Simple vegetarian indian food. Little seating so you'd most likely have to wait during peak dinner time. Very little oil and spices in the food so good break for the tummy when travelling this part of India!!

Read the reviews, so decided to visit. Wanted somewhere tried and tested and wasn’t disappointed. Only a small place (4 tables), and people queue to get in. The Thali is great, best we had in Varanasi. Well worth a visit. Cheap too.

Food is fresh, hygienic and tasty. Its a small place run by family with hardly 3-4 tables. Go there for tasting indian home made meals or if u are craving for plain simple "ghar ka khana" Service is nice and warm
