Lonely Planet review

Housed in a nearly 200-year-old heritage building, Hotel Surya’s excellent main restaurant has a colonial elegance, and on warm evenings you can eat out on the large lawn. Value for money, it's one of the best of Varanasi's top-end choices, offering a global hodgepodge that extends from Mexican and Thai to Chinese and Continental. But really, it's the Indian that's excellent, including a wonderful thali (₹280).
