“pretty decent indian food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 October 2013 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

I had ordered the food from Benaras couple of times via seamless and found it very average. However I recently visited this place for the first time, and the food quality and service was really good.

“Good Food”

Good place for lunch. If you are in Tribeca and craving for Indian food then this is the place to go - how awesome is a quality 3 course meal for under $15

“Prix Fixe Lunch a Hit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2013

Our waiter recommended the tandoori platter from among the lunch prix fixe selections. I am grateful. It was excellent. My colleague and I both agreed. By New York City standards, a great bargain. My wife had earlier tried Benares with some of her friends and they all liked the restaurant, too. May success come to this venture.

“worth a visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 May 2013 via mobile

very nice restaurant with excellent flavours. the service was great and everything tasted great. it was a nice suggestion from other trip advisor travellers.
we tried three different kinds of chicken and all had their own distinctive taste.
interresting dessert!
the only disadvantage is that it's a bit pricey!
