Lovely place, tables are well spaced out which is great in this difficult time. Very good food and service.

Bentwood never fails to impress. Came in on the weekend with a group of friends and I enjoyed the food so much I had to come back. The staff are all so lovely, the coffee was delicious!

We spoke with the waitress as we wanted to switch beef for mushrooms (two veggie diners) and she assured us this was no problem, she would inform the chef yet when are food arrived after a substantial wait, it came with the meat so we had to wait further for the veggie option. Also $7.70 for a glass of orange juice is pretty steep.

Food was great but we were disappointed to be given high table with stools when we booked and requested high chairs for the kids. It was very awkward for us and the kids. Wait staff failed to explain ordering system after we were seated.

The food is incredible, never disappoints and the staff were so polite even though they were crazy busy. Best chilli scramble eggs and make the best chai in the land !

As usual, the food was delicious - but ordering online at the table was complicated by difficulty in ordering “sides” which were not clearly listed, but the waiter was very helpful in overcoming this problem.

It was chaotic, I booked my table two weeks in advance and we had to wait for 30 minutes. In the end we were put on a small table right by the toilets. All staff were really rude and unfriendly, except for one male staff member who was lovely. Coffees took ages, they got our coffee and food order wrong twice. I’ve worked in hospitality for years so I understand how stressful it can be, but this was really disappointing. I live locally and definitely won’t come back or recommend Bentwood to anyone.

We used to love going to this cafe, but now customers have to use their online ordering app. we wont be going again. When I have a working or social lunch, I want to be able to relax into it, not have to do all the work. I also would rather give money to a venue that is employing people than taking advantage of the good will of its customers.

Going to catch up with friends only to have to spend most of the time on your phone trying to figure out the anti social impersonal and clunky mr yum app. Then it automatically adds a 15% tip which is outrageous considering the mr yum app takes away any kind of service that would deserve a tip.
