    If you only care about the quality of the food, you may enjoy Benares. But reservations mean nothing, the staff is not even apologetic when they inconvenience you, and expect upcharges on the bill. The lunch prix fixe said paratha and naan were included, but I and my guest were each charged $2 extra for requesting paratha. After being kept waiting over 10 minutes for out table that we had RESERVED, I was too done to start arguing over $4, but it seems to me they should have been looking for some small way to apologize to us, instead of tacking on extra charges. I will be visiting some of the other excellent choices in this area for Indian from now on. Not recommended.

    Food was mediocre at best. I was dining with my kids and wife and asked for all of the items mild. It is as if they ignored that request entirely and brought out spicy dishes for everyone. Plus, bathrooms were disgusting and filthy. Would never go back and waste money on this dump.

    I definitely recommend eating dinner here if you're in the area and craving Indian. They definitely do Indian food right here. I particularly love that they have a separate menu for the vegan options. The waiter was also very kind and generous to explain the vegan options. I had the eggplant potato curry and roti. All the dishes came with rice. The curry, roti and rice was very delicious. I enjoyed it so much that I came back for lunch today.

    I enjoy Indian cuisine but a lot of the casual restaurants in my neighborhood don't have the ambiance that I'd like while enjoying a meal. They also don't offer wine. That's why I liked my dining experience at Benares. Besides serving good food, the ambiance was nice and they have a wine list. Now I know where to go when I want to enjoy Indian cuisine the way I'd like! I recommend Benares to diners.
