Sadly I cannot give this restaurant high review

We were recommended Ganga Fuji as it was near to our hotel and had free concert on certain nights. The concert was nice, we were seated upstairs. The proprietor is the main problem here,,,he is insecure, and has some good ideas (free concerts), though he try's to manipulate his customers... read more

Kailash the owner made our stay in Varanasi special with his wonderful veggie dishes, that don't have the usual ghee slick. He introduced us to Rahul from Streetwise Varanasi for a guided tour which was fabulous, and bought in special ingredients like ladyfinger and eggplant for our next day's meal. Not super cheap - but then what do you expect... More

The place is run by a dreadful man who not only bores you witless with his hyperbolic descriptions of how he cooks his actually very ordinary food, but also charges ridiculous prices. Really ridiculous. My advice is don't go near the place. It will leave you feeling cheated, foolish and worse, still hungry!

So happy we stumbled upon this place! Don't usually write reviews but this place definitely deserves one. Third day staying in Varanasi and this has been by far the best! Couldn't have asked for better food or service. Real home style Indian cooking in a clean, comfortable setting. From coffee and breakfast to dinner and dessert they know how it's... More

We decided to try this place out because we stayed at their guest house. It was the best meal we had in Varanasi or probably India all together! Kailash sat down and offered to make a family style meal costum to our tastes. Every single thing was outstanding! He also ordered the perfect amount of food so we were satisfied... More

We had read such amazing reviews about this restaurant so the expectations were sky high when we entered but seeing nobody else in the restaurant made us a bit apprehensive! My mother told me to leave but I insisted to stay and eat here only. That was the biggest mistake of our Varanasi trip! The food was simply inedible and... More
