Welcome to Madrid
The cuisine in this restaurant in the Chamberí neighbourhood is by the famous chef, Atul Kochhar, the first Indian chef in the world to be awarded a Michelin star.
Benares’ cuisine stands out for its fusion of Spanish produce with typically Indian culinary techniques, such as the use of the tandoor oven to prepare dishes like the classic chicken tandoori Old Delhi style or monkfish with crab croquettes. On the other hand, the Indian coal grill is used for specialities such as grilled scallops with cauliflower textures or grilled large red prawns in moilee sauce.
Benares occupies a surface area of 375 square metres with a dining room, open show-kitchen, bar area with a ‘casual’ menu and cocktails, gardened patio and a chef’s table for 6 people which is available with a prior reservation.
