We had dinner here on a weekday night.

We decided to give this restaurant a go as we stayed at Ramada. Initial feelings were great when we sat down and placed our orders. The waiters were very attentive (partly because there were only 3 tables with patrons in the restaurant at the time including us). However, what turned the evening from rating 4 to 1 was the incessant to almost felt like nagging from the waiter to give a good review for his services when paying for the food. I understand that reviews help the workers get recommendations but when it interrupts the dining experience every 10 min the whole joint became a turn-off. In addition to the ceaseless interruptions from the waiters, they even took our food away before it was even finished, not even asking if we were done with it, which I thought was rude.

What convinced me to increase the review of this rating from 1 to 2 was the excellent naans that was served. We ordered both basic naan and garlic naan and both were excellent on its own which we got seconds. So perhaps a tip for future patrons of this restaurant, come here for a light start to your meal by getting some drinks and naan but move to a different restaurant for your main.

I have gone to the Tadka Restaurant @Ramada Varanasi many times and the food there is awesome esp. the "Bamboo Chicken Biryani" is the best biryani I have ever tasted it simply melts in your mouth. The food and the ambiance is very good too. The speed of the service is quite slow and they take time to serve but the food is worth the wait. The waiting staff is very polite and courteous too and they take care of you very well. Overall an awesome experience, probably the best in Varanasi

My wife and I visited the Ramada Plaza in Varanasi for 3 nights at the end of October, and enjoyed our dinner in Tadka so much that we decided to eat here three nights in a row.

Chef Nitish cooks an excellent bamboo biryani (we had it both with chicken and lamb) and the service from Avanish and Umesh was excellent.

Hopefully, we can come back to visit another time.

Banaras is known for authentic food lovers and there are several food joints to satisfy your test buds. My one of the favourite restaurant is Tadka@ Ramada Plaza Hotel in Varanasi. All dishes served by this restaurant having awesome test but Bamboo Biryani(Veg & Non Veg both) are amazing. If you are travelling to our spiritual city varanasi and like north Indian foods then must include this restaurant in your itinerary for Lunch/Dinner. Mujaffar & Umesh are super host and willing to server you on their every possible way.
