Went there for lunch. Even though they were not busy, the service was very slow. It took us a long time to get someone to come take our order. The hot food items, when they arrived, were already cold and the portions were really small. Would not recommend this establishment.

After finishing our sightseeing of temples in Varanasi on 11th March 2015 and on our way to a Silk Emporium, we were looking for a good restaurant for quick lunch and our Driver took us to Chrystal Bowl which is situated on the main road. Though its address shows Assi Ghat but it is on one corner of the Assi... More

One of our two favorite restaurants in Varanasi having tried a lot over a period of 5 days. The thalis are really good and varied especially the Maharajah. Helpful staff that made various changes to the order eg no sugar in drinks and got it right. Clearly a local hangout who bodes well. Strongly recommend and right around the corner... More

For the first time I witnessed a Vegetarian Chinese restaurant. The experience was outstanding and so was the food. I had ordered fired rice with spinach and mushroom and stir fired vegetables in black bean sauce. The quantity as well as the quality was quite good for the price. The price is a little high but the quality makes up... More

The reviews on tripadvisor are right. The restaurant is nice and the food amazing. They have a really big carte. There were also other Indian people. The service was ok but a bit cold. It doesn't matter because the food is so delicious.

A bit further from our hotel. But well worth the tuk tuk ride. The food here is completely vegetarian with selections from around the world. But the true beauty is the indian food. Absolutely delicious . We went for lunch and had the Thali's then the next day went for dinner. And ordered a variety of dishes. When in Varanasi... More

We took some accidental not-so-scenic detours on the way to this restaurant, but were so pleased we found it. The food was delicious! We were the only westerners in the restaurant which clearly catered to the business-folk of Varanasi. They made the best naan I've ever tasted and the kadhi paneer was rich and spicy. The service was 5 star.... More
