Huge spread. If you don’t want to choose, try the Veg Thali or the non veg Muslim Thali. If you want to go light, order a simple sattu paratha. Served with chokha, it is delightful.

The river Ganges has two tributaries: Varuna and Assi - from there comes the name to one of the world's oldest cities - "Varanasi ". This restaurant at Taj Ganges is also inspired by one of these rivers.... My dinner experience here (07 May 2017)...More

There are only two thalis, each costing approx. Rs 1300. Otherwise you have a very elaborate alacarte menu and the cost will depend on the items ordered.
