Great view but unfriendly staff

The place has a great view of Ganga and very peaceful all the time. We had dinner and breakfast here as 3 friends since we stayed in Rashmi Guest House. You can find high variety of veg and non veg food. The food was pretty good and has a very reasonable price-we paid 700 Rs for 3 people. Beer... read more

We heard a lot of good reviews of the restaurant. So we went there. The first thing we noticed that we have to climb a lot to reach the roof-top restaurant as there is no lift. We were hungry till we reached the top :-) The menu was quite ok and we ordered simple north indian items. The sabji was... More

The food is not fantastic but acceptable , I couldn't find a restaurant in this town that is notable BUT climb the Everestine staircase to the top and as the sun sets enjoy a cold beer and the wonderful panorama of changing colours of the Ganges

View should be the first attraction than restaurant staffers. Food is above average and so the price.

Great food, fantastic views.. Good prices, and wifi reliable. Having dinner on the rooftop watching the Ganga and all the lights is truly remarkable, a great memory of our time in Varanasi

The view from the roof top restaurant is beautiful. The food quality is OK, but it's slightly over priced compared to other restaurants. Your bill doesn't include service charge unlike other restaurants in hotels, but the staff will indirectly ask you for tips.

The view is great and very peaceful after the ceremony. You can get beer at expensive price which is needed after the festival! Food was dreadful mutton sag had a very strange taste and very little meat, all bone. Chicken bhuna good flavour but chicken chewy and on bone also. Give it a miss unless your desperate.

Bit higher prices than other restaurants (owing to being above a nice hotel) but just the same food. We did have good service and the view is excellent.

Place is a good choice for sitting in outside terrace and enjoy the river/city view. It is indeed worth it. The food itself quit basic and I believe that is a bit overpriced for what you could find in Varanasi. At the same time the place itself is very well kept, dishes served as in a proper restaurant and they... More

We had a veg lunch here. The Kadhai paneer preparation was very good. Chinese items were also tasty. There is AC restaurant as well as outdoor seating area. The service was good. It was a clean place. It serves non-veg also.
