We ate here every day of our trip to Varanasi and were delighted by the flavors and diversity of the food. China was an extremely accommodating chef.

This café/restaurant on a rooftop is a nice place to have a bite, and it serves the purpose of funding the education centre situated in the same building. There might be other rooftop cafés in Varanasi, but none makes as much social and responsible sense...More

Great food, abundant portions and ready at any time you want. Rooftop is the best place to eat it, fresh in the morning or in the tranquility of the evening.
