Our friends surprised us with a visit one evening to this venue. Lit up with lanterns we followed the magical pathway to the village theme restaurant. Puppet show, musicians, gujarati swing seat were enjoyed before washing our hands with hand poured jugs of warm water and offered seating on mats at low tables. (Note - you can ask for normal chairs/table height if required)
Traditionally dressed waiters ensured we had ample food from begining to end on our sewn leaf plates with Thaili style eating. Butter milk & water were served in clay cups. The food was beyond delicious. Depth of flavours in each dish were fantastic and a lovely assortement of food. (all veg) The sort of food that you close your eyes and savour each mouthful. Highly reccomended.

It is a unique place away from the regular world of glass & steel. The rural earthen design & ambiance, traditional crafts bazzar, rural music, folk dances, puppet shows etc gives the place a very rural hinterland ambiance. They have recreated the rural western India successfully in Ahmedabad. You can enjoy food in a traditional way sitting on the floor & get unlimited supply of what you relish. You must visit this place if you want to get some good insight into the rural life. The food is good, but there are other places in Ahmedabad which can give you better Gujarati cuisine. This shortcoming is overcome by the great ambiance.

Vishala is a unique experience ... it really transforms you into a bygone era. The decor, setting, ambiance is like a village and even the food is served in traditional way. Little similar to Chowki Dhani concept near Jaipur ... You must visit this place when you are in Ahmedabad.

Amazing place, have to get to know the process once you go inside though -- pay and then wait for your name to be called. If you miss this, you'll be running around trying to get a hold of the right guy. Once you're taken to the waiting area (campfire in our case), they'll give you a nice refreshing drink. Then once you're seated and the food starts coming, you're in for a pleasant shock :-) the sheer variety of it all and then, the taste! It is all so so good! Right after, walk around (recommended you walk back to the hotel too :-D), sit by the campfires and enjoy the magic show, music show or the puppet show. An awesome end is the digestive date with masala they give you and the ice cream (which we didn't have any space for). An absolute must do in Ahmedabad.
