bad paratha

Went there because of Lonely Planet and was very disappointed. Staff was superfriendly but you could tell that they only expected a good tip from a tourist. Paratha was the worst I had in my 2 month travelling in India.

We went to Hoshiyar Puri for lunch, and liked their food so much, that we went back the same day for dinner. The service is good, even if you happen to be there at rush hour, and the food a delight. We had a couple of veggies and dals, with lachha parathas and tandoori rotis/naans. The lachha parathas were especially... More

Hoshiyar Puri is definately one of the best restaurant in Haridwar. We had dinner at this restaurant twice during our stay in Haridwar in November 2014. Sitting area is a little bit cramped but the food served is hot and yummy and real value for money. Liked their paneer, rajma, dal makhni, lassi, kheer etc. This place is always crowded... More

Prices are good. The restaurant itself could do with a bit of a spring clean although thd small mouse running around near our table... More

Hoshiarpuri Hotel (as the the title says) has been serving the city for more than 5 decades. People have been coming here for generations, and they have returned satisfied to come back again and again. Sure, it used to be a great place to visit probably 1-2 years back, but not now. I had been a fan of their Lachcha... More

The food here is Punjabi food in its truest form. Anyone from Northern India will find it excellent as the cuisine is exactly what 'Cooks' make at home during festivities and religious functions. For me it was remembrance of my childhood days. The dishes are not colored nor very oily. Visitors from Southern states or Maharashtra may not find this... More
