Breakfast, lunch and dinner were enjoyed to the fullest from this amazing rooftop restaurant. Vegan options for all meals. Excellent service. Made friends and have stayed in contact.

Ganpati restaurant is on top of the eponymous hotel overlooking the ghats and the Ganges. It's a little cool at night. The wifi is not working. I ordered mixed vegetable curry and garlic naan. The curry was good, the naan was not. The music varieties arising from the ghats and the radio at the front desk would make a unique... More

One of the best views overlooking Varanasi, but average food choices. Difficult to find the entrance.

The food here is amazing. Every meal we had- delicious. Dhiraj ( the head host) works non-stop and is so lovely- friendly, funny and warm. I hope the hotel realise what a delightful staff member they have in him! Delicious food and excellent service.

It is hard to find - there is no more shiva poster as on one of TA photos. You need to look for a narrow red staircase. We were only guests in the evening time. After some waiting time only one dish from two ordered arrived. Food was correct but not good or delecious, place with nice view but untidy... More
