The portion is generous for its price. Their duck noodle soup and a spicy chicken dish are very yummy. A good hang out place for somewhere casual and tasty food.

Bensons has moved to Riccarton after the earthquake. Food is authentic Chinese taste. Had Kung Pao Chicken and various other dishes. Tastes authentic and the quantity generous. The prices are good. Around mid $15-$20 range, not expensive at all for the quality and quantity we received. The service is reliable, yet not overly excellent, as expected from most Chinese restaurants. But at least they are not rude. One needs to set their expectations lower when they have Chinese food. For the price we paid we were satisfied with the taste and the quantity we received. Recommend.

Very good service from Benson. Is now at Riccarton Rd number 113 I think. . Huge portions, very good set menu value n they are very accomadating so u can switch dishes of same or similar value for little or no extra. Plus 2 free corcages for byo wine with set menu, excellent idea. Had takeaway too also great. . Huge won tons are to die for. . Would recommend. Not romantic setting but lots of chinese ppl eating there. Always a good sign :)

Booked a table for 2 here on Friday evening, after reading good reviews on this restaurant, what a let down.

We were shown to a table and our orders were swiftly taken, the staff were ok, nothing great about them though, they looked like they really didn't want to be working there!

We ordered a rice dish with duck, this was awful, so hard and chewy, we had a real problem trying to chew the food. We also had a beef and a lamb dish, both were swimming in oil, and really unplesant, not chinese food as we know it all, and this has to be the worst chinese restaurant we have eaten in Christchurch.

The restuarant was full of chinese people, so we were hoping this was a good sign, but sadly not,

We will not return.
