Did find Benares through Tripadvisor. Easy to locate in the heart of Oslo city center. Few tables occupied when I arrived at 21:00. Very polite and service minded waitress showed me to the table. Indian beer TAG and papadums was served right away with three...types of relish. I ordered the mixed grill plate. Perfect medium spicy and very tasty, large portions of all. Shrimps were amazing. Served with the best nan bread I have tasted. If you like Indian food this is the place.More

By far my favourite restaurant in Oslo! Was recommended to me by a friend from India and was definitely not disappointed. My husband and I have been there at least 8 times since we moved to Norway.The service is always great, the staff always very...friendly, the food is amazing, every time, and you get your food in no time!More

I moved to Oslo three years ago. My husband and I love going there. Their menu has a wide-range of choices. My husband is vegan and I love curry, and this restaurant accommodates us both. :) One thing we love is the unlimited rice and...the sauces that they give before meal. They are amazing. The atmosphere is also very classy and relaxing.More

The lamb was very tasty and crisp! We enjoyed it very much. The employers were also polite. Only negative was that we didnt get the menu in English so it was harder to decide what to eat.

In the picture is Royal Beef which I totally recommend to everyone! They serve royal chicken or royal lamb as well. Choose one and give it a try! You will not regret! I've tried also other dishes as mango chicken and buttered chicken and they...was very tasty as well! These chefs use some amazing secrets on cooking their recipes. They are totally different (in good way) than all other restaurants in Oslo!More
