Have been coming here for a few years with friends. Always love the ma po tofu and have added fried eggplant with chilli and garlic green beans to the list.
Food is prompt, always hot and I struggle to leave some for leftovers.
Classic Chinese...restaurant layout so not always the quietest atmosphere but worth it for the food.More
Me and my partner just got back from visiting the west coast, so naturally neither of us could be bothered to cook, and a good Chinese place was on our minds so we tried eating here. He got sweet and sour pork on rice and...I got some chicken and mushrooms on rice. We both loved our meals. Fairly priced, a nice place to sit in, they definitely did us a favour cooking for us. We’ll definitely come back to try some different food.More
Food was delicious, Staff were all very friendly and helpful. Highly recommended if you want a real taste of Chinese food. My friend first taste of sichuan chilli fish, she loved it. I lived in chengdu,.... Really love the food. Vegetables could have more garlic,...but its all good and I love tsing Tao,.... As NZ craft beer is seldom good. All in all, until now my favorite Chinese restaurant.More
On a street full of restaurants we randomly chose Benson Chinese Restaurant to have a catch-up over our meal. The setting was very basic - formica topped tables and standard style seating with tables in various configurations to allow for couples, groups, etc. The service...was very quick and the meals we chose were simply presented but very generous portions. If you aren't looking for 'special' but just need a filling bite to eat, then there is nothing wrong with choosing this restaurant.More
I live in Christchurch and have been a regular customer of Benson's for over a decade. The cuisine is simply the best ... full of taste and flavour; value for money it is incomparable; the service is friendly and efficient. Benson's is one of the...main reasons I continue to live in Christchurch post-earthquake.More
