Very good food and a nice shop downstairs

This restaurant has a nice selection of western food, if that is what you are in the market for, but it also has traditional Indian dishes. The service was very prompt and attentive even though our group was quite large, about 10 people. They made it a point to make sure everyone was happy. The... read more

This place was lovely. The food was to die for! I had iced green tea with lemon pancakes and fruit. The fruit even came with this lemon creme stuff for dipping which put all fruit salads to shame. The shop downstairs has great stuff at very reasonable prices. Service was excellent and the environment was very relaxing.

Suggested by a friend of mine and when I myself tasted, it was the yummiest ice cream i ever had. Also had double choclate cake. It was nice. I strongly recommend Super Sundae if you are going to give a visit.

Located just back from the banks of the Ganges, Aum Cafe is a lovely quiet spot to escape from the hustle and bustle of the ghats. The owner is a lovely lady, and the service is great. The menu has a good variety of healthy and delicious food.

One of the healthiest options in Varanasi. The bread that comes with the soup was amazing (the best we've had in India). We ordered 4 more to go. The soup and salad were a bit bland, but the burrito is good and the carrot cake is devine.

The service was good and the food came out very quickly. While the food is healthy, it's all quite bland, and definitely nothing to write home about. This place has great potential but they need to get a bit more creative with their dishes.

The place was nice, clean, and service was good. The food I have to say wasn't amazing, but still decent. I was just a little bit disappointed because I was expecting the same quality as the Brown Bread Bakery, which by the way, was excellent. Still a good experience overall.

Love this little hippie rooftop restaurant in Varanasi, where everyone shares their table so everyone can enjoy the amazing food. We really liked the lassis, as well as the lemon pancakes. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone!
