we have been to 'The Ben' several times and never had a bad meal. All of their food is very good and the servings are good. The only minus is that it can be hard to get a seat.

Whilst it's not the best Thai I've ever had, it's still a place I've gone back to quite a few times, the food is good and the service is just the same. Pleasant and happy to joke around. I've tried numerous dishes and they have all been decent. Like I said, it's not a 5 star restaurant. But for a... More

Tired and very ordinary food. Menu has never changed and the food is very ordinary. Service is OK, but the the food is very average at best. If you are looking for great Thai in Bathurst may i suggest the excellent and ever reliable Vanilla Bean.

The Benjarong Thai is old and a bit tired inside but this doesn’t mean it is not great. The service was quick and very friendly, which a few laughs which made it very relaxed. The green chicken curry is highly recommended and so is the hot plate. The curry puffs are some of the best in Bathurst. It is the... More

The place is rather old and the decor is basically what must have been the previous restaurant - probably Italian or Greek - but now just a few Thai pictures and decorative items scattered about to make it look a "Thai" restaurant. We ordered fish cakes, curry puffs, Larb (chicken), panang beef, and pork with garlic and pepper. The fish... More

I love their dessert - Thai custard with ice cream more than their main dishes! I will purposely go there for their dessert after my dinner, just to satisfy my craving. Haha! Go and try! You will definitely like it! =D

I'm a local but every experience here has left me disappointed with the value. In 14 yrs I've eaten here 3 times only. The food was tasty but too pricey and very small portions. We travel to Sydney fairly often and, in passing, have discovered fantastic Thai food in Katoomba. That's where we go now for a good Thai experience.
