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.

Para picar algo mientras te tomas un cocktail prueba la zona bar, encontrarás una selección de tapas inspiradas en la street food India

    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.

    The restaurant was great in terms of both ambience and food. The service was spot on and most of the dishes we ordered were up to the mark and decently priced.

    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.

    The food was great as usual but the service was not really good. For example we had to wait around 20 mins or more for the main menu and the desert menu as well.. This is our third visit, but the service was much better during the previous visit.

    2nd time we've visited Benares, first time was May 2016 and neither time has disappointed. The whole experience is amazing, from the cocktails to the restaurant and of course the food. Unfortunately we live 5hrs away from Madrid otherwise we would visit Benares more often. Can't wait to go back when we're next in Madrid

    Lovely people, attentive and a good service. The tasting menu was perfect accompanied by the recommended wines per course. The sommelier was informative and engaging. This is a wonderful experience and a great opportunity to sample Atul's famous cuisine without London prices. It maybe called a tasting menu but it is substancial so be hungry! Highly recommended.
