Ive eaten a lot of Dosas around India, and these dosas are at the top of my list! They are seriously ALL good. Try the spinach and potato dosa for something new. Fantastic!! Also the Mixed Veg Uttapam is a really nice take on the usually slightly bland Indian staple. Closest thing Ive ever had to what they claim as an 'Indian Pizza'.

And you absolutely can NOT leave the place without trying the Chocolate Idly. The wonderful owner tweaked his own recipe to come up with this gold mine!! Very welcoming warm family running the place. We really felt at home popping in everyday for our afternoon Dosa fix. Much better than most of the food we tried in other much more expensive places in Varanasi.

If you love dosas then you will love this place! We've been 3 days in a row now and plan to make it a daily venture for as long as we're in Varanasi. A variety of dosas, uttapam, and idli... the chocolate truffle idli is to die for!!!! A great find and a great treasure right near the main ghat. Varanasi can be a bit crazy sometimes and this is a perfect place to bring you back to comfort. Wonderful owner, wonderful family, wonderful food! And at a VERY reasonable price!
