Description: The Green House cafe is located under a covered pavilion on the ground floor of the building. It serves freshly cooked Indian snacks, fresh fruit juices and home-made ice-creams. The open kitchen in one corner of the courtyard, our food theatre, is where you will see cooks preparing your meal in front of your eyes.The Green House cafe extends into an arched air-conditioned room that was earlier the 'buggy room' of the mansion - horse drawn buggies were in use till the early forties.On the menu you will find a variety of Indian snacks ranging from chaat, batakavada, patra and panaki to small meals of delicious Indian breads and vegetables. Most items are available as takeaways. The restaurant is open from 7:00 AM to 11:00 PM.

“Cosy atmosphere but nothing special...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2012

Maybe because I´ve heard so many good comments about the Greenhouse... my expectations were quite high. The atmosphere is good (and the restaurant at the roof-top has an amazing setting), but the food has nothing special. We went there a couple of times and we always paid an average of 300INR, definitely not good value for money. The positive side to it is that they have international dishes even though I wouldn´t recommend them because they are "Indian-international" so go for local food! Something extremely annoying is that they refused to give us change when we asked for it. We were a big group and wanted to pay separately and ... no change at all. And be aware of the donkey fund charges, something they add automatically to your bill if you don´t say anything! Not a restaurant I´ll be coming back to :(

“worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2012

the menu offers you almost everything. Ambiance is excellent.Being from south India, we ordered an appam and to our utter shock we were served a dosa in the shape of appam.so Its better to avoid South Indian and Rajasthani delicacies as we got a fried bhati with dal.Stick o gujarati cuisine and you will never forget the taste.

“Quite good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2012

The ambience, the decor, the setting and especially the food was quite good. We ate panipuri, handva, etc., and enjoyed what we ate. The staff is a bit slow in terms of following your request, but they serve with a smile and that sort of covers up.
