Located on the banks of River Ganga. Food is okay.. Staff is good.. but this place needs maintenance.

There are couple of fake CHOTIWALAs in Haridwar, so make sure you find and enter the real one. That being said, food at this place is quite good. Do try the lassi and cholle-bhature.

Prices of food items are exorbitant. Food is extremely oily and service waiting period is 30 minutes.

Well not very much exicited about Chotiwala Haridwar as they did not had the famous Chotiwala sitting outside the restaurant. This gives a doubt about the originality. However the food was good but not outstanding

Chotiwala of the renowned fame has nothing good or different to offer except the aloo puri which were also not upto it standards. The restaurant is just an overhyped name now since the food quality has decreased manifolds.
