    We had a lovely dinner at Benares on the set deal. The champagne cocktail is extremely nice and very moreish. Definitely one to try again. We were treated like royalty and the food was all really excellent. Definitely recommend Benares for a classy Indian meal.

  • ((((( 25 August 2018 by Zoé from London

    It was a super experiance for me! I‘ve loved the foods, which were exactly enough bit not too much. The location is super chic and I felt a little bit underdressed but the waitors served me as good as everyone else even though I was not perfectly dressed and much younger than everyone else. The waitors did not make any differents between me and the other guests.
    The food was great and super delicious!

    This was another fantastic lunch at one of our favourite restaurants. As always, courteous reception staff, attentive waiters, wonderful, tasty, food and the extra birthday treat made for a wonderful dining experience. We shall be returning in the not too distant future.

    Had such a lovely relaxing lunch. Set menu and champagne cocktails. The meal was full of flavours which excited the palette and made you want to explore more. Delicious

    We were seated in one of the private dining rooms and the food and service was brilliant! I took some guests who'd never dined in a Michelin restaurant before and Benares didn't disappoint.

    Absolutely fabulous food, fantastic service and very friendly staff

  • ((((( 16 August 2018 by Susan from Folkestone

    We both really enjoyed our meal here, from the champagne cocktail made with their delicious homemade syrup to the petite fours everything was delicious and beautifully presented. I particularly loved the octopus starter and the duo of pairing wines was wonderful, with really good choices of wines interestingly explained. My husband is from India and can’t stand British Indian food but there was not a drop of cream or orange food colouring in sight. Everything was beautifully flavoured and blended.
