Best View in Town!

We stayed in Varanasi for two nights and tried a few different rooftop restaurants. The Sheenu by far had the best view. Located just north of the Meer Ghat and situated on a point so you can see the entire city line. The food was nothing to write home about, but it was still one of our better... read more

We had a dinner and break fast here. Service was very good. Food was also good but there is a chance of improvement on taste. The alu parantha in the breakfast was served without curd and pickle. Which was unexpected. And the taste was also just okay.

Each morning, even though we stayed nearby and one night in Ganpati GH, we had breakfast here on the roof top restaurant. Open air, watching the sun rise, oars boats out, oar boats return, passengers on boats feeding the birds, daily life of pilgrims in Varanasi. The wait staff arrives about 730am they offer menus, folks take turns giving their... More

The terrace has one of the best views in the city. One can overlook the ghats and the Ganges. We had dinner there around sunset so the atmosphere was superb. I cannot say the same about the food and especially not about the service. The paneer masala was average the rice was partly undercooked and some of the small bowls... More

I tried the Special Thali (it's two veg curries as opposed to one, which is the normal curry). The veg curry is delicious and served piping hot. The dal also yummy. It also comes with a paneer curry, a pappad/popadom and two chappatis, and the usual plate of curd. Very tasty, filling meal - only 150 rupees!

We visited Sheenu restaurant after dark for a quick meal. It was quiet that evening and we did not encounter too many of the guests who were staying at Ganpati. Staff were friendly, and prices were very reasonable. Food was average - you can probably find better elsewhere in the city.

Take a break from your wanderings here; best view, great food, and wonderful staff!!! Enjoy some good food and refreshment, savor the incredible view, and...most importantly, share good times with the friendly staff and interesting patrons at Sheenu (above Ganpati GH, Meer Ghat)!!!

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
