Staff greets you with a smile. They asked me for a drink and to beat the heat I opted for refreshing Kokam Sharbat. Next on the plate was hot, crunchy, crispy Kothimbir Chi Wadi. One of the best, I had in town! Highly recommended.

Tomato Saar was a great appetizer to pamper your hunger pangs! It was hot and spicy with strong flavours of kadhi patta, and red chilly.

Non Veg lovers can go for Malvani Kombdi Masala for starters. Chicken is perfectly marinated and grilled to perfection.

Main course had Bharli Wangi, Subz Kolhapuri, Veg Maratha and Sukkhi Bhendi with wheat butter roti.
Bharli Wangi was again a winner. Crushed peanuts and local masalas were adding flavours to it. I could not stop myself from eating more than my appetite.

Veg Maratha was a mix veg preparation in red gravy, bit on spicier side. Subz Kolhapuri, a mildly spice mixed veg dish was also good. It was a challenge for the Chef Amit Kumar for preparing Pandhara Rassa in veg and he fulfilled it. If anybody wants to have it, they can pre-order and relish the same rassa with vegetables.

Masale Bhaat, OMG! what flavours. Kaala masala especially was added to enhance flavours. Went well with varan, a simple tur dal with a tadka of ghee and asafoetida.

To end on a sweet note, Amrakhand, most awaited dessert was served. Rich, thick amrakhand with right amount of sweetness was surely a show stealer. It was garnished with dry-fruits for crunchiness.

Overall, a lunch worth visiting. Do not forget to make your Maharashtra day memorable this year with the scrumptious food and traditional ambience.
