I enjoyed this place so much. Food is excellent and fresh. Probably my favourite restaurant in varanasi. The owner is a very good person. Very kind and not pushy. He is also a good soul and generous person. Very interesting to talk with. A french ngo is running a kind of library on a shelf in this restaurant. Plenty of... More

Does what it says on the tin. I had an Indian dish with pickle (delicious and amazing!) so cannot speak for eating pizza or pasta. Xxxx

We had the thali and then the the aloo baingan. The food was authentic and delicious. We wished we'd found it earlier as we had to leave the following day. The owner was very friendly. Highly recommend it.

The food here is home cooked and delicious. The manager waits tables and cooks with his wife (who was pregnant when we were there) out back. It's just the two of them in this cosy little restaurant and its all so lovely. We ate here twice and loved every mouthful! Thank you so much!

Only 3 tables in the small room - so I felt like a winner every time I found a free chair when I was hungry. The food was excellent, and so was the service. The host Ravi Prakash was a very... More
