Description: 'Agashiye' in Gujarati means on the terrace. This beautiful restaurant is spread over two huge terraces are inter-connected by a smaller one that houses a small wooden cottage. At Agashiye, the food is freshly prepared, a lot of it in the terrace kitchen where you can see it. Our attempt is to retain the distinct flavours of the ingredients and we use both spices and oil sparingly. The menu at Agashiye changes daily and varies seasonally too, so an item that you particularly liked during a previous visit may not be there on the menu. Though we hope you'd find another favourite!The staff at Agashiye comprises mostly of men from neighboring villages. During dinner, they will guide you to the waiting area where you will be served juice and starters. You will be informed when your table is ready. During lunch, you are seated at your table right away.The food is served in a kansa thali immediately on being seated at the table. The meal starts with a choice of Indian breads and ends with rice. Servings are unlimited. The staff has been instructed not to constantly hover around you and yet be attentive. In case you have a specific requirement, a supervisor will be there to assist you.Please don't be surprised if you are served a non-Gujarati dish or hear non-Indian music at Agashiye. It is neither an ethnic nor a theme restaurant. It is meant to be a dining experience in a contemporary Gujarati home.Agashiye can be booked for parties of up to 400 people with a buffet setting.

“Royal Dining Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

A great place where you can absorb and soak in some authentic Gujarati cuisine. Fantastic ambience, you just sit out and relax under the sky and let your gastronomical senses savor the authentic delicacies. The staff are very well trained and treat you with a royal touch. Food is pure vegetarian and you wouldn't mind relishing the greatness.

“An artificial collection of old Indian things”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

To somebody like me who has actually lived in old Indian buildings long enough, this place looks quite artificial. It is almost a collection of old Indian things put together only for the purpose of exhibiting them. For non Indians or those who are not familiar with little old ways of living in India, visiting this place is ok, but, I wouldn't recommend staying there - simply because the picture it portrays is away from reality (at any point in time).

They conduct a heritage walk for private groups. This walk is very informative. They charge Rs. 250/- per person (regardless of age). The walks happen twice a day at 8:00am in the morning and 9:30pm in the night. It happens between October and March.

There is another option for the same walk. It is conducted by the government and starts from AMTS. Both the walks start at 8:00am in the morning.
