We were a jain couple staying in club Mahindra next door. We opted to try this place for food. The jain food they provided was simple and tasty and freshly made. We had our breakfast and dinner there for 2 days. Paneer paratha and coffee...for breakfast and mix veg , shahi paneer for dinner along with phulka roti. We were happy and satisfied with the food and the serviceMore

This cafe is just beside club Mahindra resort on the main road which is located in kanatal, Uttrakhand. Cafe offers all cuisines. They also have rooms to stay above the cafe, however the condition are just ok. Opposite to this is the forest kaudia range....Don't expect A.c, fans or luxury things here.More

Definitely not worth staying !! Unclean rooms and dirty washroom. The food is just okay. The cleaning staff doesnt care if the sheets look dirty, infact they will confirm 10 times with you if you really want it to be clean.

We had Maggi and Omelette in the evening when temperature was 2 degree Celsius. The food was piping hot and comforting. As takeaway, we ordered butter chicken masala and parathas. The taste was average. It's a good option to have food as it's bang next...to Club Mahindra (where food is very expensive).More

Went here for breakfast as we checked out of a nearby camp. The food was very delicious and on time. Place is neat. Poori and Maggi was average, but half fried and omlette were pretty good. So was soda water and black coffee.

The forest cafe is just next to Club Mahindra Kanatal and a very few eateries in the area. We went with very little hope but were surprised by the evening snacks and decided to come again for breakfast. It so happened later that we ended...maximum of our meals at this place rather than at the resort. The food prepared was fresh and tasted great. The service was a bit slow but that’s given considering they prepare everything from scratch. Do give it a try when you are around next!More
