Awarded a Michelin star, Benares brings the excitement and vibrancy of Indian cuisine to a chic, elegant setting in Mayfair, central London. The menu of bold spices and superb textures at Benares evokes the true essence of Indian cooking, and has won widespread acclaim from the Evening Standard and BBC Good Food Magazine.

The Indian subcontinent is fully explored in the Benares menu. All lamb and chicken is Halal, and many complementing exotic ingredients are encompassed, ranging from spice rubbed Romney Marsh lamb cannon with white aubergine purée and artichoke Fritters, to hearty vegetarian options like pea and lentil cakes with warm cauliflower purée and asparagus stir-fry. A number of dining options are available, from the a la carte menu, to Benares sharing platters and pre-theatre set menus.

A cooling but bold dessert menu is served at Benares restaurant, with rose bhapa doi, hibiscus sorbet and fresh raspberries a popular choice. An extensive wine list is also available, with expert recommendations by a sommelier to accompany key dishes. An inventive, tantalising cocktail menu is showcased at Benares in London, with options like the trademark zingy passion fruit chutney martini.

Combining vibrancy and elegant restraint, Benares in Mayfair offers diners Chef’s Table seating with full views of the kitchen. Private dining is also available with seating for up to 34 people. Green Park Tube Station is a 5-minute walk from Benares.

    A very good dining experience. We went for lunch and had the set lunch menu. This was good value and although the choice was limited we both still found something to eat . I thought the food was excellent. Full of flavour with lots of different ingredients in each dish.

    As usual, the evening and everything about it was faultless in virtually every way. The only niggle was the waiter forgot to get our bill when we first asked for it so were delayed a few minutes, but that is a small issue compared to the overall brilliance of the evening.

    Excellent service and good food. Too pricey but acceptable.

    impeccable service. food presentation on point. flavours could be more authentic to suit our Indian palate. I felt the food flavour wasn't catered for Indians. we like it authentic and flavoursome.

    We had a lovely dinner at Benares on the set deal. The champagne cocktail is extremely nice and very moreish. Definitely one to try again. We were treated like royalty and the food was all really excellent. Definitely recommend Benares for a classy Indian meal.
