This is a well-known restaurant ideally located near the Ram Jhula Bridge. It's clean but a bit stark and the menu is fairly standard regional Indian fare. Tasty and reasonably-priced however.

Chotiwala is a very famous name across the Ganges river. Except for the ambiance, we could not enjoy anything. Slow service, mediocre food and a lack of enthusiasm among the crew members were few reasons that caused the disappointment. Good on paper.... reality?

to reach original Chotiwala, you have to cross Ram jhula and it is so crowded that it's a nightmare to cross it (only by foot allowed and 2 wheelers of the locals with special permit) please go through my review of Chotiwala.
