As we said before, Benares London is perfect for any occasion. With four separate dining rooms, you can select from the chef’s table, sommelier’s table, the Berkeley room and the Dover room. The chef’s table room is designed for private dining experiences and offers guests the chance to overlook the kitchen and meet the team. You can select from the a la carte or tasting menus, with matched wines available as well. If wine is your passion though, then the sommelier’s table is for you. An intimate space for ten, Michelin-starred dishes are carefully matched here to exquisite wines. The room is enclosed within the cellar and you’ll have your own personal Benares Mayfair sommelier to guide you through each drop. Perfection, wouldn’t you say?
The last two rooms are designed for larger groups, and both are beautifully decorated to create a truly unforgettable dining experience. The restaurant's lounge is also ideal for relaxing in with a cocktail before or after your meal. Now of course, it’s time to take a gander at the dishes from Benares London. We recommend starting your culinary journey with starters such as the jal tarang pan-seared scallops with spiced sesame butter; karara kekda crispy soft shell crab with green papaya relish and a turmeric and mango dressing; and the khargosh guntur masala of chargrilled rabbit in Andhra spices with pickled baby carrot and confit plums.
For the main event, you don’t want to miss the lobster biryani with samphire, pink peppercorns and fennel raita; the duck varuval made with roasted Barbary duck, spelt pulao, spiced jus and fermented spring vegetables; or the mouth-watering changezi chaapein smoked tandoori lamb cutlets served with sauteed mangetouts and a rogan sauce. Located on Berkeley Square in Mayfair, Benares London is a Michelin-starred Indian dining experience that’s not to be missed. Book now!
