This place is really busy with lots of Chinese and Vietnamese who frequent it, which is usually a good sign. Went there with a party of 8 and every course was excellent. Meals were tasty, good sized and reasonable price. Ambiance is pretty average and tables are cramped. The language skills of some of the waiting staff are limited, but they are pleasant and helpful.
Recommended for a good meal, but not if you are looking for somewhere intimate and romantic.

Pleasant staff, a good meal. We went here for Chinese New Year. There was certainly a loud, and I mean loud celebration when the lion dancers turned up. The staff really joined in, it was a lot of fun. Food is good, too.

if you go early - especially if you have children, then the service is quick. i cannot speak about the later times as we get their fairly early and are not sharing the table service with too many others. they restaurant can hold quite a few people so be smart and you'll have the best dinner with great service. The food is awesome and good value for this day and age.

A saturday night and at 6:00pm the restaurant is full (of tables and chairs). Even before the patrons turn up it is difficult to move.
When the next seat is 300mm away and it belongs to another table across the "walkway" you can expect much bumping and inconvenience. Well that's the way they seat you here.
The food is apparently authentic but that means a lot of boiled stuff that you assemble yourself. Season and spice to your taste.
Service is obtained by waving your hands and seeking service. The bill is also difficult to get and you wait to pay.
No reason to come back to Ben's........
