Ok Thai Food, not the best – I have been hopping from Thai restaurant to Thai restaurant from Monroe to the East side comparing Pad Thai dishes. I must say that the one at Benjarong is my least favorite. The flavors were more "muddled" and less distinct. It is very hard to explain, but with really good Pad Thai you just can't stop eating it, everything is in perfect balance with savory/sweet/tangy/spicy, with that crunch of nuts and perfectly tender meat. At Benjarong the nuts lacked crunch, the meat was somehow lost, the flavors all around were just not as pronounced, and the spice was not well mixed ( I bit into several VERY hot spots in my dish). I highly recommend venturing to Redmond for a sweet little hole-in-the-wall called Noodle Land, where everything is fresh, fresh, fresh! Or to Kirkland, to the unassuming but delicious Tommy Thai restaurant.
AMAZING – Easily the best restraunt in monroe. Owners are so friendly and the service is awsome. Great visuals like a salt water aquarium and murials on walls. calm lighting and food is perfect. Even for a picky chick like me. They don't even mind my 3 energetic boys! great tea and wine plus aforidable prices even on a budget. I would recomend to any one old and young. Also the best coconut and mango icecreams. ENJOY!!!
Best Thai Restaurant in Monroe – Benjarong is by far my favorite restaurant in Monroe. From the moment you step through the door, the servers greet you with a smile and seat you immediately. The menus they give you offer a variety of choices such as Phad Thai, Phad See Ew, Garlic Delight, Prik King, and much more. Once you chose an item on the menu, you then make a choice between chicken, pork, beef, or tofu. Once you've chosen the type of meat you want, you then chose the amount of stars, or the "spiciness" you want from a scale of 1 to 5. (I always get chicken, 3 stars). The food is exceptional and very affordable (Only about $9 a plate!) They also offer a variety of appitizers - my favorite being the Crab Delight. The atmosphere is calming and relaxing- a perfect place for a date.
Great Thai – Great food, service, and prices. The food is fresh and always satisfies. If you want a quick inexpensive lunch this is a good choice. Aslo dinner or takout, the soups are great as well as the Pad Thai. I don't think one could go wrong with this restaurant. In fact, my wife is bringing me home some tongiht! I can't wait!
