Had a simple stir fry, it was tasty and a break from spices. The lemonade with mint was very refreshing. Service wasn't exactly brilliant but it wasn't awful either.

Stunning location right on the river and great to watch the world go by.

There are not so many options to have dinner in the ghats area. Lotus Lounge is one of them. The food is ok, and you eat facing the river which is always magical, either sitting at a table or lying on matresses. A little music, a tad more light and a more smiling staff would do no harm...

The setting for the Lotus Lounge is brilliant, the views over the Ganges and surrounding Ghats make it unique. However the staff seem disinterested with was surprising considering the popularity of the place, but then again I could have been spoilt by local restaurants who cant seem to do enough for you.
When it came to order, the first two things - which were various chicken dishes- were unavailable, then the waiter proceeded to point out everything else which wasn't.
Despite this, when my mushroom pasta came it was really tasty, as was my banana milkshake which was strange because I ordered vanilla.
But overall its worth a visit for the view and the food which is available is lovely.

A perfect location for dinner and watch the river from a height. Nice taste of western food, a good place if you want some salad, pasta and non-Indian food. And they and one of the fastest serving restaurant in India.

I came back twice during my short visit to Varanasi just for the momos. So tasty! Stunning view of the Ganges.
