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. Entre los entrantes figuran los buñuelos del chef, rellenos de hummus de garbanzos. Otras 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 conocidas del cocinero, su guiso de cordero tierno de Cachemira al aroma de azafrán e hinojo. Además de en el comedor, es posible tomar en el bar recetas más sencillas como las albóndigas de cordero al cardamomo verde o los snacks de plátano crujiente. El maridaje ideal lo proporciona la carta de cócteles, con mixes elaboradísimos como el Mumbai Martini o el Old Delhi.

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.
Restaurant
Dear Marko, Dear, First of all, thank you for visiting us. We want to apologize for the wait. Regarding the food, we are very sorry if the experience has not been as you expected. At Benares, we propose a different concept of Indian cuisine, we combine Indian techniques and recipes with local products, and therefore, our proposal differs from that of other traditional Indian restaurants. Sorry for the inconvenience. Kind regards

Lady who was serving us was thinking herself as the owner of the restaurant
She didn’t smile or never acknowledged to any of our thanks, only good was they served me a plate of gulabjamun with a candle for my birthday
The dai came almost after we finished our rice & that too after reminding him twice
Restaurant
Dear Atul, In first place, we are very sorry if the experience has not been as you expected.
Our service usually receives very good grades so we feel the inconvenience of that particular date
We invite you to visit us again to have a better experience.

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

A little paradise in the middle of Mdrid. This was a twentieth anniversary meal and did not disappoint. The decor is beautiful, with pool, candles and projections making a calm and romantic scene. The food was of the high calibre we had anticipated, but was equal led by immaculate but friendly staff. Gorgeous.

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.
