Major Fail

After many years of dining in and take away from this establishment I wont be going back. We placed a take away order, when I picked up, the girl read back the order as I had placed it so I continued on home to my guests. We unpacked the food and the meals were wrong. we rang, and were told... read more

I had Singapore Noodles, which were bland and tasteless. My partner had Sweet & Sour Pork, which was all batter and no meat, with not much sauce. Very disappointing.

My family always take me here when I visit Brisbane, and over the years, the staff has changed but the service and food has not. Service is still tops, and the food is great. I prefer ready made Vietnamese rolls but the others like to make them up themselves which is a treat. The bbq pork is still delicious, as... More

My wife and I ordered chicken lemongrass and chilli. There was no chilli and no lemongrass in the meal. Very bland. We were expecting authentic Vietnamese cuisine but frankly I could do better, and I'm an Aussie! The staff didn't come near us to offer tea/ coffee or desert. And the staff weren't over run with customers. Given the meals... More

We went here for dinner as we were staying nearby and had flown in late. The staff were friendly, quick, helpful and energetic. The food was pretty ordinary, the portions were fine, the choices reasonable, prices were reasonable, the rstnt was very clean and there was a general feeling of good will. Karaoke started up at the end of our... More

Menu confusing. Didn't realise I had to put the dry noodles in the food myself . Probably would of been on if I was dining in - but take away : had no access to other bowls etc . Had to eat meal without noodles - was nice. Wasted my money & noodles.

Nothing special about Ben's. Usual Chinese and Vietnamese fare. Seems to cater particularly for Asian customers, especially with karaoke front and centre on stage every Friday and Saturday night. Some terrible crimes against humanity are perpetrated on these nights. Best to ring for take away unless bad karaoke is your thing. Service is quick and efficient and prices are very... More

Ben's Vietnamese is consistently the best Vietnamese food in central Brisbane area other than going to Inala and Darra. As far as I know it has been the same owner for at least 25 years and the service, food and decor is still the same and doesn't change - for the better. Service is quick and prompt no frills service,... More

We recently went for lunch on a Sunday, they have a $12.90 lunch banquet for 4 people, the food was sensational. They do karaoke on Friday and Saturday nights that can be a bit of fin too.
