I was on bike trip with my friend. We really enjoyed the south Indian food there. Spices used were giving really nice flavor. Ambience is not so lavish which is not required either. As restaurant is just on the side of main Kathgodam- Nainital highway, parking space is limited. It is very near to Kathgodam railway station. We relish the... More

Whenever we are going Nainital from Haldwani or vice versa, this is a must place to have meals. They prepare good south Indian food & it is good to have it while going for long drive

It is a must stop over while coming back or going up in the mountains from Kathgodam railway station. The food is good enough to linger in your mind for long. The place is clean, service is fast and prices are reasonable. If you are planning to stop here before catching your train (Shatabdi mostly), please spare some time as... More
