My TripAdvisor Review No.58: Hotel Ruchi Park, Satara. (on NH4, 28 km north of Satara)

“Highway 'dhaba' on NH4, near Satara.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed 29 December 2014
We were driving from Bangalore to Pune and needed to stop for lunch after passing Satara. About 28 km from Satara moving towards Pune we saw a somewhat decent looking restaurant on the left side of the road and decided to have a bite here.

I ordered a mixed vegetable with tandoori roti and it was tasty enough. However when my wife asked for sandwiches she drew a blank even though it was listed on the menu. It seems they serve sandwiches only for breakfast! We also asked for buttermilk, which at Rs.25 a glass seemed exorbitant.

Before resuming our drive I wanted to use the washroom. A good highway restaurant must maintain a clean washroom to separate it from the ‘dhabas’ of the world. Unfortunately ‘Ruchi Park’ failed the test as the washroom was not well maintained and all the faucets seemed to be leaking, probably due to overuse by the multitude of bus passengers which were stopping here.
