Fodor's Review

Behind the colonial facade of the Surya Hotel, the Canton Royal is a simple but elegant restaurant, with vaulted ceilings, statues, and framed pictures of Benaris royalty. The menu is eclectic, spanning European, Mediterranean, Mexican, and Chinese, but the Indian is the best—and this is one of the few restaurants in Varanasi that serves nonvegetarian food. The tandoori chicken and mutton curry are both delicious, and the aloo dum Banarsi (potatoes stuffed with

paneer in a spicy tomato gravy), a dish native to Varanasi, is recommended. You can dine inside or in the lovely gardens.
