We went for a 1 month trip around India. We visited Kolkata, Rajasthan (Jaipur, Udaipur, Jodpur, Pushkar), Agra Varanasi and finally Goa.

Varanasi was in the 3rd quarter of our trip so we were kind of low in proteins, if you know what I mean !
We were starving for meat and we followed the Routard guide which indicated this small restaurant as a steak house ! We don't regret it !
A Nepalese familly was very welcoming, the restaurant was very simple but the food... delicieous
The steaks were very well cooked, in a smoked sauce and steamed vegetables.. everything that we ordered was really delicious and not very expensive !

Just be carefull when you go there : apparently there is another restaurant with the same name. When you go there, be sure to confirm the adress with your taxi driver before leaving !

This restaurant is the perfect place to escape from typical 'India horrors' you might experience as a tourist in India (you know what I mean ;) ). It is run by a very sweet Nepalese family and they have the right to sell beef meat! This was a welcome change during our three week stay in India. The family is more than kind and if you let them know in advance they can also prepare a take-away meal for you: a lunch for in the bus or even a pie to eat later on.
The food is delicious: we have eaten here two out of our three nights in Varanasi and certainly do not regret it.
The place looks very cute. You can dine both in- and outside. Food is safe to eat, of course :)

This place is really cute and have outdoor seats as well. It is a family from Nepal who are running this place. Food is a mix of western and Nepalese. Really good even the steaks as you wont expect this. Most important in India, it is a very safe plae to eat. Food and kitchen is clean. Give it a try!

Sit in the terrace garden and escape from the hustle and bustle of the street below you. We had the best meal of our two week trip to India here. All due to the amazing water buffalo steaks that were pure perfection. We come from beef country in Canada and know our steaks and these were amazing. Great little restaurant!

Friendly, family run restaurant. The vegetarian Nepali dinner was excellent. The "mountain soup" was lovely.
