Indian Restaurant in Mayfair
Bindas Eatery is a bright and homely Indian restaurant in Mayfair serving incredible food with influences from Punjab, Mumbai, Delhi, Kerala and Jaipur.
Owner, Mehak Kansal, won the prestigious 2018 Westfield Food Entrepreneur Award and mentorship from Tapas Revolution’s Omar Allibhoy. After receiving high praise after her pop up at Westfield in White City in 2019, the idea for Bindas Eatery was born. Bindas means relaxed, carefree, and daring which is a great way to describe this restaurant.
The decor pays homage to the wilderness and vibrancy of India with bright coloured parrots catching your eye immediately. The neon sign at the back of the restaurant is a clever play on a popular song and the colourful mural of foliage and elephants is simply gorgeous.

What an amazing experience at Bindas Eatery Indian restaurant in Mayfair from beginning to end. The dishes were exceptional and the level of service matched the high standard of the food.
