We stayed at this hotel and ate there frequently during our stay. The staff was kind and always joking with us. I enjoyed the ordinary thali a lot, and enjoyed the view of the Ganga. Thank you!

The staff, though cold at first, really grew on your by the end of our trip. They were all really nice. We ate here most often, mostly because it was so convenient. You aren't going to Varanasi for the food.

We ate here a few times as it was convenient and price was good. Food was reasonable - pancakes for breakfast, curries like palak paneer and veg curry ok, naan terrible every time.

We returned to this restaurant time and time again, with the food being consistent in quality and the service too.

Stayed and ate here over three days...staff welcoming, attentive and fun!! Food from thali, veggie seasonal curries to banana pancakes and yes egg and chips all good. There was a wait but all freshly cooked. Noticed they did not mange well with a big group arrive. View of the river the best!! A relaxing spot away from the chaos.
