“unique kind of place to visit in varanasi”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2013

it is a small place.
nice to hangout with a group of guys.
the design creativity is excellent.the tbales and chairs are made of recycled material and the designer deserves the appreciation.

mainly popular for its HOOKA,(150-200Rs)
food is not good(poor)
but ambience is good with all lighting and music.
tHERES NO BAR HERE.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2013

So amazing restaurant. Cool place and vanguard style, really nice recycling decor.
Food is very good (pizzas are great!) and staff is also very nice.
Good situated, closed to Ganga river in Assi Ghat.

“The only place in varanasi with the best night life.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2013

Well i have been staying here for 4 years and visiting this cafe since last year.i have visited several small big cafes in city with my international friends and none have said even avg for this place.for them it was best place for food along with relaxing.100% healthy food with the most unique menu and unbelievable price.you wont find this menu anywhere at this price.managed by two young guys and a jordan guy Mohammad.small cool garden and i assure you'll be shocked to see the creativity of furniture.the best creativity in the city.service might be a little slow as they cook on getting order to ensure the freshness n taste.the cafe is loaded with amazing stereo system which makes it a pseudo disco club like zone.one of the fastest wi-fi.and very much peaceful spot if you wanna relax yourself.it would be injustice to point out any food stuff as whatever mentioned in menu is at its best and i can say that because most of my international friends have visited and tried various options n they have loved it.once your here you wont feel like going anywhere else in the city.

Its located near Assi ghat area just 5 minutes ahead of assi ghat street behind Dumrao Park @Assi.and the best thing is its never closed anyday of week.time is perfect 10am to 11pm but last order is taken at 10pm.

“The only chillout lounge by day and semi club restaurant by the Ganges.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2013

Junkyard is near Assi Ghat, the last ghat, and it's got a park in front of it. Their is little traffic, and a huge tree in the yard. It's an indoor outdoor place, with a stereo system that the customers are welcome to plug their music into. The lighting is great. Extremely rare in india, how cool is that?
Besides that, one of the owners in a Jordanian man who makes great arabic food... one can get good hummus, lehbna, fassoulia, mutton dishes if ordered in advance.
The pizza is great... the pasta is definitely more than passable(I was born in Italy), I try to avoid indian food so.. no comment on that.
The place is frequented by University students of both sexes(two university students also are part of the management), who mostly enjoy smoking hookah pipes and order pizza while they play indian or foreign pop by the most part.
Great place to chill out on a hot day and drink lemonade with clean ice, or enjoy a nightclub atmosphere at night.
