Staying at Ganga Kinare was an exceptional experience. The service offered by Saurabh, Deepak, Vinod and Suraj was a cut above brilliance. I would strongly recommend everyone to come and experience the same first hand as the hotel offers everything which a traveller would be...looking for. Their restaurant offered exactly what Indian pallette demands for. Truly a lifetime experience.More

If you are a fan of beautiful views this is the place, if you love having great food this is the place. They serve amazing vegetarian food be it their chole kulche, fried rice chilly paneer gravy was made with perfection 😍 And with their...view nothing can go wrong at all. In dessert we tried their jaggery halwa which was served with vanilla icecream tasted great . You need to try that. I am glad I went there for my lunch. Totally loved everything. Drinks were good too. Tried their fruit punch which was thick kind of a shake and also their Quesadilla were yummy. The staff was great too. Service was quick. 💯 Totally recommend this place.More

The food at Jal & Jalebi is the best vegetarian food around. It's a multi cuisine restaurant at Ganga Kinare. Right from breakfast to dinner, this restaurant is buzzing with the right energy. The music is soft sprituals mantras or bhajan which adds to the...soothing atmosphere. And the place was lit and I just loved the place and food. View was so beautiful and staff qast so polite and prompt. We tried many things like:- Amritsari Kulcha:- Amritsari kulcha were so delicious and amazing, full of flavour and full if spices. Must try Hara bhara kebab:- Kebabs were too tempting and texture was perfect, presentation was really amazing. Highly Recommended Chilly Paneer:- My Favourite, I juts lived the chilly paneer and flavour was just awesome. You have to try this Overall had a really good time would definitely recommended this place for some lips making food.More

Jal and Jalebi is a multi cuisine restaurant at Ganga Kinare, A Riverside Boutique Hotel Rishikesh. Right from breakfast to dinner, this restaurant is buzzing with the right energy. The music is soft spiritual Mantras or Bhajans which adds to the soothing atmosphere. Food is...very well prepared, I tasted Chinese, Continental and of course, Indian and was happy with the preparation as well as the presentation. I did not expect a restaurant in Rishikesh to be serving in 5 STAR style of Metros.Chef Deepak Bhatt is very talented and Mr Saurabh Aswani, Fnb Head is very helpful and is always around to check if all OK. I loved my breakfast at outdoor seating of the restaurant enjoying amazing views of The Ganges and Rajaji Park. Enjoyed dinner indoors with soulful flute being played by artist. Overall, Jal and Jalebi is one restaurant where you can have a very satisfying meal anytime of the day. And do try their Gharwali Thali as well. Pizzas are done perfectly. Coffees are fabulous. Absolutely a must visit dining destination.More

Let Me Be Blunt and Use This 100 Words To My Liberty and Express My True Opinion,I Went To This Restaurant Bcz There Other Branch Recommended Me,Well Unlike there Crappy Starter which I will Eventually Adress,Let Me Get This Straight The Infrastructure Was Good and...I Liked The Overall Vibe of the Restaurant,and Now Everything Other Than that Is Worst,First The Indian Thali I Ordered Was Tasteless Starting With A Weird Starter I mean I Understand The Soup Being Tasteless but Wth was That kabab it Was Worst I have ever eaten in my life and Mind You The cost Of the Thali Is 850,and Then Coming To The real Disaster,The Thali Itself I Mean Why Would I go to a Restaurant For Eating Yellow Dal and Hari Sabzi and other vague Vegetables, But Still I Could Have Ignored Everything But Man even There Staff Was Arrogant and Unprofessional,Waited 30 Mins for Chapati And He Comes With One Chapati On A Table Of 3 And Then Vanishes And My Friend Has To Search Him And Then when I ask To Call The mangaer,He makes me wait Another 20 mins and Doesn't Bother To show up,And Then Ultimately I Left my Food In Between and asked For the Bill,and The waiter vanishes again,I waited for 5 minutes again and Now i'have Had It Bcz There Is Absolutely Nobody Responding and Then We Decided To walk Out In hopes That Somebody Respond's, Guess What We walked Out without Giving The Bill and They Still Don't Give A Damn.You Have Ruined My Friends Birthday,I Will Never Recommend this restaurant to anyone.More

We visited here yesterday for lunch and ordered 2 thaali, only 1 or 2 item was good and lassi was also good but the worst part was the staff they don't even care about the customer they offered water only once, even asking for multiple...time for water they didn't serve sp we have to drink the lassi instead of water. We asked them for extra bread there was no one,one of my friend go to staff but they didn't respond. After ruining our day we asked for bill but they are lacking here also, didn't get the bill after waiting for 5-10min we called the manager but he was busy in having the food from last 30min.we asked for manager 2.3 times but no response it seems like they were not paying attention towards their customers,even in small restaurant they ask multiple time if anything needed. But here the worst service ,the food was not also good, not so co-operative staff. I recommend if you are planning to visit here please reconsider another place.More

Yes, they do have a breakfast buffet. I’m not sure of the timings. I would guess 6:30-10 or so.
