Plenty of tasting plates and very tasty. Good service and a good atmosphere. I would go back when in Townsville again.

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

Food comes out as it is ready - no starter then mains plan - bit more expensive than you expect as the items are small and each part of a dish is ordered as a priced item.

I had the best meal all round at Benny's. I was traveling on my own for business and was really looking for Tapas. The waiter came out and welcomed me and explained everything. For a restaurant that is based around sharing, I was still made to feel very welcome. I had the Tuna and I highly recommend it. It was... More

While on a business trip, we looked forward to the good vibe and varied menu on offer at Bennys. An order of three menu items proved too complicated for our waiter. Two meals arrived and the third order was incorrect. The waiter was informed and the meal was returned to the kitchen. After numerous attempts to attract a waiter's attention... More

Hey there, Me and my partner love trying new restaurants, and Bennys was one we hadn't tried before and thought we would give it a go. As we were so indecisive with what meals to have and we wanted to try a bit of many different things, we decided to go with the feed me option. Veryyyy filling we couldn't... More

Used to enjoy Benny's - share menu format doesn't work well for us with food arriving 'when it's ready' and not necessarily with other dishes ordered at the same time. Not only did the wrong dish arrive but we were charged for this on our bill. Food was still good though menu a bit limited.Dining format doesn't suit us so... More

We were in town for a concert. In the past we have come to this restaurant when ever we were in town and it has declined each time and we will not be back after our last dining experience. We ordered the prawn wontons, satay chicken, teriyaki chicken, balinese chicken and san choy bau. The only decent dishes were the... More

Staff friendly, good variety to choose from. I was in a group of seven and feedback from everyone was their dishes were delicious. Portions I thought were also very good. Some of the prices I thought were over the top. Overall, food was good however being a vegetarian not sure if I would go back as limited selection of food.... More
