“Very Nice”
Reviewed 2 August 2014

Visited here on the advice of our guide, who also ate with us. The only downside was we had to climb many, many flights of stairs to reach the restaurant. We found the menu had a wide variety of dishes and the food was very nice and tasty. We ate indoors as it was cooler, the view from the terrace is impressive, especially at night when the religious ceremonies are taking place. We'd definitely eat here again.

“Good food and chai”
Reviewed 26 June 2014

The restaurant offers good food and chai, and has an incredible view as it is on the roof top of the Rashmi Guest House. Situated on one of the ghats near the main ghat.

“Its ok”
Reviewed 4 June 2014

We seemed to find on our travels, you are best trying more local places to eat than tourist ones, this was ok, food was nice enough, our waiter was slightly strange, asked if we wanted drinks, so we asked for two beers to share between four of us, and we got a lecture about how we shouldn't drink, so we had coke, this happened to the next table as well, who insisted on beer and got it, it was quite funny really. Wouldn't go back

“Great View”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

This was a nice escape from the madness of Varanasi.
Fantastic views of the Ganges and also the Old Observatory.
Food was good but didn’t know you could not get a cold beer at lunch time as they only serve drinks afternoon/night.
