“Excellent Thali !”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2012

Huge restaurant serving all kinds of food. The choices in various thali's was quite amazing and the price was good so we decided to visit.
The place was very clean. So were the toilets, which is usually a good reference.
The service was quick and the ordered food, two punjabi veggie thali's, was delicious.
Good portions, neither of us could finish.
The place was packed with mostly Indian families and very busy.
Will certainly return when back in Rishikesh !

“Delicious Food. Efficient Service. One Dissapointment.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 May 2012

The food was traditional Indian food, and there was a statue in front of the restaurant, depicting a man holding 'thalis' (plates) with real food in them. There was curry and some food that I don't know about, and Indian bread. The staff was O.K. The only bad thing was that there were some insects that could bite you... luckily nothing happened to me - they should improve at that, though.

“overhyped”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 May 2012

We had heard lots about the restaurant before we'd left Delhi so had to visit it once. The place is like a dhaba. Extremely unclean and unhygenic. The food however tasted fine but only as long as you don't see how its being cooked.

“Terrible Food... Pathetic Service”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2012

We had heard a lot about Chotiwala, and reached there after the Aarti, only to realise that the food was really pathetic, most of us had our Stomachs upset next day. The service is also quite bad.... and even after the pathetic service they expect a tip !!!!
