Super relaxed restaurant away from the main road with fresh juices and nice salads. Try the vegan chocolate brownie! They have swing dancing classes every Saturday and live music too. Worth a visit when you are close to Assi Gat.

The menu looks delicious but the presentation and taste is very average. We were also unfortunate enough to have construction noise relentlessly through our meal. However, it was a nice to finally get some salads and alternative milk. Ice is filtered water.

I’m vegan and that was a BIG surprise to find this place. I spent 2 days in Varanasi and went there for every meal. The food was delicious, good quality and good prices. The staff very nice!
