Vadodara eatout’s – A list ..

Update: 19.06.2011

22nd Parallel have shifted to Jetalpur Road. they now have a bigger restaurant with more seats and crew to cater the bigger crowds 🙂 Food & Taste are better as always.

Bangs Chicken, Fatehganj  – Average but an alternate for KFC (since KFC is yet to open here)


Some Updates:
A few more additions to the restaurent lists:
That Place: Name is trendy and so is the ambience.
Mahakali Sev Usal have upgraded (its been more than a year – I didnt know about it until recently). They have an additional joint opened nearby to previous one, for the families, where they can sit n enjoy the food.I’d prefer the ‘original’ 😛

South Indian:
22nd Parallel – Next to Puran Singh’s. Nice delicious Authentic South Indian (TN & Karnataka) Cuisines. Try the Neer Dosa & Avial, And definitely the Dosas and Vadas. Crowded almost always – Sometimes you got to be patient.

Mid Range:
Rasa at Nidra Hotel is a good Mid-Range restaurent offerin Buffet and A-la-Carte.
Barbeque Inn at Race Course Circle has Emu in their menu. Barbeques have always attracted the crowd.

      A Kerala restaurant is Aramana at Subhanpura (Near to SBI branch) its pure veg but its authentic Kerala Cuisine.
      If u r looking non-veg then u’ve Periyar (but its costly.. very costly.. so not worth the money u spend on food)
      There is also a tattukada at Old sama Road. I’ve not tried eating there though, so dunno the quality of food.
      I recommend Aramana Restaurant

      I’d prefer Zaika over Mirch Masala and finally Kismat.
      Kismat is good but its always crowded. U actually cannot enjoy long enough when hanging out with pals.

    For non vegetarians : Green City, channi road is awesome !
    Zafraan at, Fatehgunj Main Road is GOOD (Chicken Lollipops is a must try item! )
    Jojo’s Hard Rock Cafe, Emperor Building, Fatehgunj is awesome but definitely costly!

    Try Apna Punjab, Next to L&T Circle, Petrol Pump ! ( Awesome Punjabi food )
    Darpi : Channi road ! is Simply Awesome for vegetarians and it is very reasonable too !!
