We got introduced to this restaurant by our autowala, as we were looking for a food joint with some delicious and special food, auto driver told “Sir je ek achi jagah lekar chalta huoon main”(I will take you to a good place). An outlet with small shop like entrance, furnished by wooden sofas and ragged material. Dim lights to make... More

The restaurant has a great menu and you enter expecting magic. It turns out to be a complete let down. They don't have any of the listed cheeses. The waiters do not understand the menu themselves and are sluggish. The food is nowhere close to what should be.

I visited the Brownie Green Cafe at the end of a morning sightseeing in Sarnath outside Vananasi. Our guide and Tuk- tuk driver thought that it was a good reliable restaurant for tourists. It was a disappointment. We waited 20 minutes for a drink and then a further 25 for the two cheese and tomato sandwiches that we had ordered.... More

Food was not as we accepted but the dinning area was comfortable a bit more improvement can make them best. Services were slow too. Staff must be smiled for a good impression.

ambience, location, exotic menu, superb cooking and reasonable prices are the hall mark of this place. They have such rear cheeses which are not easily available in India. The decor, the low seating and casual ambience made our evening a memorable one

We ordered Thali, and we waited for almost an hour for it to arrive. Aside from that, the price is quite hefty.. We should have visited an Indian family but because of the wait, we cancelled it... If you are pressed with time, don't bother visiting Brownie restaurant.

this restaurant was recommended by a hotel staff member and we were happy to be able to walk to get there. The décor was ok and menu sounded interesting . However, that is where our favourable impression stopped. it took forever to be served our food and once it was served, it was cold. The thalis were nothing to write... More

Food OK but up to 2 hours for delivery, a joke, They said they only had one oven. Don't bother coming here.

Varanasi is probably one of India's top 3 most visited places and there should be a law against eateries like this. Dirty, dinghy interiors...stale food...hopeless unapologetic service...you name it and they have it. We waited for over an hour for our order at lunch time with hardly any other patrons...received stale food nowhere near the ingredients mentioned in the menu.... More
