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

Excellent! Ask for "Special Indian Tea"! Roof top restaurant with an awesome view of Gange River. Vegetarian food really interesting, with particular attention for Byriani rice.

We had birjani (Rice) and Thali special on 18 November 2016 and both got very ill for the next 24 hours (and counting). No recommendation from us therefore.

My favorite rooftop restaurant for breakfast in Varanasi. They make excellent banana chocolate pancakes if you have enough of Indan Breakfasts. Great fresh juices and lassis as well.

This restaurant serves up pretty good food. It is neither too spicy nor bland, just the right amount of ingredients to make it tasty. I had daal (lentils) of various kinds, rotis (pitas), potato, cauliflower vegetables and more. Everything was clean, fresh and great tasting. Staff is attentive and polite. View from the rooftop and great, try to get there... More

We liked the ambiance of the restaurant in evening but the food is average. The Indian veg thali was good. But the veg chowmein, veg fried rice, chilli paneer , mushroom spring roll we ordered, were all very much oily. So better to avoid and look for other options .....

We stayed at this hotel and visited this restaurant. The first thing is that you get a wonderful view of the Ganga flowing by. The hotel is right on the Ganga river bank at Meer ghat. It is good for breakfast or evening dinner. The restaurant is on the open terrace. You need to climb a flight of stairs after... More
