Went to the Canton restaurant for lunch- it’s inside a hotel, but still easy to find. Good selection of different kinds of food. A bit on the expensive side, but the food was good. Service was also good.

Awesome decor. That is by far the best part. Food I took was chicken dum biryani which was quite good, and I was quite hungry too. Ended with gulab jamun. The bill came to INR 662 which is quite manageable. Thanks Tripadvisor!

We got a table at the garden and it was very pleasant, as they had some musicians playing Indian music. The service was very good and also the food: both salad and artichoke were delicious. The wine was also perfectly cold.

The food is delicious here. The building was a palace that is now turned into an amazing restaurant. Indian food here is really good. Was really easy to choose since the menu has good descriptions. Service is good, but the waiters can use more training...More

Good afternoon. In February I stayed at your hotel for a couple of days. While there I went to your Canton Royale Restaurant for dinner. The food was amazing! I had Grandma's Mac and Cheese. Macaroni and cheese is one of my favourite dishes and the macaroni and cheese I had at your restaurant was the best I had ever had in my life. I am, in fact, still thinking about it. If I was ever in the vicinity of Varanasi I would make a special trip to your restaurant so I could order it again. However, I live in Canada. Would your chef be willing to share his/her macaroni and cheese recipe with me so I could make it at home? This probably seems like a strange request, and I should have asked while I was there, but I didn't ask and I'm so frustrated trying to find a recipe that comes close. There aren't any. Please let me know if it's possible to get your recipe. I swear I don't own a restaurant or anything; I would just love it for my use at home. I'd be willing to pay for the recipe. Thanks, and please let me know.
