Be Happy Cafe is a wonderful restaurant specializing in authentic thin crust pizzas, pastas with all homemade sauces, fresh green salads, a variety of sandwiches on fresh baked brown bread, and amazing dessert items including dark chocolate truffles and cheesecakes. They wash all their salads and fruits in mineral water so you can be sure it is safe. They are the only restaurant serving Espresso coffee in Bodhgaya. You can choose from all varieties of Lavazza coffees including Cappucino and Lattes! They also offer Wi Fi, as well as water refills from their UV/RO water purifier. Everything we tried here was delicious! The pizzas were amazing and the Greek Salad was delicious. We also tried the Pasta with fresh basil pesto topped with black olives and cheese, which was also very good. The coffee was the best we have had in India and the chocolate cake simply melts in your mouth. The cafe is run by a friendly Indian man and his Canadian wife.
Favorite Dish: Our favorite dish was the Carmelized Onion pizza topped with black olives. Everything was made fresh including the dough and the sauce and then topped with real mozzarella cheese and baked to perfection! For dessert it was a tie between the chocolate truffle cake and the banoffe pie. For coffee we liked the Cafe Mocha.

This restaurant is located near the Thai Temple on the corner of Temple Street which is the road that takes you to the Big Buddha statue. I came here for lunch whilst the temples were closed during lunchtime and had a good vegetable noodles. I was the only person inside until 2 western girls turned up.
This place is very popular with backpackers, budget travellers and long-term stayers how are staying on meditation courses. The food is excellent and cheap and you can sit outside and chat with fellow travellers. The only downside is that you can be surrounded by beggars which the restaurant waiters shoo away.
There's a row of temporary restaurant tents on both sides of the road near the Tibetan Refugee Market that mainly sell fairly cheap food and have some good music for atmosphere. I would just watch out for the standards of cleaniness offered in these places before deciding to eat.
These places are located on the main road that goes to Gaya near the Sujata Bridge and were just over the road from where I was staying at the Deep Guest House (see hotels tip). I can't remember which ones I ate what in but they do good basic and cheap food here especially breakfasts. I had dinner at Gautam which is just along from the 'Pole-Poles' where I had a good soup that was specially made out of what ingredients they could find. However, there was a downside (I think). I was ill for over a week after eating in these places as they're nothing my than tents with galley type kitchens. Be warned!
The food was good, and the atmosphere sort of traditional. Be careful with meat or fish, but that´s the same all over india. Best would be, to pay the cook, to get a living chicken from the market, and have him prepare it realy fresh. (that´s what we did, and you can share the costs).
You can also find Krishna there, and his Horse Raju (if it´s still alive). He´ll gladly take you through town, or to the mahakalla caves in his Kart.
