  • “I'm a big Indian food fan and Benares didn't disappoint me. I'm always wary of chain restaurants, mainly due to inconsistency in cooking and sometimes less quality in overall delivery. I ordered the combo special with chicken tikka masala. The portion was enough for one person especially since you get a choice of appetizer and bread. I requested white meat only for the chicken and that's exactly what I got. The sauce could've been less watery but the taste was on point and not greasy. Will be ordering from here again. ”

  • “The appetizer that comes with the "Combo Special" is a joke. You're lucky if you get two bites out of it. That, and the delivery service has been getting very sloppy lately. Recently, my food delivery came with the raita sauce spilled all over the order. When I called to complain, the restaurant offered only to re-send the raita. When the second delivery arrived, the raita was again spilled out all over the bag. The restaurant offered a weak apology and said I'd have better luck next time. Sorry Baluchi's but there won't be a "next time."”

  • “If you're hungry don't order from here. Plain and simple. Their delivery estimates are wrong. It generally takes 15 to 20 minutes longer than the estimate. If you call to complain they'll tell you you're only slowing down your order by calling. Food is pretty good but with such bad customer service I'd go elsewhere.”

  • “ Why is this place so highly rated? The chicken dishes cooked in the tandoor are dry and chewy. The curries are drowned in oil and over spiced, this is an at best average typical Indian restaurant. Only the lamb saagwala is acceptable, the Choley and vindaloo were swimming in oil.”
