Don't be fooled by the hype and hoopla about this place because nothing other than location works put for this place. This is insanely crowded, extremely costly for the value, service and the ambience they offer. Food is oily, and not ''aunthetic', by any stretch of imagination. Avoid!

Vaishali, the name rings business and waiting time. But it is all worth the wait and hassle. The location is prime but there is always a issue with parking. There is always a waiting time of half an hour on any day at any time. This is because the food is pretty good and it makes up for the service... More

Heard a lot about Vaishali. But it was disappointing. They only serve dosas (snacks). Even a plain dosa costs Rs 100/-. There is no innovation in their dosas either, so I guess it would be just like the dosa from the corner kiosk, but at a very expensive price!

If you visit Pune, you may some find some time to visit this landmark hotel to taste authentic South Indian snacks (like dosa, idli sambar, etc.) as well as to try typical indian fast food (like sev batata puri, bhel, etc.). Only veg. food is available.

Punekars love this restaurant. The fan following and the location draws big crowd. 1. Average waiting time in the evening can be 45 min or more. 2. No privacy due to closely packed tables in the garden area. 3. I can't enjoy food if waiting customers at the back are discussing how soon you can finish up! 4. Some of... More
