    Poor delivery experience

    I ordered on Seamless, and it took almost two hours to get my food, despite my location being three blocks from the restaurant. When my food arrived, it was cold and they did not include the naan I ordered (and paid for). Not sure how the food would have tasted if it was hot, but I will never order from Benares again.

    Glad we took the chance!

    We read some mixed review of this place, but decided to go anyway. We were very glad that we did! The food was excellent. We are vegetarian and had 2 appetizers, 2 dishes, bread, raita, and 4 drinks. Everything was outstanding. I'd recommend this place to anyone.

    I ordered a Lunch Special Vegetarian platter and was totally disappointed.... The salad, raita, chutneys that came with is pretty much inedible. Vegetarian platter comes with two main dishes, so I got Paneer Tikka Masala and Aloo Gobi. Both were bland and I couldn’t finish it. I can’t believe i paid $10 for this lunch... Overall sub-par quality and quantity

    Best Indian delivery!

    Ive lived on the UWS for 10 years, and this is the best Indian food and service in the (nearest) 'hood in my experience. They've been consistently polite, puntual, and priced-right. The food quality is top notch -- white meat, flavorful spices, and generous portions. I highly recommend!

    Got some takeout, and it was an unusually nice experience. A very patient and charming man on the phone helped me with choosing my food, and when I arrived before my order was ready, I was given a seat. The restaurant looked very nice, with modern, pleasant decor. Everyone who worked there said hello and smiled. The food itself was very tasty, and a good value -- $15.75 for a sizeable appetizer, entree, chutnies, raita, and a large nan and rice. Enough for one extremely hungry diner, or 2 nice meals. Everything was fresh, tasty, and well-made. I'll be ordering from here again.

    Great Lunch Buffet

    Hit this place up for a tasty filling lunch for just 12 bucks! There is a good variety of meats and veggies to suit all tastes and diets and even though it is a buffet, you still get very friendly and attentive seating, water, and special app (included) service. super delicious value in my book :)
