We went to this restaurant in the Woolloongabba district of Brisbane in mid December and we were very impressed with their food. It is on the upper level of a small shopping mall area. The place is very clean with pleasant staff. The menu selection is huge; a person would be hard pressed to not find their favourite dish. The... More

We popped in here for dinner whilst staying at the Diana Plaza Hotel next door. The food was good and plentiful. The service was prompt. I thought the prices were a bit on the high side - but if we'd headed into Southbank, they probably would have been the same anyway.

We have been going to Ben 's for years now, ever since Bobby and Twee, (I know that 's spelt wrong ) had it. It has some of the best Vietnamese food in Brisbane, and the prices are very reasonable. Gets a bit busy at times, but the food and service are pretty good. We were in Vietnam last year... More

I recently attended my friend's birthday dinner at Ben's. It was a Friday night and it was busy and fairly noisy. We ordered the banquet and it was really nice food. You have the choice of either Vietnamese food or Chinese, we chose Vietnamese. The atmosphere was really good and fun, and the karaoke just made it better. I would... More

This is a well established, well known large restaurant that caters for 2 people up to large capacity parties. We visited for a friends 50th birthday and l was pleasantly surprised that half the table ordered off the menu and the other ordered a banquet. Majority of food came out at the same time which was nice that we all... More

The service here is very poor as everyone just ignores you and all of a sudden when it suits then they turn up and say right order now even if your not ready! The food was very bland and lacked authentic taste but it was plentiful with good size servings. The karaoke is the best asset fir this place and... More

This was our first Christmas function for 2013 . There were eight at our table ,plenty of room for the many plates of Chinese dishes we ordered ; the service was outstanding ; the wait staff were most polite and smartly dressed . The karaoke came to life just before nine o'clock . Ben's location is across the street from... More
