My boyfriend and I ate here last night and thoroughly enjoyed it. Fantastic food (the taste of the lamb was incredible!), really authentic and delicious. The staff were hospitable and the manager was particularly friendly and helpful. Make sure you book, this place is always full on a weekend!

We walked ain Battersea Square looking for a good restaurant. An Indian restaurant named Varanasi Chefs caught our attention and we went in. The place was small but well furnished, with decorative décor that tried to some small extent emulate the opulence of the Maharajahs. We had been to India and Varanasi and tasted their several cuisines and were curious... More

Not going to lie, Manzils in Birmingham is the best I have had close to home. And by that I mean the best from Reading to Battersea. Fantastic food and fantastic service. Read more of my reviews and you will see I can be harsh to bad Indian food. This place doesn't do bad.

We've been to Varanasi twice and were very happy both times. Very tasty food, generous portions, attentive stuff, not expensive. Also they don't add 12.5% service charge automatically so you pay what you think is fair, which is yet another plus. We will definitely go back and will also try the home delivery.

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
