About Benares

Benares Indian Restaurant, located in Tribeca, NYC, offers contemporary authentic Indian Cuisine. We welcome you to come try our perfectly spiced vegetarian dishes, tandoori meats & lunch specials. Visit us with friends after work for our delicious cocktails and assortment of wines, beers, and spirits. Our diverse menu includes a wide variety of flavorful dishes for you to try in our comfortable, modern venue.

Chef Dhandu Ram, previously co-executive chef at Michelin-star restaurant Tulsi, is the head chef at Benares and specializes in Tandoori dishes. The menu is inspired by the western Indian state of UP (Utter Pradesh), home to the beautiful city of Benares. The city is widely known for its’ incredible vegetarian cuisines. For the menu, we have curated multiple exciting dishes, including a Kashmiri Soup of roasted turnip and beetroot, pigeon peas, fennel, ginger, garlic and cumin. However, although Benares is noted for its vegetarian cuisines, we have also curated incredible and aromatic seafood and meat dishes. This includes dishes like the Sevai Tomato Kurma (mussels, scallops, rock shrimp and crab claws tossed in a garlic tomato sauce over Indian style rice noodles) and the Tandoori Hen (whole Cornish hen marinated in lime, ginger, cumin, garlic and garam masala and cooked in the tandoor oven). No matter the occasion, company, or dietary restrictions, there is something at Benares for everyone to enjoy.

  • ”If you really want to try amazing Indian food, this is the place. We went here for dinner and it was very good and the service as well. I'm glad I tried it. Will definitely come back here again."-Carl R.
  • ”Favorite indian restaurant in NYC. Ask for spicy and they will deliver. Favorites include chili chicken, biryani, and chicken tikka. Their chicken is cooked well, flavorful. And their sauce does not skimp on the spices, this isn't watered down like most places. Highly recommend. I'm Indian, have had tons of Indian food before, this is actually good."-Calvin P.
