Michelin starred restaurant, Benares, led by Executive Chef Sameer Taneja, is based in the upscale Mayfair neighbourhood of central London. Capturing the spiritual 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.

Benares consists of a lounge and the main dining area, which are lavished with hand crafted Indian furniture and complemented by a beautiful pond decorated with fresh flowers, creating a luxurious aesthetic experience. Bordering the lounge area are three private dining rooms; the Berkeley Room which seats up to sixteen guests, the Sommeliers Table which seats up to ten guests and a state-of-the-art Chefs Table which seats up to six guests.

The lounge area leads into the main dining room which can accommodate up to eighty diners, off of which the largest private dining room, the Dover Room which can seat thirty-four guests, is situated.

Sameer Taneja is Executive Chef at Benares, London’s trail blazing Michelin-starred Indian restaurant in Mayfair. Using his classical training in French and Indian cuisine and 20 years’ experience working alongside some of the world’s best chefs, Sameer’s culinary style pairs high quality British ingredients with authentic Indian spices and techniques.

Sameer re-joined the restaurant in 2019. Under the leadership of Sameer, Benares regained its Michelin star in 2021 and has successfully retained for a consecutive year.

Benares can be hired for exclusive events such as corporate functions, product launches and personal celebrations, tailoring each event to the needs of the client to ensure an exceptional experience. Able to accommodate 100 guests for a sit-down dinner, or 350 guests for a standing reception, Sameer will personally design a menu for the occasion while our Events Team is available to assist with any special requirements.
