... that's the highlight of this tiny cheap restaurant, strongly recommended by all the travel websites. The owners are also very lovely and reliable with their customers, lassi here is delicious.

Having previously travelled to Agra with memories of sharks and rip off merchants, the staff at Shankaras, were friendly, relaxed and went out ot their way to be genuinely helpful. The food especially the omelettes and vegetarian curries was superb and worth the wait to be made from scratch. Highly recommended.
