My family and I were visiting the LA area and decided to try House of Benny. I called in the order and I believe I Benny's wife took our order. We are vegetarian and as soon as I told her that, she recommended the right items to get, including the vegetable spring rolls. When we picked up our dinner items,... More

The food here is amazing, ALWAYS fresh ingredients made with care. The owner was the chef at another local restaurant & he brought his signature dishes with him. The shrimp with white sauce is excellent as is all other specialties. You have your choice of white, brown or fried rice with all meals. The potstickers are wonderful & so are... More

We just love their food. The sizzling rice soup with shrimp and chicken is awesome. My favorite is the steamed fish fillet. My whole family loves this restaurant.

This is a small neighborhood-type place that is nothing fancy, but the food was very good. The servers were attentive and helpful, answering our questions to help us decide between a few menu items. The food was very good - we had a sizzling seafood dish and the quality of the seafood was excellent. We also had spinach with garlic,... More

Our grandson introduced us to this place approximately three years ago and we keep going back time and time again. Their shrimp dishes I. The different sauces... More
