The welcome at Benares is warm, you are escorted from the ground floor to take a drink in their very cool bar with excellent cocktails and then handed over to the restaurant where you are yet again, very well looked after. The menu is very interesting with a ‘Classics’ section – Rogan Josh, Chicken Makhani and marinated Lamb Chops, to European dishes such as Roast Lamb on Sweet Potatoes with Chickpeas and the more contemporary Indian dishes for which it fames. It has a comprehensive Wine list, helpful Sommelier and incredibly attentive, friendly service. Nothing wrong, except for the prices. Main courses at £45 and tasting menus up to £143 would make even a Hedge Fund manager's eyes water. These are Mayfair expense account prices and if you are fortunate enough to have one then go, however, despite the unquestionably good food you can get a lot more bang for your buck elsewhere.
