Good food and sitar ragas

Good food and drink is served in a speakeasy atmosphere (although the temple area of Varanasi is dry).

We had dinner in this place twice in two days. The restaurant is cozy, we followed the host's tips without focusing on the prices, and everything was delicious. To be fair, prices are little higher than other places around, however quality is very good and converted in euro or dollar...it is definitely worth.

I agree with most of the reviews here. The owner is great and takes the time to make recommendations and explain the preparation. The food was all delicious and get pricey if you get meat dishes. But if stick to veg, it's a decent price for the quality. Also, live sitar and tabla music was a great way to finish... More

Worth a try while you are in Varanassi. The owner was very passionate about his home cooked food and the live entertainment added to the atmosphere.

The food is very nice and so is the music but its one of the most expensive places Ive eaten at in India, but I guess that its the quality that makes it so. If youre unsure on what to take, ask Khalas, he will have a suggestion ready for you.

We visited Ganga Fuji based on a recommendation in the Rough Guide. The food was nice and the owner explained in detail the method for cooking each dish. Based on this we chose to eat his recommended dishes. The food was good, lightly spiced and tasty. However, the cost was quite high for what basically amounted to two Thali. Compared... More

Really great place, we went four times. Take the owner's recommendations and you will not be disappointed. He made us special food that wasn't on the menu and got hold of a special Indian spice for me and gave me a recipe to use it in. The concert at 7.30pm every evening is pretty weird and wonderful, well worth poking... More
