Much frequented by Bollywood celebrities and other famous personalities, the fast food stall is always teeming with food lovers pouring in from all corners of the city. Favorites include samosa puri, aloo chaat, bhel puri and tomato chaat, among other equally appetizing and flavorsome items.

Some of the items they serve are Dahi Bhalla, Aloo Tikki, Paani Puri, Papri Chat, Mixed Chat and Dahi Masala Chat. In their sweet menu, Rabri Jalebi is the best. It has a typical Banarasi taste. The place is very small but is well maintained and clean. The prices are kept as low as possible so you can come here often with a gang of friends and enjoy munching some tasty snacks.
Within close proximity of Dasashwamedh Road and the ghats lies the Phulwari Restaurant and Sami Cafe, a little haven which offers diners a cozy respite from the abrasive crowds of the city. Acclaimed for its interesting menu, expect to find a lineup of Mediterranean delicacies such as falafel, as well as the usual Italian suspects- pasta, lasagna and others. Their shady garden is a fine spot to catch up with travelers and exchange notes.
Located a few minutes away from the Kashi Vishwanath Temple, the Raj Bandhu Sweet Shop is buzzing with activity during all times of the day. Selling the choicest sweetmeats in town at fixed rates, you can even sample a few of the usual suspects such as gulab jamun, jalebi, motichur laddoo and others. Spicy deep-fried snacks that Indians consume at tea time are also on offer. This shop is hard to miss because of the line of policemen who sit right by the entrance to guard the little streets leading up to the temple.
Run by the Japanese woman Megu, along with her Indian business partner Sanjay, the Megu Cafe offers diners a restful break from the chaotic alleys outside. This cozy restaurant boasts an exciting and authentic menu where all of the dishes are prepared by a skillful Japanese cook. Cute wooden chairs and tables with glass tops make for a pretty picture while the chopsticks invite the initiated to try their hand at it! While Japanese tourists understandably flock here, locals and others are not left behind. Closed on Sundays.
