We wandered into Benares and found a wonderful, authentic Indian meal at a moderate price. The portions are large, so good value for the $. The wait staff is very friendly but not hovering. We enjoyed a nice conversation with the manager after dinner. We felt as if we were in a small neighborhood place although the atmosphere is upscale, NY modern. Be sure to try the pistachio kulfi (ice cream) for dessert. We enjoyed the extra step that they take to play Indian music. Full bar at the front of the house. We can't wait to go back! Give it a try!

During our visit to NYC my husband and I were recommended Benares. The food was great and the staff was perfectly attentive. Very nice. Will come back on our next visit!

Went there because of the good reviews (seen on the TA-App) looking for lunch. We had the lunch-offer (3-course-menu), which was so much, we even take the rest at home for dinner. It tasted very well and really indian. Good choice and cheap (I think it was maybe around 12$ per menu).

Great ambience, amazing food and staff. I ordered the lobster and it was probably one of the best lobsters I've had in NYC and for it's price you cannot go wrong. I really enjoyed the chicken curry as well. Would definitely recommend to everyone.
