Great meals, served by the family owned restaurant. Totally recommend this to anyone coming to Varanessi. Reasonably priced, variety of meals and great peaceful surroundings. Love the family influence. 5 star worth of experience.

A nice change from what usually find in Varanasi. You can really tell that this is a family owned restaurant. Nachos are awesome. So is the beet soup and buffalo steak. We'll be back.
