While I wouldn't make an effort to dine at the restaurant (functional), the food is always great. As a curry lover I find Vanerasi Chefs a cut above the rest in this price range. If you want a down and dirty curry that just packs...More

Interesting menu and incredibly informative friendly staff. Food was excellent and portion size more than adequate. Went with a friend who is something of an Indian cuisine expert who declared Varanasi among the best he had experienced. Good prices too

I cannot understand how this place has such a good star rating. We ordered a takeaway based on the glowing reviews and were sorely disappointed. The food took over an hour to arrive and when it did it was cold and horrible. The palak paneer...More

One of the leading Indian Takeaway & Dine In Restaurants in Battersea, SW11 3JR. We offer the varied delicious tastes and cuisines of India, from homes, wayside stalls and palaces presented in style, retaining its authentic nature. REAL Indian cuisine - which is the specialty of the Varanasi Chefs - is distinctive. It is exotic, aromatic and flavourful, relying on a subtle blend of herbs and spices, and provides an interesting contrast with Curries - the sauce based foods, Chats - the Indian street foods and with Tandoori- the clay oven foods
