The liquor license placard for Ben Tre says:

“A neighborhood restaurant serving Vietnamese cuisine. Seating capacity of 20 inside. Total Occupancy Load of 20. Sidewalk Café with 6 seats.”

Ben Tre opened up in the former Yamas (and various shawarma spots) space back in August. Props on proper sign! Any fans of the pho?

    Love this place! The pho is good (not out of this world but solid) and the menu has great variety, plus the portions are generous and the service is quick and friendly. It’s also family-run – dad is the chef and one of the servers is his daughter.

    AKA, the late, (sorta) great M’Dawg space, plus at least one other short-lived incarnation. I sincerely hope Ben Tre breaks the “curse”, it’s a nice addition to the A-M restaurant manifest.

      I’m trying to remember what was in there before the hot dog place.

      • Josh Gibson

        For a long time, this space was Burrito Brothers

  • AdmoDan

    This place is very solid. Been at least 4-5 times, always pretty busy with good service and consistently tasty food. I’m very happy that it seems like something will finally make it in this space!

    Place is gooood! It has a huge menu (which sometimes makes me weary) but I have tried a bunch of different things and pretty much all really good. That being said I think they could re-invest some money into the interior but if that foods good who cares…
