There at the entrance of the Hotel you will find a Chotiwala ( Saint with tail) inviting you. This hotel is very old based in Rishikesh Lakshman Jhoola.

Also visited the Chotiwala restaurant as it was close to our hotel (La Casa). Restaurant's ambience is ok, good service & above all good & tasty food. Their Masala Tea was awesome.

An ISO 9001 certified restaurant and basic facilities with cost effective food. Good place for budget eating near RAMJHULA, Rishikesh.

Tested south Indian Breakfast items (Masala Dosa, Onion Uttapam and Bada) and North Indian thali for meals. Food tests good but they serve food when you'll die out of appetite.

This place serves decent north indian food though this is not meant for faint of heart as hygiene and cleanliness is not at the top of list of priorities here. People will also be put off by smell around this place

The Chotiwala is a Haridwar landmark and I have eaten here before in the 1980s and 1990s but my latest visit turned out to be disappointing. Not in a mood for a lavish spread, we just ordered Tandoori roti and Dal Makhani. The roti was half baked and tasted funny and the dal tasted like warm water. Very disappointing.

After having good experience at Chotiwala in Rishilkesh, I again visited chotiwala at Haridwar, this time food quality was worst, ambiance was not good, service was poor. I was shocked with the two different experience under the same brand name.

Best food provided in Rishikesh. This restuarant has good variety of foods.This restaurant location is also very good, near Ramjhoola so food can be enjoyed after attending Ganga Aarti at Parmarth.
