At 1930h, went there for dinner. Had spaghetti, Briyani with chicken, and also Phad Thai (beehoon). Food took a while to cook, but the chef was very sincere, and whipped up pretty good stuff. Above expectations in this secluded restaurant in the back alleys.

The Brown Bread Bakery served as our home away from home while we were in Varanasi. Oveverall, a great choice. The food was excellent, the service (particularly the manager) was first rate, and the evening music was incredible. We followed advice of the Lonely Planet anid booked our Ganges River boat tours (one evening and one in the morning) through... More

Love this place. We booked the boat trip for sunrise with a hot coffee and breakfast! Each time we go there i feel like taking a biiiiig break from Varanasi. Dinner by candel light, overlooking the river and city with a cold drink in my hand, just great. But take care, there are other restaurants (one just next door) claiming... More

My friend and me came here twice and we loved it. It really is like a time out from India. We ate some bread and cheese - which was of course not like in Europe but pretty close to it. The rooftop restaurant is nicely set up and the view over the town is good. Everything is a bit pricy... More

(why not make a limited menu for low season then)? ok, need to wait half an hour even though no other customers. it's... More

We went on low season, so it was a little sad, it most be nicer when there is more movement. They were missing a lot of ingredients. The view is not the best. The food was fine.

Located in alley way back from river in old Varanasi. Excellent menu and great food. Head up the stairs to roof top or one of the rooms on the way up for great atmosphere

Their menu offers a lot of choices but... We went there on an election day and the majority of places in the city were closed and it's low season...so that might be why they haven't some of the main courses, cheeses and banana from their menu ? Around 4p.m., in May quite hot on the charming rooftop, nice view. The... More

this place got such a lovely rooftop and i can´t complain about the food either but be prepared to wait at least 20 min for your coffee/ tea and 1 hour for your food even there are only 2 other guest. I have been here 3 times during my stay and even if they brought you what you have ordered... More

Great seating cushions at low tables, great cheese and bread (not like the thin sugary bread u often get in india) did feel a little enclosed, no windows, but good atmosphere and people.
