Michelin starred Indian cuisine in the heart of Mayfair. Atul Kochhar’s unique talent as a twice Michelin starred chef has changed the way people perceive and experience Indian cuisine. Taking inspiration from his native India, while continuously researching regional dishes, Atul has managed to combine his heritage with his love of British ingredients to create a unique and innovative modern Indian cuisine. As the very first Indian chef to receive a Michelin star, accomplished during his tenure as Head Chef at Tamarind in 2001, he then went on to open the highly acclaimed Benares Restaurant & Bar for which he was awarded second Michelin star in 2007. Critic Jan Moir of the Daily Telegraph wrote, ‘Benares is notable for the outstanding quality of the ingredients that the kitchen uses and with the abundance with which they are served.”
Two Michelin star winning Atul Kocchar’s innotative Indian cuisine is catapulted to the fore here at Benares. It’s clear he knows his stuff with the short but sweet menu showcasing some of the most divine dishes; we liked the Benaresi Chaapein - grilled English lamb chops marinated in fennel, cardamom and black pepper with a kachumber salad. Clean and classic decor makes way for the food (whose prices reflect the Michelin star quality, of course, but you won’t be disappointed). As a little extra, Kocchar runs master classes so check for details regularly. You won’t want to miss out when he teams up with other chefs to offer something really spectacular.
