Lot of friends recommended this place for non-veg thali, hence decided to visit. Food was delectable. The thali concept is unusual as compared to other places in Kolhapur. Definitely a must visit.

Whenever in Kolhapur, whether vegetarian or non-vegetarian food I prefer to have atleast one meal at this famous restuarent. The thali is very sumptous and deliscious. The tmbda rassa and pandhra rassa... the signature dish of Kolhapur can be tasted best at this place.

Had heard many good reviews about Opal restaurant, so decided to have lunch there and curb our hunger pangs. Opal restaurant has a good ambience and service. Famous for chicken mutton cuisine. Chicken masala gravy was delicious. We were served the well known tambda rassa, pandhra rassa as sample. Dishes are a bit expensive and the quantity limited. People with... More

Being a foodie and lived in Kolhapur for 6 long years ,i had been loving the Mutton of Hotel Opal. Since last few years it has lost its authentic taste. Mutton handi or muttton fry was rubbery ,juiceless with bland curry. The Kaleji fry was yuck. Chapatti s were a disaster. Sitout was gloomy and it felt like sitting in... More

Located next to the big mall on the old kohlapur-Bangalore highway is this very unpretentious restaurant that states it is a dining hall and resembles one. Each table has steel thalis and servers load on accompaniments. The food covers a wide range of ethnic meat and chicken offerings, the famed rassa and a good vegetarian fare too. All items we...
