“Under”

Good food- when it after very long waiting arrived. We where warned about the warm plates- but when the food appeared, the plates where really cool..
Staff up with more people - the chef is talented...

“Very enjoyable!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2013

We revisited Asian Ben's on May 14. Gorgeous day so sat on their extensive outside terrace, facing the sea. We ordered salmon sashimi which was beautifully presented and delicious with plenty of wasabi - a personal addiction! We followed with the crispy duck with pancakes, telling the charming waiter we would order something else if still hungry. Impossible. The serving was enormous, again first class presentation and no stinginess with the pancakes. I paid the bill (treating my husband this time) and personally I didn't find the drinks too expensive as has been mentioned before. Possibly the tubo cerveza was a little steep - I think it was about 2.30e but he only had one so that was OK. The house rose was about 9e - again I don't think that's too bad for restaurant prices. But more importantly the food was excellent - as someone else has commented, much better than some other restaurants serving similar food on this Paseo. Next time we go - which will be next week as we enjoyed our food so much - we will try the teppanyaki which is cooked at a table at the back of the restaurant.

“Good fun and excellent food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 21, 2012

We had the tepanyaki and enjoyed the excellent food as much as the entertaining chef. Worth to repeat.

“Asia Ben at Torrox”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2012

New restaurant, which has not yet got it's own listing on Trip Advisor????
We have now tried this new restaurant on two seperate occasions, both excellent.
The service was outstanding and the food delicious (just like the Nerja restaurant) - we enjoyed the Peking Duck, the portion was enormous and cooked to perfection, crispy on the outside and moist and tender meat.
We would thoroughly recommend this restaurant, for food, service and location.
