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.

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.

    Really excellent food. Outstanding flavours. Waitress, possibly new, was a little uncertain. Manager very pleasant.

    Delicious meal and amazing value for money!

    We went for the 3 course menu with a Champagne cocktail, which also included an amuse bouche, sides for the main, and a few chocolates at the end. As there were 4 of us we got to try a variety of the dishes. The highlights of the meal were the guinea fowl starter and the coconut panna cotta dessert, although it was all incredible. We never felt rushed and staff were attentive and engaging.

    I will definitely go back.

    We had a very enjoyable lunch, service was friendly but not quite perfect, we arrived slightly late for our booking but were not offered our arrival cocktail , we did have it but after lunch. The food was tasty and very nicely presented.

    Outstanding and incredible Indian haute cuisine. How can I eat at a regular Indian ever restaurant again?? This restaurant sets a standard equivalent to the best I have dined at.
    Staff are knowledgeable, friendly and totally professional. They could not be faulted in any respect and are a credit to the restaurant. In fact, I would venture to say that they make the difference between a good restaurant and an outstanding one. Well done to management for selecting and training such an impressive team!
