Restaurant's Favourite
Reviewed 1 February 2021 via mobile

I visited two days back Varr Restaurant in Rishikesh and was amazed to see the delightful decor, how much pains have been taken to incorporate decor items which one finds in temples like musical instruments, etc. This goes with the theme of the food served...here - thali having 22 dishes or more, each dish inspired from the temples of India, from Kashmir to Kanyakumari. The menu is different for every thali, I had Utsav and Anandam Bhog Thali and I relished every dish. Even pickles and starters are different for every themed thali. Dining starts with a ritual of washing hands and then charnamrat is served at the table. Smoky butter milk is the signature beverage here, not to be missed. I also loved Chana dal kitchdi with dollops of pure ghee. Multi grain Bejar ki roti and Ragi idli is worth trying. Mohan Thal, Lord Krishna 's favorite sweet is also served. In Naivedyam Thali, you will get to taste delicacy Pallad, Uttarakhand popular drink. From kitchens of Jagannath temple, there is an inspired dish, Enduri - rice dumplings wrapped in Banana leaf served with Dalma. You need to partake this kind of Bhog yourself to believe it. No onion, no garlic. Amazing food. Outstanding concept. Visit Rishikesh to taste the food at Varr. Executive Chef, Deepak Bhatt and FnB Head, Saurabh personally explained the dishes and made my dining experience special. They are seen in the picture I have put up here.More

Following the review in the March edition of the Outlook Traveller magazine,I visited the Varr restaurant on 2 consecutive days. Two separate menu thalis dedicated to the Temple food delicacies of India and I was pleasantly surprised.This was delicious,finger licking food.All their milk products are...of top quality so their dahi,paneer,buttermilk and ghee cooked items like khichadi and some desserts are very tasty.Well curated menus and their different variety of rotis/puris and vegetables are top notch.Hats off to Chef Amit Rayal for researching on this interesting concept.Mumbai thali lovers please note that refills are on request and not like Mumbai places which automatically fill up on completion of an item..the South Indian temple like the coconut payasam and the Veg Stew were not upto the mark which was the only negatives from the 25 food items I tried over the 2 days.And all food without onion and garlic.A must visit on anyone’s Rishikesh itineraryMore
