“What a place”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

Cannot imagine that this small hole in the wall is such a hit especially with the foriegn tourists. My wife and I were teh only two Indian in there and rest of around 20 people cramped up in the hotel seating on wooden benches back to back were foreigners. Cannot imagine, how they managed to search and come to this place.

In terms of the lassi, there was a huge variety. I tried the base lassi. It was amazing. So i guess the flavoured ones were also good. Price for all this fame is free. At a rate of Rs 25 for a glass, it was 100% value for this quality. Would have paid 4 times more without complaining ;).

“Good, but not quite "Lassi"”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

As a local it was certainly a different and unique experience going there. The menu, with all its varieties, was impressive too! But what they serve is not quite lassi. Lassi is supposed to be a refreshing drink that energises you and cools down your stomach on a hot day. What you do there is eat. Although the nice taste, it doesn't do justice to the characteristics of lassi. It is a touristic version of lassi, but not quite lassi for lassi lovers. I might go there again in the future for a change of experience sake, but I don't look forward to it really. Besides, the place is more of a tourist attraction than a local lassi-joint (and they have very well thought it through and it works for them), they take their own sweet time to prepare the lassi. I do not prefer waiting for my lassi that long. Of course, like I said, it works very well for the tourist class and you should definitely go there for the experience. However, you should also go somewhere else to experience the real lassi.

“NOT the best!”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

Well it might almost be .......I found the Saffron Lassi in Jodhpur possibly the most amazing ever but this one looked better. Ok i'm comparing Saffron with the humble banana here.
I went here about 5 times in my 9 days in Varanasi and loved it every time. Crazy seeing bodies carried past while your sitting there.
Its another MUST do .
