When traveling, we don't usually eat at the same restaurant more than once, but the Lotus Lounge was an exception; we ate here three times during our stay in Varanasi! Why? The food is fresh and of good value, and it felt safe and clean after seeing Varanasi's other eateries. We loved the yogurt, muesli and fruit breakfast and both ordered that twice. The plunge coffee was another treat.

The atmosphere is funky but comfortable and coushioned seating overlooks the ghats -- from a safe, peaceful distance. And, if you like cats, you'll have a ball playing with "Meow Meow," the rambunctious resident kitten. We wanted to take her home with us!

After a week in not great food we found the lotus lounge on an afternoon stroll along the Ganges. So good went back for dinner. Salads where safe and fantastic!!! Chicken mo mo a,so really good. The mint lemonade drink very refreshing.
There is good relaxing area to just lounge at and tab,es for eating if you prefer. The service was really good best we found. High,y recommend for food and to chill for a few hours.

Don't miss it. Great during the day and even better at night. Had the green and fruit salads which were perfect. Pasta cooked to perfection. And the service was a delight. The view is outstanding. Went back there twice. Highly suggest this place.

Eating outside along the Ganga is asking for bugs to swarm you. The food was good and we had our first western meal in a week here, but I could have used some deet.
