The ambience of this restaurant was nice. The view from the rooftop restaurant was amazing. Though the service was slow, the taste of food stuffs served here was good.

We stayed at the hotel and ate here for both lunch and dinner. Both times it was delicious (we had a veg Indian meal) and a good price! 100% recommend to anyone, especially the rooftop (although too hot during the day)

Meals were generally good and plentiful. One could order Vegetarian Indian or western style food. The real draw is the incredible view of the Ganges river in both directions.

Go there for excellent view of Varanasi Ghat. Food is nice and service is also good. But mostly its all about view of ghats. Will prefer next time to go there around evening for sunset and sipping some chai
