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.

Excellent restaurant, second time here, service, ambience and atmosphere was excellent food was let down by the main course chicken arriving 'pink' ie undercooked - it's a shame as expectations are much higher when experiencing dining in a Michelin restaurant.
This was rectified by the staff with little fuss and an apology.
