Although I am staying in assi ghat, I decided to venture to Lahurabir to try out lemon grass.

It was a lovely restaurant, and there were always wait staff to help.

Although only one spoke english, it wasn't a problem, and food was prompt and delicious.

There was a black out whilst we were there, but they had an inverter so it was not problem. The staff were lovely about it, and looked at us as if it was their fault.

There is a sign on the road, and a door man, who leads you to the entrance, in a cave.

Lovely, and typically western and clean.

I visited this place with 2 friends. It was very hard to locate the restaurant , for that we need to ask the directions from the owner. It is a restaurant with good ambiance and food and seating is on first floor. Seats are comfortable and lighting is very good. You can see the chefs preparing the food , which for me was the best part. We ordered Chilly chicken , Chicken Bhagela and breads. Both chicken dishes specially chilly chicken was awesome. It was crispy and not too saucy and spicy. Chicken Bhagela was good and breads(Garlic Naan and Butter Naan) were nicely cooked. In all the service was good , a clean and hygienic restaurant which is very difficult to find in Varanasi. Tasty food and little expensive, very little to be precise.

We ate at this restaurant twice, once for dinner and the other time for lunch. The service was prompt the first time, but during our second time there, we had to wait for almost an hour for our food to arrive. The waitress, who spoke good English, was friendly enough and she politely apologized for the delay but it didn't really help that we were starving. We decided to forgive them once we got to taste the food. Everything we ordered for those two meals was sumptuous. From the curry to the fried rice to the mango lassi, we were oh-so-satisfied! The best dish of all was the grilled chicken. I couldn't remember the name of it but I have attached a picture here for your reference. The chicken was divine! The restaurant was clean and had a decent toilet. The ambience is also cozy. Please do eat here and you won't regret it!

The fish curry was really nice. Even other non veg dishes like mutton and chicken were very tasty. Had food twice there during my 4 day stay in varanasi. Also great value for money

Lemon Grass provides very tasty food and is located only about 2 minutes walk from the HHI Hotel. It describes itself as a 'family' restaurant so does not serve alcohol - and true to its description, a number of families were present the evening we ate there. Their vegetable jhalfarezi was amongst the best we had over 3 weeks in India. The only downside is that it is located downstairs - fine for the evening, but perhaps not for lunch if you are looking for somewhere with an outlook.
