Used this restaurant when we stayed at the hotel, breakfast was always good except for our last morning when a buffet was set up, we were told the kitchen was closed & only what was on the buffet was available, then a group arrived, didn't fancy the buffet & proceeded to order from the kitchen, not too impressed by that....

The view of the Ganges from this restaurant is almost unbeatable. However, service was slow, food was very expensive and considering the price, portion sizes were quite small. The food was also bland, much better places for half the price.

Great view, good location right on the Ganges. Food was good. We had a veggie curry and Dahl. Not as spicy as we would've liked but still very tasty. Staff were helpful and service was great. Quite expensive though.

Visited here on the advice of our guide, who also ate with us. The only downside was we had to climb many, many flights of stairs to reach the restaurant. We found the menu had a wide variety of dishes and the food was very nice and tasty. We ate indoors as it was cooler, the view from the terrace... More

The restaurant offers good food and chai, and has an incredible view as it is on the roof top of the Rashmi Guest House. Situated on one of the ghats near the main ghat.

This was a nice escape from the madness of Varanasi. Fantastic views of the Ganges and also the Old Observatory. Food was good but didn’t know you could not get a cold beer at lunch time as they only serve drinks afternoon/night.
