Although I was the only one on the terrace I had to wait quite some time for the food. But when it came it was absolutely delicious. If you come towards the late afternoon then you can watch the kids flying their kites!

Best dosas in town. If you visit Varanasi, you mus teat here and try their dosas. Also best ginger-honey-lemon tea in town. Very beautiful rooftop, laid-back atmosphere with many plants and also 100% save from the wild monkeys in Varanasi.
