Great service, okay food.

We had a small birthday party here, food was between good and okay. Service was excellent. Ambiance and location very good. We were given a separate part of the restaurant with no extra cost. I would recommend to everyone and especially for parties. Restaurant manager Mr. Niraj Rai had been a great... read more

The Canton Royale Restaurant is within the grounds of the Hotel Surya in the Cantonment district. It faces the hotel Reception across the lawn, where meals are also served in appropriate weather. It is in a nearly 200 year old heritage building which is totally charming with interesting old black and white photographs on the walls. Given the excellent quality... More

I had lunch here recently. I was travelling solo, and wanted a simple lunch. I ordered a vegetarian thali. It was quite a large serve overall, and the individual components were superb. Every dish was packed with flavour, richly spiced, and interesting. The price was I thought exceptionally modest for a meal of this standard. Highly recommended.

We were staying in nearby Ramada Hotel. We discovered Canton Royale during first night (thanks TA!!) and we ate all our dinners afterwards. Out of all restaurants we tried during our 15 days in India, this stands out as the best of them all. Great atmosphere in a colonial relaxed setting with very welcoming service. Good cocktails to start with.... More

Handsome clean interior, good food, fast (but expensive - 150 rupees for 24 hours) wifi but very slow service. So in general it's a very good place if we don't hurry and have a money.

We tried many restaurants in Varanasi. We ended up eating here three times. Whilst not cheap he food was excellent, fresh and tasty. Their tandoori food was great, and great garlic naan. Wine list was very limited. But this is not unusual in this part of world.

Thank you for taking the time to review us. It is true that not many varieties of wine are available in our region. We do offer the best ones though and select pairings with our menu items. Thank you for the recommendations. I'm sure our future guests will appreciate your suggestions. We look forward to having you here again. More

The food is absolutely excellent and well-becoming. The staff is friendly and efficient. We ate there as guests of the Hotel Surya, two times a day for over two weeks and we were never once disappointed. The Canton Royale Restaurant maintained outstanding quality in food and service for our entire extended stay. Superb!

I loved Canton Royale, restaurant housed in the Kaiser Palace a 200 year old heritage building! It is Hotel Surya's excellent main restaurant.

We stayed in Surya Hotel and were excited to eat here because it was mentioned in Lonely Planet guide. The service was ok (we were refused a table we asked for because they wanted to save it for a bigger group though the place was completely empty). Dhal was way too buttery. Potato curry was fine. Tea was really bad... More
