This place is quite close to Assi Ghat, but away from the River Ganga. It's not cheap compared with street food or small dhaba-style places but the vegetarian food is definitely a class above. It's popular with middle-class Indian families but table are usually available. The menu is extensive.

One of the most delicious thali I ever had, all the small dishes inside tasted excellent, a bit expensive ( about 200 rupi) but wroth it!

Clean and friendly, filled with locals. The veg thali was amazing. We always try to look for "authentic" local cuisine, and this place delivered. We were the only non Indian people in the room, and the place was jam packed. Don't let the large menu that includes pizza and pasta discourage you. Just go straight to the part with the... More

We came on recommendation of our guest house owner and weren't disappointed. It was very busy but worth waiting for. We chose a Thali, which is a taster selection of different curries, we ordered one each which was far too much and we were unable to finish them, top tip, share one. It was delicious though. Service was good too.

In our search for the best Thali in Varanasi this ranks high up there. The veg curry was tasty and the right level of spicy, the shahi paneer tasty not too heavy and we tried butter daal here for our first time. It was delicious (heavy of course). The clientele was mainly locals which was also a good sign -... More

We ate here at the suggestion of our local guide who assured us that the food was excellent and that it was very popular with people who live in Varanasi - ie not a tourist haunt. He was absolutely right, our lunch was excellent - very tasty food (vegetable biryani, Dahl, naan), swift and attentive service (we had an early... More

Located on a very quite and lone location near the Assi Ghat road. The ambiance is just perfect for a nice meal with friends or family. The food is very nice and very well priced. Credit Card accepted. Staff very cooperative and nice.
