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.

“Only if you don't like Spicy food”
Reviewed December 10, 2012

I went for Green House after checking the ratings here. You get a wide variety to choose from but was shocked when "Tomato Soup" and "Hot-n-Sour" were missing from "Soups" under "International" section.
Food is not spicy at all. So, if you are a fan spicy food I recommend not to visit this place. Must be wondering, why?
We ordered Undhiyu (A traditional Gujarati preparation) and were trying it for the first time. Liked it.
Being Rajasthani, I wanted to have something spicy. So ordered Chana and Chhola Masala and requested to make it spicy. Even after that what I received was a sweet chana chhola. It was a total disappointment.
Other than that, the place is so close to main road that it was noisy.

“Good for substantial snacks and light meals”
Reviewed November 28, 2012

Part of the House of MG operation and a cheaper alternative to the roof top restaurant. The menu is quite limited in the evening, presumably so as not to compete with the main, roof-top, restaurant, but what was available was perfectly acceptable. Located outside in a pleasant courtyard/garden. Service is good and helpful.

“Great alternative to the House of MG Restaurant”
Reviewed November 25, 2012

If you can't get a table at the House of MG roof-top restaurant (both that and the Greenhouse are part of the same complex), then you could do a lot worse than grab something to eat here. I have to say the service down here on the ground floor is better than on the roof, that really stuck out for me. The other thing that stuck out were the cold drinks including, of course, the ubiquitous lime soda.

“Authentic Gujarati food in heritage surroundings.”
Reviewed October 26, 2012

Having a meal at Green house was an amazing experience. The service, the view and the heritage surroundings add to it. The food is exceptionally good. The taste of the food is outstanding.

“Nice Food, great Location”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

Since we stayed at the House of MG we had breakfast as well as lunch a few times at the Green House. Surely worth the money. Great Indian Dishes, one of the few places to sit and enjoy your meal outside in the middle of the old city.
