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.

    Absolutely divine cocktails, we had the green spice and passion fruit cocktails and they were amazing. Delicious food, all brilliantly presented and didn't have to wait at all. The service was exceptional, the waiters were on hand, quick to bring drinks, knew all the ingredients in the dishes. We sat in the bar area and the atmosphere was brilliant.

    Really lovely lunch. Service was amazing - they looked after us very well. Everything we ate was delicious. Excellent attention to detail with food intolerances - I was dining with someone who needed everything to be gluten free. They took a lot of care to make sure this was catered for. Will definitely be returning.

    Great service and food.

  • (**** 22 March 2019 by Selena from London

    Terrible service, food was nice enough but probably not justified for the price or experience
    Mocktails at £10 a pop is ridiculous since it’s no diff to others
