“Testy food, Value for money”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2013

Very testy food and value for money with cooperative staff. But ambiance and seating capacity should be reviewed by their management.

“Traditional Gujarati Food - Good Test”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2013

Gordhan Thal is among one of the Best Gujarat Thali restaurant in Ahmedabad. I have been visiting them since 4 years and I am getting same test. Restaurant decoration is traditional and gives you feeling of Rajwadu Haveli. Staff is co-operative and cost is average too! I recommend this restaurant for Gujju Food lover :)

“Great Food, Great Ambience!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2013

The restaurant decor is reminiscent of the Havelis common to Gujarat & Rajasthan, with traditional Rajput motifs throughout. The welcome is terrific, where you are asked to wash your hands over a washing bowl held by a waiter - maybe the local nobility followed the same tradition. Charpoys placed outside the restaurant in the verandah make for a comfortable waiting space.

The food is rich, redolent with ghee, and does not end - attentive waiters are hovering nearby to ensure that they serve you as much as your plate and palate can hold! From the Farsaans to the mains to the desserts that usually are served in typical Gujarati style along with the food and not towards the end, it is a veritable vegetarian smorgasbord, with 3-4 mains (with the mandatory paneer preparation of course!), a choice of Dal / Kadhi, multiple breads (bhakri / bati / phulkas etc.) rice (if you still have space in your stomach) in the form of a delectable and desi-ghee laden khichdi, and the ubiquitous papads & pickles that are a hallmark of the delicious Gujarati cuisine. If you feel that you've packed a couple more pounds at the end of the meal, you definitely have - the food is definitely NOT for those watching their weight!

Only bit of a let-down was the relative lack of attention to children, but otherwise the service is very good.

Not entirely in the same class as Vishalla (for a complete rustic & traditional experience) or Shakahari (for fine -also read pricey- dining & light yet authentic food), but definitely worth at least one visit!
