Cuando uno franquea la puerta de Benares, abandona todas sus idesa preconcebidas sobre lo que debe ser un restaurante indio. Aquí no hay abigarramiento y jaleo, sino una sala lujosa con un servicio atentísimo. La decoración es suntuosa, con toques dorados, mobiliario en materiales naturales y lámparas metálicas: el marco ideal para la alta cocina india en la que se ofrece una versión de autor de la cocina del país asiático, con guiños a los paladares españoles.

Las legumbres ocupan un lugar destacado en la oferta de Benares. A veces se introducen como guarniciones: es el caso de las imprescindibles lentejas Dal negras o amarillas, una de las especialidades de la casa. Entre los platos más conocidos del cocinero, su guiso de cordero tierno de Cachemira al aroma de azafrán e hinojo. Además de en el comedor, en el bar se ofrecen tapas con toque indio como el Naan de Txipirones . El maridaje ideal lo proporciona la carta de cócteles, con mixes elaboradísimos como el Mumbai Martini o el Love in the Morning o el Duende.

    This is upscale Indian food. The service was outstanding, friendly, and very attentive. The restaurant is exquisitely appointed with a fancy modern dining room paired with a whimsical garden terrace complete with a massive water feature. We had the executive lunch. Everything was cooked perfectly except that the fish (bacalao) seemed way too salty (however I didn’t not complain to the restaurant and give them a chance to fix it). This is a Michelin rated establishment, so the stakes are higher. I do believe they lived up to their rating.

    Delicious and innovative food marrying Spanish and Indian ingredients. We sat in the garden and the atmosphere was great. Very good cocktails to finish made by a mixologist who talked us through the options and tailored the drinks to our tastes. A Madrid gem.

    High quality Indian restaurant in central Madrid. A bit pricey but the quality of dishes was top. Affordable with the 20% discount. Real Indian taste. I will comeback for sure.

    Quite a long wait to only get the food menu to start with. Food was OK in general, but not genuinely Indian in terms of seasoning and spice level. The venison dish was very salty. Clearly not at its best. An OK restaurant, but not Indian fine dining.
