Went to Benares for a birthday treat, having watched the rise to fame of Atul & always thinking that whatever he cooks it always looks highly delicious.
I went with my husband & it was a meal of 2 halves. His was fabulous, mine was not (not really fair since it was my birthday & it was me who had always wanted to go there).
My husband had scallops & then lobster …both delicious…I had 2 signature dishes…Chicken Tikka pie (dry & not very tasty at all ..very disappointing) then cod fillet in a sauce which was so salty I found it unpleasant. We had 2 side dishes..1 plain rice & 1 potatoes with spring onions which was the best thing on the plate for me!
We had 2 glasses of wine each & 2 bottles of water, no dessert & no coffee & the bill was £208.00!!! For a curry!
On the other hand ..the staff were probably the most attentive I've vere come accross…from the hat check girl to the sommelier…all were absolutely lovely. Soooo the place is nice, the staff are lovely & sometime the food is great & sometimes it aint!…but it's a bit stripey in the price department!
