Best Place in Varanasi to Eat!!

Lotus Lounge is a best place to eat in Varanasi, with a good view of the Ganges. I ate thai curry and momos also, everything was great. The service was really good with friendly staff . Try this place.

I've been here a couple of times. The place has a very nice view and it's one of the better places to actually relax, since most places don't have such a relaxing lounge. The food is good but more expensive then most other places, it's also of a somewhat higher quality. The staff is very friendly. Worth a try, to... More

Loved this place. A full and varied menu. Orders taken promptly and drinks served straight away. Nice fresh food you can see being cooked through a little hatch. Food was plentiful and tasty. Free fast wifi. A great place to eat and relax. The whole place including the toilets was very clean.

Varanasi doesn't seem to offer that much in terms of gastronomic delights, but we ate at the Lotus Lounge a couple of times (for breakfast and dinner) and it was pretty good. It's got a nice chilled atmosphere and a solid view of the wide Ganges flowing past. The menu has a mix of international dishes (from pasta to Thai... More

Loved the location, just superb. Food great, enjoyed. I very stupidly left my (very expensive) Smartphone. Went back when I realised - the staff had found it and management had locked it securely away. My fault however I was grateful for the honesty - it had all my contacts/e-mails/photos. Management said a tip was unnecessary....absolutely I left one anyway

Lotus Lounge is a small restaurant that sits next to the Ganges. The views are fantastic and the soft mattresses on the floor mean you can spend some time relaxing here. The food is delicious and caters for international and local tastes. The restaurant even offers free wi-fi.

This place is perfect to chill after wandering in the little streets of Varanasi or after the boat ride. After trying other rooftops in town, this one with the comfortable beds is definitely the best one! Great service, great view, free WiFi, really quiet = perfect! Ps very good ice tea and Nutella pancake

We ate at Lotus Restaurant and it was really nice. When I told the owner that I love baked potatoes he gave me an extra big portion. Both local and international dishes were good and the view over the Ganges River is great. Also, it was a very hygienic place.
