I've been to Benares twice now, with a friend and with my parents and both times, its not displeased me at all. Service is well timed and pleasant and there is an air of groomed professionalism about the staff that is quite refreshing. With delicious fish dishes such as the coconut seabass, you can see why in such a short time it has gained Michellin star status. The menu does let down a little on desserts but by the time you have gone through your tasty starter and main course it is a small if not unoticed complaint. the staff also go the extra mile to explain dishes carefully and pick up on reasons for dining. We were rather surprised when the waiter came out with a dessert finished with a sparkler, during my visit with my parents, only to learn he had overheard it was their anniversary. Rather sweet. The decor and style of the restaurant is quite glamorous too in black and white and although stark at first grows on you. Only little snag I noticed is the noise levels do get a little high at times, something to do with the acoustics but by no means a limiter to your experience.
