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 is designed by Atul Kochhar, 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 at this Atul Kochhar restaurant, 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.
