At the ghat or riverside, the restaurants are in this kind of setup, you don't have McDonald's here nor Starbucks Coffee. What you can try is to sit on the staircase and see what they have in there. I saw many tourists drink tea there and my boatman told me the best ghat restaurant was the one with chairs, so please look out for chairs.

this restaurant of a small hotel serves yummy food.. however, the followings may be the reasons why the food taste so "yummy" & distinctive:
1. the "chunks" of "cow dung" being dried just outside its window (pic 1)
2. the dirt-encrusted tableware
3. the "recycled detergent container" used to contain take-away food
However, the above are parts and parcels of a backpackin trip and they are what makes a trip or an experience unique!! My suggestion, bring some wet tissues, ignore the aromatic smell across the window and do not take-away food!

I don't have picture on this one but I love the oranges here so much. Fruits can be seen selling on the street mobile stall or vendors. They sell mostly oranges, apples, grapes, bananas, etc. For me, I never buy the apples and grapes, I only buy the oranges and bananas. They sell at 30Rs for 5 oranges and it taste so sweet. Bananas are good too.

I bought one pack to test its flavour when I was here in Varanasi. The noodles was a product of Maggi and the flavour here is Masala, famous all over India. I boiled the water using my own boiler, the taste was fantastic, you should try one. The grocery shop owner sold me 11Rs per pack, probably expensive but I just want to test, did not bargain.

If you are in Varanasi, try some delicious Indian vegetarian foods like Paneer Makhani, Paneer tikka, Paneer butter masala or any item of Paneer (Indian cottage cheese) as such. You will surely lick your fingers. But I would suggest that one goes for big restaurants and not streetside food corners.

The food in my hotel (the Radisson) was very good and I did not get much chance to eat outside because of a hectic schedule but I am told that Varanasi is known for its desserts. Obviously choosing a hotel to eat is a lot safer but there are plenty of restaurants in Varansi serving a wide range of cuisines including Chinese and continental. One interesting name caught me which was ‘Hilarious Restaurant’. Obvious be careful with food off the street.

The cafe is where locals come to eat cheap vegetarian food.
It is situated not far away from the main Dasaswamedh Ghat, on the road with the same name.. If you are coming from the Ghat up the steps the Dasaswamedh Ghat Road is in front of you and it's curves on the left, the Milan Cafe is in the curve on the right side of the road.. You can not miss it! The sign is obstructed and you can read it properly, but in front of it there are 3 burning stows, where industrious chefs are frying your dosas and other goodies...
but I think you will recognise it, as is always full. there is no doors or windows , actually no front of the shop, it is open space with small bar on the right side, where are 2 kinds dozen of sweets displayed for sale. The food is mostly south Indian and they have lasi as well.
the Cafe is open from 4am to 11pm. Early start is due to Pilgrims prayers and ritual baths in Ganges river
Favorite Dish: My fav dish are Dosa Masala,Paratha and rice & chappati plate. The dishes are Rs 25 per plate with some other ones going up to Rs60.

This restaurant is located at the Hotel Surya where I was staying. The actually building was built in 1818 and has been converted in to an air-conditioned luxurious heritage restaurant with a pool behind. They had a wedding reception going on around the pool whilst I was eating there. The food was very good with good service. They serve Indian and Chinese dishes.

This place caught my eye because of its name when I was wandering around to find places to eat near where I was staying at the Hotel Surya. I popped in to see what it was all about and had a spicy veggie burger and fries which arrived about 5 minutes after I ate the burger. It's a popular workmen like dinner place with guys standing around a counter eating and chatting.
