The waiter kept telling us that they had ran out of ingredients. First it was chicken, then prawns, chicken again, then the penang curry. Clearly... More

I only got takeaway from Benjamas but it was better than any other Thai food I've eaten. The tom yum soup and pad see u are spectacular. Highly recommend this place. I can imagine it's even better when eating in!

Dropped in for a meal while on a business trip to Newcastle. I ordered the Thai Fish Cakes & Stir Fried Duck (Thai Hot) & would rate this as one of the best. The vegetables were fresh & just cooked lightly, the duck tender & the meal sizes very generous. Loved it & will be back when next in the... More

We have been loyal customers for over 15 years & the Thai food & service here never disappoints. We ordered our usual entree of satay chicken skewers & a Tom yum soup. The chicken was delicious as always, cooked to perfection with a lot of flavour. The soup was hot & spicy - just perfect ! My little one is... More

Came here for dinner on date night and was a very good evening. Thai places always have such friendly staff! Food was good, prices were good and it's such a nice set up here, feels very authentic. Does good takeaway too!

This is a great restaurant. The food is very good, the service efficient and the prices are very reasonable. The premises are also very clean. It's fully BYO so no beer or wine on sale but there's a bottle shop attached to the hotel just up Darby Street. Highly recommended.
