Fodor's Expert Review Lotus Lounge

$ Varanasi International

There's a wonderful view from this simple outdoor terrace restaurant, which is right along the Ganges. The setting itself is simple—a mix of tables and chairs on white Moroccan tiles, and tables with floor seating; the only real adornment is a large mural of the Buddha. The food is as pleasing as the view, with an eclectic menu of dishes including chicken schnitzel, vegetable moussaka, Thai coconut curry, and mushroom makhani (made with lots of butter). The mushroom and spinach Indian pakoda (fritters) with fig dip and the eggplant slices with spicy yogurt sauce are both delicious.
