We wen out for a meal with family recently and my mum and I ordered the pork belly. It was absolutely disgusting, possibly the worst meal I have ever had out and mum agreed, I was so disappointed as Benny's used to be a favourite of mine. I wish they would bring back the calamari!
The waiter we had was also very ignorant, my brother's meal was 15minutes later than ours and when we asked him about it, he didn't make it an urgency but proceeded to clear the tables outside and take 3 more orders before he asked the kitchen, pretty poor form.

We were greeted promptly and seated on the veranda - great for people watching :) The drinks arrived quickly as did our entree of dumplings - highly recommended! Our main wasn't far behind and it was quite delicious. Filling too as neither of us could fit in anything else after that. We would eat here again.

Came for my birthday on a Tuesday night. For a busy night I thought the staff were outstanding. Shauna especially. We started with delicious cocktails, entree of duck rolls and quail, yummy! I had the duck stir fry, my favourite and hubby had the chic penang which had the perfect heat and flavour. We shared the best fried ice cream I've ever tasted. Overall a great night at our favourite restaurant!!!

We loved the food at Bennys. A tad expensive but worth it. We shared a combination of dumplings for entree and would highly recommend it.

We have eaten at Benny's several times now and it has been great every time. The service is alway good and the food is excellent. The San Choy Bau is our favorite entree. We will continue to go back again and again.
