Sitar at 7.30 pm was good. There were no menus to be seen when we arrived. The manager came up and said it was 500 R per head for veg and 700 R for chicken to be added. The food was OK but these are joke prices, over double you would pay elsewhere. When we left we spotted a menu... More

We ate once here, were talked into ordering what the owner wanted us to have but we were happy to be and trusted his judgement. We were certainly not disapointed by the quality of the food but a little by the quantity and very disapointed to be totally ripped off on beers! This guy will charge for a can of... More

Checked the tripadvisor reviews of the place just a tad too late. After having visited the place.... Well, my bad. The food was suggested by the owner. We wanted something small and light and decided to share. Food was ok but the bill..... A total rip-off. 1000 rupees for a dinner for 2 (just the main dish and tea)? Come... More

I'm not kidding when I say this is the best restaurant I ate at in India. We were welcomed so warmly by gentle live Indian music and then we were treated to an exquisite explanation of our food that made our mouths water. You must go here!! The food was not at all oily like some Indian food can be... More

I noticed that the flyer says 'Highly Recomended By Lonely Planet' (Spelling as per the flyer). In fact when I checked the Ganga Fuji Restaurant is not mentioned in Lonely Planet at all. So there is... More

Service and quality here is excellent - the owner if a very friendly and nice man who came to sit with me and ask me what sort of food I would like, made some suggestions and had a small chat. I had the Kashmiri veg curry which was to die for. One of the tastiest things I've ever eaten to... More

The food was so good that we got 2nds of everything and the price was very reasonable. Will be back to Varanasi in 2 months and going to go back again. He even offered to show us the kitchen...
