, but if it was my only option it would suffice Paradise wings were sweet. My only complaint is that the wings were oddly shaped and had quite a bit of fat on them. The fried basil that came on top were delicious though! Duck curry was very tasty and I'd recommend getting this dish! Was expecting a little larger portion size of the duck and less fat on the duck but other than that the flavors blended full review
I haven't found a Thai food place that I really like around the Bay Area after living here for 11 years, so honestly I had very low expectation from Ben Thai Cafe. I always miss the fresh flavorful delicious Thai food when I visited Thailand, and had never been to any place in US that can achieve the level of freshness or deliciousness with the explosion of Thai sources. However, Ben Thai cafe did remind me the amazing flavors from Thailand. I really enjoyed the duck curry, full review
