If you are feeling like a zombie after dragging your carcass around in +45 degree heat, stop at Shankara Vegis for some A/C, wifi, friendly conversation and pretty decent food to be rejuvenated. The owners are two brothers that run the restaurant together, and they don't pressure customers to come in for food (unlike many other establishments in the area).... More

Service was good, Lassi was quite poor, food was not the best. Definitely lacked freshness, owner was quite relaxed.

We visited at the beginning of our 6 week trip around India and it was hard to compete with for the rest of our trip. The thalis were amazing, incredible food and great service. The owner is so lovely and welcoming. This place rocks!

This was the first restaurant we've visited that actually gave us spicy food when we asked for it! Thank you! The food was quite good and the staff was pleasant. I would eat here again.

I got dropped off here by my driver after the guide finally left. I mentioned Shankara to the guide and he ignored me. The driver listened to me, which was smart. When I entered the restaurant, the owner was amazing!!! He is incredibly friendly, sharing a lot of information about the restaurant, food and area in general. He talked with... More

... that's the highlight of this tiny cheap restaurant, strongly recommended by all the travel websites. The owners are also very lovely and reliable with their customers, lassi here is delicious. Unfortunately, it's not the same for its hygienic conditions: the toilet is very badly maintained and cutlery was not properly washed. There are some areas of improvement!

Our meals (curry potato + onion+ spinach and vegetable kofta) were deliciously authentic home-cooked from scratch and were delivered to us on their cosy roof top dining area which overlooks the busy streets below which made for great entertainment. The masala tea was excellent and the banana lassi was to die for; you can see why they say it's the... More

He has the George Clooney face, the expressions, and the gentle kindness of George Clooney, and the food is excellent as well. We came across the Shankara Vegis by accident with the owner (of the George Clooney looks) asking us in for a meal. That time we did not go in. Later when my daughter was unwell and we had... More

Having previously travelled to Agra with memories of sharks and rip off merchants, the staff at Shankaras, were friendly, relaxed and went out ot their way to be genuinely helpful. The food especially the omelettes and vegetarian curries was superb and worth the wait to be made from scratch. Highly recommended.
