Benares Restaurant and Bar since its opening in 2003 has been considered one of the finest Indian Restaurants in the city.
Guests enter an elegant lounge with hand-crafted India inspired furniture and is complemented by a beautiful pond decorated with fresh flowers, creating a luxurious aesthetic.
Benares has 4 private dining rooms, three of which are around the lounge: the Berkeley Room which seats up to 16 guests, the Sommeliers Table which seats up to 10 guests and a Chefs Table overlooking the kitchen which seats up to 8 guests. The lounge area leads into the main dining room which can accommodate up to 80 guests. Our largest private dining area, the Dover room seating up to 36 guests is on the other side of the main dining room.
Benares can be hired for exclusive events accommodating 100 guests for a sit-down dinner and 250 guests for a standing reception.

Wine by the Glass
Sommelier's Selection By the Glass
Ground-breaking technology is ensuring Benares customers can now enjoy fine wines by the glass. The Coravin™ technique allows wine to be enjoyed whilst the cork is left in place. A thin hollow needle passes through the cork to access the wine whilst safeguarding it from oxidation. The Coravin™ truly makes great wines more accessible, allowing you to taste some of the finest selections of wines from our cellar, by the glass
