So break out the best cutlery and the luxury tableware and order some exquisite dishes straight to your door.
For the most upmarket Friday-night Indian takeaway, order from Benares – its authentic yet innovative Indian fare is ranked as some of the best in London. Using fresh and seasonal British ingredients to create a fine-dining experience from home, order aloo tikki chaat, prawn kasundi, and its delicious biryani with a selection of sides and condiments via the Supper or Deliveroo apps, or click and collect at the restaurant via the Order Swift app. It’s available from Monday to Saturday, 12-9pm, and for every meal ordered, Benares will donate one meal to an NHS worker in the local area.
Known for its Basque-influence open wood fire cooking, Michelin-starred Brat’s rustic Spanish fare is now available for collection from the restaurant for you to take home.
