My TripAdvisor Review No.62: Kalyani Veg Restaurant, Pune.

“Popular restaurant serving wholesome food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 24 January 2015 NEW
This popular vegetarian eatery is located in Kalyani Nagar just opposite Big Cinemas (Adlabs), and across the Aga Khan Bridge coming from Koregaon Park. It is always crowded at meal times and you may have to wait your turn till you get seating. There is very limited parking space for 4 wheelers near the restaurant.

Take the help of the usher to find you a table. He will find you one within 5 or 10 minutes in the general (non ac) section, if you don’t mind sharing the table with other diners. Once seated you are served within 10 to 12 minutes after placing the order. There is an ac section too, with about 10 to 12 tables, but with a slight mark-up in the menu. The tables and service are better in the ac section, almost akin to a fine dining restaurant.

Coming to the food, this restaurant serves both South and North Indian, Chinese and some Continental dishes. However they are best known for their Udipi fare and the idlis, wadas, dosas, utthappas served with the traditional sambar and chutnies are excellent. Their Punjabi dishes served with tandoori rotis, rice and biryanis are also very good. They have a variety of tasty Pao-bhajis, including a Jain Pao-bhaji. I cannot comment on the Chinese food as I have never tried it here.

The restaurant opens at 8 am and closes at 11 pm. One can visit them for breakfast, lunch or dinner, or even for an in-between snack. With so many offices, shops and commercial establishments nearby this restaurant is always crowded and bustling with activity and probably the most popular restaurant in this locality. The prices of the items are also reasonable and good value for money.
