The food here is great but they have changed the menu to be lots of small servings dishes that are meant to be shared. I found it a bit too expensive and probably won't go back until they change again.

Bennys was fantastic. The service is really really good (Thanks Tom and Josh), the price was really good. Bennys manage to do traditional Indonesian, Thai and Chinese dishes all equally well. Javanese chicken, duck pancakes and pineapple chilli pork belly are the standouts!

We ordered cocktails, which didn't arrive until after the first entrée order. The menu is 'placemat' and a shared style like many Asian restaurants when mains are delivered. However several entrees would have been a better choice than the mains that were served. Our one entree had more food on it than the mains. Sometimes change is not a good... More

We celebrated an important birthday with these lovely people,the food was great,lots of variety,well cooked and the service second to none.We supplied a very special birthday cake and the staff were very happy to serve out and didn't charge extra for this service,usually most restaurants charge a large fee for this,very impressed ,would return again.

First night in Townsville, randomly chose Bennys and we were very pleased we did. Very friendly helpful service with plenty of smiles. Sharing is encouraged. All of our choices were very tasty and attractively presented. Indoor or street dining. Good casual relaxed atmosphere. Very good food and good value for money. Definitely would highly recommend Bennys

My partner and I went to Bennys for a birthday meal. We decided to go with the $55 'feed me' option, wow! We ate more then we thought possible and the food was delicious. Our waiter Kate provided service that was second to none. We wouldn't hesitate in recommending this meal option to anyone.

This used to be our hands down favourite but we went yesterday and we wont be rushing back. They removed our favourite penang and massaman dishes so we ordered the chicken and duck. Both dishes were ok but there were meals missing, we ended up with 2 more entrees than we ordered and the salt and pepper squid (when it... More

My partner and i on a business trip from melbourne. The food was lovely however the customer service left a lot to be desired. We wanted another wine and dessert however 4 staff members walked passed us empty handed in 30 minutes and failed to take our empty plates and ask us if we would like anything else. We got... More
