As I visit Kolhapur regularly I have been to various restaurants for tambda pandhra rassa. But nothing like OPAL. In Opal you'll get best Tambda Pandhra rassa with Mutton Suke, Mutton Masala, Mutton Pulav, Bhakri and Mutton Pickle. Mutton Pickle of Opal is 'WOW'.

I have lost count of the number of times I have had lunch or dinner at this landmark restaurant of Kolhapur. This time, it was lunch and we opted for the vegetarian Thali. Fresh hot and spicy dishes served ever so affectionately made for a wonderful dining experience. I opted for jowar bhakri instead of the regular chapatis and ordered... More

Was in Kolhapur for work and wanted to grab a couple of beets with my colleague. Found this place on TripAdvisor. The location is central. Went to the bar of this hotel. The ambience is average and service is decent. Had 3 beers and tandoori chicken. Nothing to talk about but overall decent at the price.

We had lunch at Opal a few days back. We had mutton kheema, mutton sukka and mutton pickle...everything was delicious. Also tried the tambda and pandhra rassa which is a speciality. Would definitely recommend eating here if you are in this area.
