Loved this place and it was the only place we ate at in Varanasi. It is very small and sort of underground! Great live music every evening. The food is really good and the owner is very kind and helpful. He managed to produce beer for us and also when we asked for chutney he went to his Aunties house... More

This very small restaurant in the midst of the old city of Varanasi offers very tasty and, above all, fresh food. The owner is very friendly and helpful in choosing the right kind of meal - even for people whose sensitive stomach can't really take spicy Indian food. In the evenings there are free live music performances. We spent three... More

I have been here only once. The food was really reply testy! The owner of the restaurant was very kind. He advised us the food to order and it was the right choice! They even have a live music! It was amazing. But price was a little bit high as for me.

We visited this restaurant only once, but this visit was wonderful. The food was very tasty and the staff was great. There is a little free concert every evening in this restaurant.

This is a very small resturant. The food took quite a long time to prepare but the owner assured us it was because everything was so fresh. When the food arrived it was a taste sensation. Not cheap but very ample portions. We returned a second night to enjoy a different menu which was just as delicious.

The food was okay - as many people have mentioned, the owner takes the time to sit down with you and go over his "recommendations" - but I got the impression this was more to convince you to order what he's made that day than anything else!! i.e. Don't try to order anything other than what he's recommended: I appreciated...

We came here for dinner one night and found the owner to be rather overbearing and pushy with his food suggestions...although the food he suggested and we ordered was fine, we also ordered a paratha, which he very reluctantly agreed to make despite it being on the menu, and which he then never actually brought. The food was fairly average... More

What a wonderful breath of fresh air, to walk off the streets of the overly aggressive deceitful touts into this unpretentious Indian restaurant. The manager takes the time to sit with you and explain his cooking process, his methodology and his passion for food. And all the while sitar and tabla fill the air with mellifluous melodies. The food lives... More

You do not only get very good food here, but the owner takes time to recommend you the best options and combinations and even tells you the way to cook these exceptional tasty dishes! At night you can enjoy the beautiful classical Hindi music and the owner is also very open for discussions and will answer all sorts of your... More
