Went for dinner, owner comes asks what type of food you'd like (veg or non veg) explains how the food is cooked (& how it shouldn't be), suggests a combination of dishes to experience. Imagine the gratifying groan of amazing flavours on your tastebuds...that's Ganga Fuji. Oh, & nightly entertainment to enjoy 😊

If there was one thing that would make me come back to Varanasi it would be to see Kalish and eat his delicious food at Ganga Fuji restaurant! This was not my first time in India, but it was my first time in Varanasi and we arrived in the later evening from Kashmir and after finally settling at our guesthouse... More

Ganga fuji is a standard tourist restaurant with both Indian and more Western-style options on the menu for relatively expensive prices. Perfect for those who are just after a safe option for dinner amongst the eclectic mix available out on the streets. The owner is very accommodating and enthusiastic about recommending dishes.

I have visited the restaurant a couple of times within my stay in Varanasi. The meals a prepared by a food artist, without oil and water, just the juice of the ingredients itself. The preparation of the food is explained in detail by the cordial owner. Wonderful and delicious taste! Must have visit in Varanasi!

First, it is important to say that this restaurant is in a undeground room with no windows what so ever (take care of you are looking for the restaurant of Ganga Fuji hotel, it's not this one!), not really a nice place even if there was nice live music. Second, take care, the owner wants you to buy extra stuff,... More

Eat here if youre a gullable, safe traveller who likes to come back to the same place over and over again. The food is good without being great but the owner made us buy things we didn't want and overcharged it. Tried to scam us at the end and made a wrong bill.

Arrived in Varanasi at start of demonetisation with little cash, Kailish the owner offered us a meal and told us to pay him when we got money. Came back a few times to eat after that and food was delicious, let Kailish recommend a meal, he picks well. Cheap and escaped any tummy troubles so was cooked well. Also let... More
