Food is Ok but most are too salty to my taste. Also, it is for vegertarian only. Location is great with great view. Service is good and good value.

We ate here a few times as it was convenient and price was good. Food was reasonable - pancakes for breakfast, curries like palak paneer and veg curry ok, naan terrible every time. Chai in a pot quite reasonable. Service was awful, having to get their attention to get menus and order virtually every time. Food took over 90mins to... More

We returned to this restaurant time and time again, with the food being consistent in quality and the service too. Awesome location, great atmosphere worth going up there even if just for the view and an evening drink. Particularly enjoyed the pancakes and porridge, their Palak Paneer and vegetable curry were really tasty, with a wide variety on the menu... More

Stayed and ate here over three days...staff welcoming, attentive and fun!! Food from thali, veggie seasonal curries to banana pancakes and yes egg and chips all good. There was a wait but all freshly cooked. Noticed they did not mange well with a big group arrive. View of the river the best!! A relaxing spot away from the chaos.

Ganpati restaurant is on top of the eponymous hotel overlooking the ghats and the Ganges. It's a little cool at night. The wifi is not working. I ordered mixed vegetable curry and garlic naan. The curry was good, the naan was not. The music varieties arising from the ghats and the radio at the front desk would make a unique... More

One of the best views overlooking Varanasi, but average food choices. Difficult to find the entrance.
