We had takeaway from Varanasi Chef last night and it was superb! The food tasted fresh and flavoursome and arrived very hot. Would thoroughly recommend

This is a first class restaurant, the cooking is fresh and more imaginative than your average Indian restaurant. We have become regulars and are never disappointed. Do not be put off by the rather unsalubrious surroundings of Battersea High Street.

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

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
