Chef Dhandu Ram, previously co-executive chef at Michelin-star restaurant Tulsi, is the head chef at Benares and specializes in Tandoori dishes. The menu is inspired by the western Indian state of UP (Utter Pradesh), home to the beautiful city of Benares. The city is widely known for its’ incredible vegetarian cuisines. For the menu, we have curated multiple exciting dishes, including a Kashmiri Soup of roasted turnip and beetroot, pigeon peas, fennel, ginger, garlic and cumin. However, although Benares is noted for its vegetarian cuisines, we have also curated incredible and aromatic seafood and meat dishes. This includes dishes like the Sevai Tomato Kurma (mussels, scallops, rock shrimp and crab claws tossed in a garlic tomato sauce over Indian style rice noodles) and the Tandoori Hen (whole Cornish hen marinated in lime, ginger, cumin, garlic and garam masala and cooked in the tandoor oven). No matter the occasion, company, or dietary restrictions, there is something at Benares for everyone to enjoy.
