I tend to think of cafes that cater to foreigners as unimaginative and not terribly good. This place disproves my prejudice. One of the best thalis in Rishikesh, filling, satisfying and not greasy -- and not at all expensive. You can sit in floor cushions...More

It is a must. It's really hard to find but it is definitely a restaurant to stop by, have some to eat and relax with the sound of guanga river.

Waited 2 and a half hours for a very mediocre meal. No excuses. The staff were all high, which is fine if they are able to function and do their job, which obviously they are not.
