we ate at the Brownie Green in Sarnath---one of the few decent restaurants in that town. it's linked to the Brownie in Varanasi. Great food-- really nice selection and good quality. Beautifully done interior--- all local materials and nicely laid out. prices are higher than many places, but there is little competition, it's good food, and they donate to local charities. However the servers were bored, rude, and arrogant--- would not return unless no other option given their attitude.

Overall, the food was not bad. However, don't expect to receive what you ordered. If you want balsamic, ask for ketchup because balsamic is said not to be available but if you ask for ketchup, you'll end up with balsamic. It doesn't make sense but you should look on the bright side, we had quite some fun.

Don't get your hopes up, although the food isn't bad, you probably won't eat what you ordered. The staff is friendly but not that intelligent. English may be an issue, but if you order a lasagna with spinach and salami and you don't find any spinach or salami in it, I don't consider it a language issue.

We went to Brownie since it was near to our hotel. It looks more like a shack then a proper restaurant. They have a lot of variety on the menu from an Indian thali to Pizza's, but the food is not good. Also considering the ambiance the prices are steep.

Ambiance is reasonable. Service very slow. As for the food! A chicken bolognese pizza without any tomato was unpleasant. An "Indian style" chicken bolognese pizza was the same with dried chilli sprinkled on top. Nothing else was nice. We shall not go back.
