Good food but nothing great

Heard a lot about it before going to Haridwar but was disappointed when the waiter said there is no speciality of their restaurant. Good food but it is overhyped. Too many chotiwala restaurant to distinguish the original one. No speciality .General menu

Actually there are 2 chotiwala restaurant, and no one can justify which is right one, but anyway in both food are good testy. North Indian are must try, like aloo tiki and puri sabji, in sweet gulab jamun and halwa is must try. USP is person with full make up with a long 'choti' seating outside the restaurant. .
