Well at first I have to say Thai food is an acquired taste. To enjoy good Thai food you have to know what you are ordering. Benjarong is one of Kolkata's best stand alone Thai restaurant. With very classy oriental ambience, courteous staff and most importantly delicious food this is my favourite Thai joint. Though a bit expensive, but in the end its leaves you satisfied. The Pu Nim Tod Namprik Pow a crab based appetizer, Gai Yang with papaya salad poh pia je a vegetarian spring roll are appetizers to die for. The Phad Keemao woonsen, tohu samros, Phad manow khing Gai, Phad pong Kari talay are highly recommended. The restaurant has good vegetarian spread too which is highly appreciated by my friends. In a nutshell, its a high end restaurant where if you order according to your taste you would surely be a happy man.
Well well, this could perhaps be my 5th Visit to this powerhouse of extravagant Thai dishes but I never feel allergic to it! People have pitched in with random comments like - Its too expensive; the quantity they serve is NOT good enough; I would like to pitch in with a one liner -"it is magnetic"! If you love to GORGE upon some real delightful dishes, THIS is your ultimate destination. People are skeptical of the quality of fish they serve, I have seen them excel in every aspect. Sea FOOD man...super awesome; and once you'r in the flow, the bucks seem to be too less an entity to quantify!
