- We ate in the restaurant which is located in the upper floor of the building - You stop hearing the noise of the streets, it is globally calm - We had: Mutton byriani (constituted of bones mainly, not too much meat, to avoid) Plain raita (delicious) Rice Vegetarian indian dish (very good also) - The waiter gazed at us,...

If you love your drinks with your starters this is the place to be in. Don't go by the looks of it, the starters of Chilli Chicken and Veg pakora's served here beat it's competition all across India.

Well the restaurant is mostly like the other ones; Nice place, good food, prices are alright. Bar hasn't got a good ambiance and the drinks aren't allowed in the restaurant. Overall a nice restaurant.

During my two days of stay I had dinner here only. It was quite economical and with AC which was a must in summer. Service was pretty good, staffs are customer friendly. Food is also nice. And the best part was the crowd. Most of the crowd is noisy, youthful.

It located in one of the most congested places of Varanasi, the Sigra four way. It doesn't have a parking fecility either. once you climb 1 floor up a dull ambiance welcomes you. The water is served according to the suitable temperature, perfect for drinking. Once you place the order, it takes around 20 minutes to be delivered to you... More

The place is dull & depressing. Awful atmosphere to get a drink. Awfully slow service. Really unhygienic too!
