From the moment one walks through the door everything is taken care of and you are at ease immediately. I required gluten free food and there was no need to remind anyone which is rare to find. The food was exquisite and everything timed to a 'T'. We could not falter our experience at Benares and will definitely be returning, thank you to all who served us.

Was a very nice experience. Not to stuffy. Was a little dirty for an establishment of its reported standard. Food was tasty and looked good. Set menu was good value. My girlfriend ate a la Carte, the lamb cutlets were delicious if a little fatty. Wine waiter was very good and recommended a very tasty and reasonably priced wine. A little bit difficult to understand what the waiters were saying when explaining the dishes, they needed to speak a little louder and clearer
