Benares Restaurant

12a Berkeley Square, LONDON, W1J 6BS

2 rosettes

Atul Kochhar's high-rolling Mayfair thoroughbred purrs with the sheen of a glitzy nightclub. Well-drilled staff take a serious approach, and Kochhar's crossover Anglo-Indian cooking always excites with its groundbreaking ideas, sharp technique and gorgeous presentation. Start with a lamb shami kebab and tandoori cutlet with mint and tamarind relish and baby radish for a palate-priming overture. Move on to South Indian seafood kofta balls in tomato and ginger sauce with poriyal vermicelli, or tandoori-spiced quail supreme with wild mushroom biryani, quail's egg and pineapple raita. The East-meets-West style concludes with a cheesecake-style rasmalai with chocolate ice cream, crunchy chocolate balls and ground pistachios.
