Magnolia Restaurant
Ranked #34 of 102 Restaurants in Mussoorie
Price range: US$3 - US$8
Description: The Magnolia Restaurant is part of Kasmanda Palace Hotel which is one of the oldest building and property in town with a very intereting history. Built in 1836. The Magnolia Restauarnt was named after the favourite flower of Late Rajmata Vidyawati Devi of Kasmanda. Who was the current owners great grand mother. She was an avid gardener and in the 1917 she set about landscaping the large grounds of the Kasmanda Palace. In the early 1920s she planted the beautiful Magnolia trees all around the garden. From the 1930s to 1960s she took a prominent part in organizing the Annual Flower Shows held at Mussoorie and would invariably be the top three winners. Some of the trophies awarded to her can still be seen in the Belvedere Lounge in the Hotel. Why dine in just any restauarant when you can dine in the lap of nature in the center of town indoor or outdoor. In our outdoor options you have various levels to sit and dine in complete privacy.

We (family of seven including parents aged around 80 years) were in Mussourie earlier in the week for 4 days.

Whilst we did not stay at Hotel Kasmanda Palace, we had lunch on two occasions here.

First thing that we liked that is they were very responsive on phone and provided a complimentary pick up from Mall Road. We arrived at the hotel and were delighted to see what is a beautifully maintained heritage property.

As there was a threat of rain, we had our lunch indoors in the restaurant on the first day. The hospitality was warm and the staff very courteous. The food (mix of veg and non-veg) was good.

On day 2, we returned and as the weather was perfect, we had lunch on the terrace. The views from here are amazing. The setting was perfect. We requested to meet the Chef who was very helpful and customised the food to our taste (one of us likes bland food and others liked it spicy and well done). The hospitality was warm and the entire experience was perfect.

On both days, we spent a lazy afternoon enjoying the gardens and the views from the terrace there whilst the food was being prepared.

As we really liked the ambience of the place and the hospitality, we also took the opportunity to see the rooms at the hotel. They have the ‘heritage’ rooms and the more modern rooms. The latter in a new wing. We liked both immensely but my personal choice would be the heritage rooms.

I strongly recommend Kasmanda Palace for stay and for meals.

We stepped in for a family lunch. We were staying elsewhere in Mussorie.

We were touched by how warmly we were welcomed at the hotel for a meal. They sent a car to pick us up at the Mall, a short but steep climb up!

We preferred to eat in the open as the weather was perfect.

It was very nicely laid out. The preparations were excellent, service, tops.

All in all, a must visit hotel, either to live here or to come for a meal.

The Palace itself is worth seeing with so much grandeur. Restaurant is within the Palace. It has an outdoor Seating area, where we had our lunch. Views were stunning and food was awesome too.
