Having previously travelled to Agra with memories of sharks and rip off merchants, the staff at Shankaras, were friendly, relaxed and went out ot their way to be genuinely helpful. The food especially the omelettes and vegetarian curries was superb and worth the wait to be made from scratch. Highly recommended.

The food is really good. Veg thali and sweets is really good. If you are finding a good veg restaurant then this is the best place to visit.

This place has the best banana Lassi outside of varanasi, if you're in Agra you should try it! The veg pakora is good as well, if you fancy a snack. The view from the terrace on the other hand is not great, you can see the taj way better from other places nearby...

Good value cheap food. And safe. All food is made with mineral water. The owner is very friendly and allowed us to sit and use the wifi long after we had finished eating our food.

Good vegetarian food, big menu to choose from. Free WiFi and rooftop terrace. Airco inside. The owner is very kind and not pushy like all the other restaurant owners in Agra.

The view from this café is really special, overlooking the streets of Agra and the top of the Taj Mahal! We enjoyed some lovely masala chai before heading downstairs for dinner which was truly delicious. The owner was wonderfully friendly and chatted to us welcomingly while we ate. In general we found there was very little to do in Agra... More
