About Benja

Benja restaurant in London's historic and thriving Carnaby district welcomes you royally to three floors of exquisite royal Thai cuisine. The elegant, up-to-the-minute décor incorporates the five polychrome theme colours using works of Thai art, natural materials, and contemporary luxe details. The lower ground houses the chic Naga bar, while ground and first are reserved for enjoying a menu prepared by ML Kwantip, whose family provided chefs for Thai royalty for generations. Don't miss the choo-chee curry with roasted duck and seedless grapes or the grilled lamb wrapped in cha-plu leaves. Trad Thai puds like pumpkin custard and black sticky rice pudding with taro jam complete your meal. The cool, serene Benja provides a cultured oasis in the capital.
