We visited this restaurant last week whilst holidaying in nerja, we've been going to nerja for 10 years and never noticed this gem of a restaurant! We went on Friday evening, my husband isn't a fan of Asian food but wanted to try it anyway. We had sushi (my 4 year old loved it!!) a few Chinese starters 2 main courses the chicken in garlic and chilli and the crispy beef is just to die for!!! Rice 6 lagers and juice and it came to €50 which for Asian is amazingly cheap, we are used to paying well over £100 in England. My husband was so hooked we ended up going again the following night as it was our last night. If only all restaurants were all like this in England I'd be a few stone heavier!!!! Definitely recommend paying them a trip.

Asian Ben is very centrally located on the square just off the Balcón de Europa. There is outside seating with tables in a small sheltered terrace facing the square, and inside seating with more attractive tables and chairs.

They offer Japanese, Chinese and Thai food. We had been before and had not been over-impressed with the Thai dishes.

This time we chose the €27.50 Chinese set menu for two and the food was very good and for just €13.75 per person it was excellent value.

The set meal for 2 comprised of Chicken and Sweetcorn soup or Spring Rolls, followed by Crispy Duck with pancakes, plum sauce, cucumber and spring onion and then Beef in Oyster sauce (served sizzling hot), Sweet and Sour Chicken and egg fried rice. All were very good but the best part was the Duck - excellent quality, crispy and generously sized. The only small negative was that the Sweet and Sour Chicken was served with cocktail fruits from a tin. It would have been so much better with say just pinepple.

We had a bottle of El Coto Rioja Crianza red wine for €12.95. The service was good.
