So my friend and I wanted to try out the rooftop restaurant at Ganpati because it looked inviting from the pictures, and because we were staying right next door in Alka, it was convenient for us to dine there till late.

Nice food and view overlooking the Ganges! I liked the Thali and fried rice the best. It would be nice to visit again when it isn't the monsoon season though !

Like any other part of the hotel, the staff were very welcoming and willing to help as best they could. Service was generally quite quick and the food was beautiful. I would highly recommend the pancakes and Biryani

The rooftop restaurant doesn't attract us as it was 40++ celcius when we were there. The food was ordinary but highly priced.

convenient. We couldn't manuver the alleys to go far to eat, so we took all our meals at the hotel. The menu had something for everyone.

The location of this restaurant is hard to beat for dinner and the staff are great. Unfortunately the food wasn't of the same quality and two of pur party got very ill in the following days, but two didn't so maybe we were unlucky! Would give it another go.

A nice experience. What sets it apart from the 50+ other restaurants with the same menu is the view and the service.
