Excellent service! Very reasonably priced silk scarves and superbly honest staff who also speak excellent English. Showed us the difference between the different qualities of silk and synthetic before any selection took place as well!

This shop is a great place that does not fit to the general Waranasi's atmosphere. The salespersons are very competent, kind and polite and what is most important, they speak English very well. This ease the communication and allows you to focus on the products....More

This shop is AMAZING! A must-visit for shopping in Varanasi. Avoid the tacky tourist shops and come here for the real deal. The friendly owner refuses to pay commission to taxi and tuk tuk drivers, so you get far better prices. Ask to be dropped...More

Baba Black Sheep is really hard to find in Varanasi, but it’s certainly worth it to pay a visit to this shop, which is quiet and comfortable. The shop assistants are kind and professional, they speak perfect English and make themselves understood in other languages...More
