Great little restaurant which has been in Bathurst for around 25-30 years, as far as I can remember. Sadly though, they closed down on February 27, 2016. I think it's only temporary though, because there is a small sign stating that they're awaiting new owners, but it looks pretty desolate for now. I'm not sure if they'll keep the Benjarong... More

One of our regular spots - food is tasty, the service is great and the cost is very reasonable. It helps to book on Friday and Saturday evenings.

We have never have had a bad meal in the 7 years of living in Bathurst. Benjarong is our go to Thai restaurant. The service is quick, the staff are friendly and food is always excellent.

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
