Michelin-starred restaurant, Benares, led by Chef Patron Atul Kochhar, is based in the upscale Mayfair neighbourhood of central London. Capturing the spirit and uplifting essence of its namesake city in Northern India, the restaurant exudes the beauty and vibrancy of the 'city of lights' while leaving a lasting impression with its striking contemporary design.
Chef Atul's acclaimed menu explores dishes from all over India, influenced by his regular trips to his native country, while maintaining a subtle undertone of European cuisine. Atul's experiences and passion for revolutionising traditional Indian dishes inspired him to create a delicately spiced and uniquely flavoured menu.
Atul Kochhar, first ever Indian chef to win a Michelin star, the interior is just striking, with discrete lighting, lily ponds and highly trained staff that appear as if by magic. Benares has held a Michelin star since 2007.
