In my opinion there are only two Thai restaurants in Newcastle that are awesome and Benjamas is one of them (Thara Thong Thai on Hunter St is the other) The food and service is great. The staff are always there to accommodate your needs.
Along with the main stay dishes like Pad Thai, Pad See Ew and the Red Curry we often pick a couple of randoms and have never had a bad one.

I would recommend Benjamas to anyone

Have found out this place was sold to Chinese which explains why the Thai isn't as good. Last time I went everyone on our table of 12 complained their dish was so so sweet and we all had different dishes. When you find a larb and Tom Yum sickly sweet, you know something is wrong.

Great service and food is unbelievably good. Receive a large amount for the price you pay and they will let you take the left-overs home (how could you not!) but you do need to order rice separately. BYO which is convenient and only $1.50 pp. Friendly and pleasant atmosphere which wasn't too loud despite being busy, and the decor makes it a unique place to eat. Service until 10pm and does takeaway.

Fabulous authentic Thai cuisine, beautiful crockery, service was a little disjointed and they forgot one of our dishes but it was not a biggie ... definitely be back.
