Once upon a time there existed a LOTUS LOUNGE. Not anymore. The place has turned into a yoga centre. However, Ganges view is good.

A great place to spend a relaxed evening with friends and family, Lotus Lounge is a rooftop restaurant overlooking the beautiful Mansarowar Ghat. Serving a delectable array of Asian, Indian and international cuisine, the place has a chilled out ambience.

If you want pizza n other western food they serve good pizza n other foods here. I recommed you must drink their nana mint. Its very delicious as i drank 2 glasses of it..if you are in big group you need to be very very patients as it takes time to serve your food...other wise its good.

View was great overlooking the river. Was definitely disappointed in the food. Not too much of a different selection than any other restaurant in Varanasi. Had high hopes but haven't been back since we weren't so impressed on the first visit.

Been there today at about 5 pm and it was closed, but there are drinks in the fridge so it may be open soon again. Maybe we have been there on the wrong date or time.

This restaurant was in a great location. It is up high enough to be cool and you can get away from the heat of the day. The menu is varied and would suit most tastes. It is clean and I enjoyed the food.

We went to this place on recommendation from Lonely Planet and found it was closed. Another shop owner said that government officials had closed it down due to them not having correct permits for opening in the first place?? Not sure if this is correct though.

Unfortunately the Indian chef left in December and the restaurant is now closed - bit of a pain having walked along the Ghats to find it ! We walked back and ate in the Dolphin. A hike up the stairs but a very good view and good value food. Would recommend this one if you aren't keen on walking through... More

It was like an oasis among all the dirty streets. Breakfast was very nice. It has a beautiful view of Ganga!

I came here a couple of times just to relax, read my book and take in the great Ganges view. Really nice breakfast options and great coffee! Highly recommend lotus for a break from the hustle and bustle of Varanasi.
