New menu...new concept. Just ask and say feed me and for $55 per person you will be feed. You wont leave the restaurant hungry. If your still hungry ask for more food. Great staff...excellent restaurant manager and knows how to look after you. A favorite place to visit as offen as you can.

A very limited menu which was made worse by very slow and inattentive service. Went there a couple of years back when last in Townsville and absolutely loved it. One of the best meals we had shared. Don't bother now. Asked for an entrée before mains but when everything got delivered at the same time, wait staff said chefs just... More

Service was so efficient, all the staff were so helpful, cheery and I thought genuinely so! I had the green beans and green prawn curry; I could not fault either other than the curry could have been a little spicier. I also ordered steamed rice but the curry helping was adequate in that the rice was probably not required but... More

This place has amazing staff will give it that. The drink I ordered was flat however working in the hospitality industry didn't want to complain. We ordered oysters as an entrée and received 2 dozen for the price of one. The sauce was really fresh and yummy. We ordered 4 other dishes to share they were all lovely. All in... More

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.
