We only had tea and enjoyed the view over Ganga. But this was nice, it is worth a visit in the afternoon!

We had lunch at the Dolphin restaurant on the roof of the Rashmi Hotel in Varanasi. This had come with a personal recommendation and good reviews. The climb to the roof is typically steep and narrow but we were rewarded with a good view of the Ganges. We agreed that the food was good - well balanced spices and the channa masala arguably the best we had tasted (possibly unchallenged for the remaining 3 weeks in India). The experience was somewhat diminished by indifferent and impersonal service, almost as if they were aware of the reputation for good food and so friendly and timely attention wasn't warranted. While the food was good we didn't elect to go back for dinner.

The view is unbeatable and I enjoyed the nice food. People are very friendly and if you are interested in a nice conversation ask for Pappu - he could be your perfect guide in varanasi.

The food here was already good but enjoying it from the top floor of a building overlooking the ghats and the Ganges makes the pleasure even greater.
