we used to have this restaurant back home, and it was one of my favorites, but it got shut down for some reason. i was glad i found it when i was in bahrain. but i was really disappointed! the food wasn't as good as it used to be, the chicken tenders were very dry and stateless, the salad wasn't so fresh, and the dessert i used to admire, apple crumble, wasn't so good either.
but on the other hand, the drinks were fine, the service was good, and the place's atmosphere was nice.

We had the spicy mini chicken fillet burgers with fries for lunch at Bennigan's. The food was well presented, service was quite quick and the food was finger licking good!! The staff in here are most pleasant and helpful. The entertainment on the evening is really enjoyable if you don't mind a bit of oriental karaoke style singing. They do like a bit of audience participation and the singing duo are extremely friendly and welcoming. It's all good down to earth fun.

Thank TheLadyChris

We went to Bahrain for the short holiday after Ramadan.
Most of the good restaurants were fully booked, so I asked at the hotel and they recommended me this place.
At first, they seated us at the bar, which was packed with service men and women shouting and laughing so loud that we asked to be seated at the restaurant area.
Here we found another group of service men shouting, cursing and doing wathever you can imagine.
Our drinks came after 15 minutes, then we placed our order with 3 different waitresses.....when we decided it was taking TOO long, we found the waitresses dancing at the bar, entertaining the service men.
Our food finally came...calling that shrimp "jumbo" is like calling my cat a lioness.
My steak was just warm, the mashed potatoes definitely cold.
I ordered a "Stella", they brought me "Carlsberg".
Never ever again back here.

Lovely atmosphere where you can bring the kids and have a beer with your food at the same time...nice!

The smoking bar is lovely and while small (fills with about 12 people) the atmosphere builds up quickly.

Loads of drinks promotions etc.
