We had a lovely evening at Ben Wei. Jim's food is highly recommended and the service was great. The pot stickers was out of this world.
I shall be back at Ben Wei for another great evening.

Very friendly and efficient waitress and staff. Food was different from what we've experienced before and this added to our enjoyment. Another bonus is that it is quite an open plan restaurant even though situated in the Wembley Square, so for a "safe, sanitized and airy area" it is great especially for those patrons concerned about visiting indoor restaurants. My one negative comment was that I did not enjoy the flavour of the oil used in frying the Dim Sum. Wine is also reasonably priced.
Food and Service was good. It was a nice experience!
My friends and I had such an amazing time at Ben Wei, the food and drinks were incredible and our waitress was super attentive and bubbly, she really made the afternoon! We actually went back a second time and still had a really good experience. Would definitely recommend!
