Less than a minute’s walk from Gadowlia chowk – the center of old city, the restaurant complex is an oasis in the middle of chaos. The food is delicious (especially the Falafel), and served with a smile. The intricately carved Kali temple in the complex is another highlight – a great place to explore while you wait for the food... More

Phulwari restaurant is in godowlia in varanasi. We went there after checking out some relaly good comments about the place on this page, but we were very badly disappointed. The waiter didn't take our order for the first 15 minutes because he was serving some foreigner tourists. After that they took about 30 minutes to get our simple chowmein prepared.... More

From Indian to continental I have tried few and returned to this place for lunch and dinner during my stay in Varanasi. The place is a bit separate from the lanes / streets of... More

We weren't given our food cos they seem to prefer serving to a bunch of western travelers. Go if you don't care about that sort of thing but its really sad. Really terribly behaved unapologetic manager/steward.

We first came across this semi-hidden eating destination just as the heat and calls of "Durggaaa" were beginning to get to us. From the outside, the archway hide most clear signs that we were entering a restaurant, but upon entry we discovered that this small outside cafe was nestled away next to a quaint and forgotten temple. We were greeted... More
