An incredible transformation as you walk in from the loud street into a serene, beautifully decorated restaurant.

The whole experience has been thought out and implemented perfectly, from the ambience to the service to the food. I would recommend anyone who likes Indian cuisine to go.

Beautifully decorated restaurant serving immaculately cooked new age Indian gourmet food. It's obvious the management are heading for something special with this place. If you want to experience something different this is definitely the new place in town to be at. The staff have been excellent on our visit and have a great understanding of the food and drinks they are serving. A cut above the other Indian restaurants in town!

The decoration is outstanding, such good taste and very inviting. Food and service was also excellent. My only criticism would be the bill, I do feel it is rather overpriced as they charge for the slightest smallest thing ie the sauces to go with the pappadums surely it should be one cost and not a separate which was a bit steep and also the service charge, surely this should be optional. Dont get me wrong, I dont mind paying for great food but it should be fair and not be overpriced.

Excellent ambience and great music. Service was fantastic and food was on point! I love the food each dish speaks for it's own ... the presentation is mouth watering. I would definitely recommend this restaurant perfect for any occasion as they also have private rooms.

The service was very attentive, and a great balance of friendly and professional - among the best we have ever experienced. We had a set menu which worked well for a group, was nicely presented and delicious. I will make a point of recommending Varanasi and taking friends and family back to share the experience. .

Some of the food was served slightly cold but we made do as there was 14 of us. However for the price I'd expect that they would be able to cater for a slight larger party for dinner.

They tried cancelling the booking however managed to squeeze us in when we arrived at the original time slot.

I've been here before and it was amazing but was slightly let down this time due to the above.

Thanks

Food was amazing. Service was mixed. The decor is lovely but it is not very busy so it felt a bit weird.
It was £120 for starters, mains and 3 drinks each.

It was a beautiful restaurant. I was not happy with one thing when entering nobody was on reception floor to take us to our reserved seat we waited for about 8 minutes as we decided to walk through restaurant and try and locate someone we found staff members. Apart from that the service and food was expectional slightly expensive but worth every penny.

After seeing reviews online I decided to book a table for 6 for my 28th birthday for my family and I as a celebrity meal.

On arrival the lady on reception and lounge stated that our table was not ready and will take some time. No complimentary drinks were provided. The venue itself was beautiful and the decor was amazing.

Our booking was made at 8:00pm we was not seated u too 10:00pm. The staff stated they were very busy this evening but the waiting time just became ridiculous! As you can imagine we were very hungry at this point.
Around 10:30 we were told our order did not go through on their iPads and that we would have to order again. We were every hungry at this point and argued with staff to get something out for us to eat. At first the waiter stated that he would bring out some starters that we would have to pay half for.
Our mains did not arrive until 11pm at this point we did not care about the food and just wanted to eat and leave! We ordered drinks to our table which was forgotten about and we had to remind staff of our drink orders.

We left after half past 12 and no body was in the restaurant. Once we came outside we were faced by all the clubbers and party (drunk) people, forced our way out of the entrance of restaurant where public stood, which was not very nice, especially as we was with family. We did not receive any discount off our food other than free starters. It this was a disaster of a birthday meal and has left a bad memory.
