We would definately recommended this restaurant. We were running late for our lunch reservation but staff did not show any annoyance at all. We ordered the sushi tasting plate, home made spring rolls, san choi bau & chicken wings. Everything was so fresh, quick & delicious!!! New fav spot in Townsville.

We were really looking forward to eating at Benny's. We even checked out the on line menu!
We started with Duck rolls which arrived almost before the excellent waitress had left. The cucumber was long thick strips not julienned, couldn't taste any spring onion or coriander mentioned in the menu and the duck, fatty and tasteless.
The Lamb shank Massaman curry also fell over. Although the shank was cooked perfectly it hadn't been cooked in the curry so hadn't picked up any of the curry flavor, which was lacking in depth anyway. Why they went for fussy bits of unpeeled Kippler potatoes instead of the normal big chunky peeled Sebagoe type potatoes which absorb flavours I don't know. We were also startled to find pineapple chunks in the curry, they didn't work that well.
The Hokkien pork stirfry was good but way too salty.
We seem to have chosen the wrong food but at those prices everything on the menu should be first class. We may try again the next time we are in Townsville though.

Ate here a couple of times during our week in Townsville - great food both times, a bit expensive but you get what you pay for. Friendly and attentive staff.

So fresh, wide choice for food and beverages. Children had their own menu which was not the stock "chicken nuggets". Also roomy booths and tables.
