We stayed at the Ganpati Guest House, so we decided to try the restaurant out of convenience, and ended up eating there several times. On the first occasion, we had lunch and wanted to be out of the sun, so we opted for tables one level below the rooftop. We had rice, plain dal (just okay), mixed vegetable curry (good)... More

Food had no flavor and no spice. Some of it tasted like out of a can. Massalla Tea was ok and staff was friendly, thats it. Not "Real Indian", maybe more for tourists.

great little café, the waiter brings you a pad and pen and gets you to write your order; great way to get exactly what you want! Excellent value and excellent food. If you fancying something a bit less spicy you can order finger chips, omelette etc. The veg Thali is also pretty good!

I love being up high. I'll gladly pay a premium to eat or drink on top of a building any day of the week. The good news is that this is India and you don't even have to pay that much. Was here at sunset and enjoyed a slow dinner while the sun went down. Staffs were very friendly and... More

We ate here several times as we were staying in the Guest House. The view is amazing and the staff never rushed us. The banana honey pancake at breakfast was lovely and the curries we tried were all good. It's vegetarian with a good range of choices including lighter omelette type options and also serves Kingfisher beer. The atmosphere in... More

Well worth a visit. Attentive, friendly staff. Good sized portions which were very tasty. Possibly the best Chocolate banana pancakes of my India trip. (I speak from experience!). View of Ganges fantastic. Worth finding and the climb up.

It's all about the location - what a view! We don't always eat where we are staying but with good food, great service and a fantastic view why wouldn't you? We met quite a few others who obviously agreed although staying elsewhere. Cheap and cheerful and if you ask nicely they will find you a discreet beer too....

My husband and I stayed at the Ganpati Guest House and ate many of our meals here. We found the food to be a good mixture of Indian and Western, and the meal servings were very generous for such a cheap price. The food is definitely not posh nosh - but it is cheap and tasty. My husband became addicted... More

We stayed at Ganpati Guest House, so we enjoyed both breakfasts and dinners here. The food was great, and the service was always with a smile and good humor. The only improvement I would suggest is to be able to charge meals to the Ganpati room. Having to pay directly for each meal was inconvenient and inconsistent with other hotels.
