Lunch at Benares was a very enjoyable experience. It began with the welcome on the ground floor. I have had better welcomes on previous visits but this went the through the processes, although the usual warmth was sadly lacking. We were shown to our table in the corner, which gave a very good view of the restaurant. The decor is very restful and the use of dark wood and light walls makes it feel very homely and relaxing. We chose to have the platter menu. My meat platter offered 3 different types of meat. An excellent soup served along with pilau rice and naan. It was very good and quite filling. My partner chose the fish platter and I am told that of the 3 different fish offerings the sea bass was quite wonderful. We both enjoyed a rose petal flavoured desert. It was very subtle in flavour, light and delicious. The bill with the addition of a very good mango lassi and mineral water was less than £40 each, including service. Overall a very good experience to be repeated before too long. They just need to fix the welcoming.
