The cafe is small and less flashy than more touristy places but don’t judge it by it s appearance!

The eggplant and potato curry was delicious (and not spicy) and came very quickly.

The owner is very nice and also speaks English and French! I met a couple who had strict dietary restrictions and he made them a completely customized dish.

The very nice owner is a fast and talented cook. All curries we tried tasted fantastic and were served with a smile. Prices are the most reasonable one can find in the area. Recommendable!

We ate here everyday of our 2 weeks in varanasi! Amazing food and good prices! We loved the hummus. Everything is so fresh and made by a talented cook! Don't be mislead by the serious face of Santos (the owner) He has a HUGE heart and he is so kind. He helped us in many different things all the time.
WE LOVE YOU SANTOS!

We went for dinner after watching the river worship at Dashashwamedh Ghat. Both curries were delicious, but the Fried Eggplant Curry was particularly good. I avoid eggplant dishes at home, but India has changed my opinion and this curry was especially tasty.
