This restaurant did not have many reviews but our hostel recommended it and we ended up going there all the time! The food was so tasty and delicious, big portions, pretty good price (around 80 for Aloo Ghobi and 160 for big thali), very nice atmosphere (it has been renovated since the photos shown on here) and really nice staff!

Not surprising that enough world eateries adorn the... More

food was very good, atmosphere was fine, became friendly with manager and servers, as we were staying at a hotel near Assi Ghat and became regulars for excellent breakfast, lunches and dinners.

This is one of the good restaurants in assi ghaat. It's food is good and little high on pockets as per Varanasi STDs. Overall good if you are looking for good experience. Suggestion they need to hve more local dairy sweetdishes on their menu also.

This place is a bit in interior. They do take food on delivery. Decent and good hotel. They have indian and chinese food served. And goos breakfast choice. The cost is just a little bit more if you want to have everday food from here....

In typical Indian fashion (we have found) food was great and service was not so great. We loved the meal we had and would definitely go back. The tables are a bit shabby. The table cloth was dirty but nothing a plate couldn't hide. It was our first ice cream experience in India and would probably give it a miss... More

Tried this place tonight as we wanted something close to our hotel in Assi. The menu has a lot of meals to choose from and are reasonably priced. The restaurant itself is also quite nice inside. Recommend a having a meal here.

My friend and I wanted to learn the delicious cooking that the Shiva restaurant serves. We took a cooking class there and it was really good. We had friends come and eat the food we prepared - it was a super fun evening.! Thank you!

I was actually quite startled to taste banana chops inside my lassi, but it was amazing still! I drank some lassis in Haridvar and Rishikesh alraedy but this is by far something else. The crew is friendly and seem very devoted. Highly recommended guys. Cheers!
