“Busy and popular local venue”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2013

We recently had a meal here, very enjoyable evening, the service was prompt and efficient even though it was a Monday night and the place was busy. Perhaps that is a great recommendation from locals. Adequate wine list, good food, and efficient service.

“Nice food & good service but quite expensive”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2013

The food was nice but the price was too much for what it was. I was also disappointed with the kids menu.

“Simply delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2013

There were 8 of us and we each ordered a different meal. They catered to gluten free and high allergy diets with no fuss. Every meal was presented beautifully and tasted so delicious. The staff also need to be praised.

“Friendly service but thats all”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2013

Had dinner there saturday night there were 12 of us so decided to get the two banquets, big mistake. Amount of food that was served was pitiful for the price we were charged, drinks were ordered and not delivered, in all this is probably the first and last time I will step foot in the place as I have never left a restaurant befors feeling hungry especially after spending over $65.00 on a main meal and two drinks.

Hi Sue A

Thank you for your feedback, we appreciate that you took the time to write this review. We apologise that your experience at Benny’s Asian Bistro was not a good one! It is unusual for that kind of feedback about the banquet menu, usually it is the opposite! We would have been more than happy to send out more food for you and your friends – we definitely do not like to have our guests leaving hungry! As for the drinks service, that is something that we do not like to have happen and your review, like all the others, will be shown to our staff to improve service.

Kind regards
Belinda Colledge

Had a wonderful dinner here, the service was excellent and everyone loved their meals, The tofu stirfry was excellent and the lamb shanks amazing, the mongolian lamb is always a winner too - everything excellent but a bit expensive, we will go back
