Been here twice and tried the dosas. Never again. The dosas are hard, fillings are horrible. Nothing close to real dosas.!

We had lunch on our way back from trekking, we found this nice restaurant. The menu offers traditional indian dishes from different regions, everything was perfect, amazing food for an average price. We were well taken care of

Very good classical Indian food. Great location for those travelling by rickshaw as it is next to the rikshaw stand at Ramjhula. The cafe might not look attractive from outside, it is actually cozy somehow and they have one table outside.

Clean, friendly, serving delicious food. Ate there all the time! Lemon, honey, ginger tea is the best. Delicious pancakes. Great curry - goes without saying!

The ambiance is calm. One can easily connect to your laptop and keep working. The cafe has free WiFi. Food is just too good. One shouldn't miss their fresh juices. It is a real value for money restaurant. They sell souvenirs too.

Hands down the best food in Rishikesh. Gaurav Agarwal, the son of the owner, is super funny and became a friend. He once even brought the food to the house where we stayed at. Definitely go eat there when you visit Rishikesh, I highly recommend...More

Ate here couple of times. good food and service. clean and tasted fresh. can get busy at lunch time, but u can always join another table if there's a free seat left at a table if you are solo, seems common practice here.

I went here for lunch and dinner, and at lunch we had a waiter that was very unfriendly. Maybe he was just having a bad day, but it made the expereince much less pleasant. Food was healthy and pretty good.
