“Excellent Indian food, wonderful staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2012

I went to Crystal Ball incidentally as the restaurant near by it serving chinese food was full. But crystal Ball is far better than most restaurant in Varanasi and it`s the only restaurant till now i have explored in varanasi which has a very warm and personalised service. the food is excellent. Their starters are worth trying and so as desserts. The ambience is very chic with minimalistic but soothing decor. a true fine dine experience.

“Very often we go for food to the adjacent restaurant Crystal Bowl. It offers very good Chinese vegetarian food.”

all dishes are very good. Many people from BHU visit to have food here. Soup is also tasty. It is not very costly so good place to have food often.

“Fabulous food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2012 via mobile

Terrific food and friendly service. If you didn't know what to choose, try the maharaja thali which is a selection of dishes. Some of the best food we have eaten in India over two weeks.

“Had a great thali!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 10, 2012

This is one of the best restaurants in Varanasi. Really good when one is longing for some great north indian food. Don't forget to try Maharaja thali in your visit (Could be a lot of food if you are not very hungry). A little expensive, and the service might be slow if there are a lot of people at the restaurant, but again a few minutes wait and a few more rupees can't compare for a good meal.
