The Imperial Square Restaurant, Mussoorie

A Must Visit

We chanced upon this restaurant when we were looking for a place to have lunch as soon as we had reached Mussoorie, and we were so impressed with it that it became our regular haunt for the rest of the stay. The ambiance was cozy, seating very comfortable, the corner side tables overlooked the Mall road, and given that it was raining outside the view used to extremely beautiful. The restaurant also has a option for hookah, and a cafe too. The menu is vast ranging from American style breakfast, to Aloo Poori, to Paranthas, to Chinese, Indian and Continental for main course. The staff was courteous though the service could be improved.

Some of the things u must try are Paranthas, Aloo Poori and ‘Eggs Made to Order’ for breakfast. For main course you should definitely try Roast Garlic with Bamboo Shoots soup, Daal Makhani or Tadka along with Pudina Parantha/Amritsari Kulcha. We also tried their Veg Chinese Sizzler which was very amazing.

On Sat and Sun, they have a live performance too at night. The singer is a local talent but is indeed very talented. He will also sing songs on ur request thus making sure you definitely have a good time.

On the cost side, it does set you back a little. A meal for 6 costed us approx Rs 2000. But for the assured good time you have here, its worth it.

Masti @ Haveli restaurant, Sonepat

It was to be an ordinary birthday celebration at a nearby restaurant, until my saaleysaab suggested we go to Haveli restaurant in Sonipat. The idea got our fancy and we hit the road. After a 45 mins drive we reached the restaurant, and from the first look i was stunned. The restaurant was hugeeeee..indeed looked like a haveli. I had come across such ambience only in Pune till now – Rajwada and Greenpark in Baner, Pune. The interiors of the restaurant were even more beautiful. I just wanted to explore the place before sitting down for dinner but alas, we were running short on time.

Menu @ Haveli, Sonepat

The menu was in shape of a pankhi (nice idea). Being a pure veg restaurant the options were quite limited. We ordered Dal Makhani, Malai Kofta, Mix Veg, Kulchas, (soft) drinks and lassi.

Yummy food @ Haveli, Sonepat

The food was delicious and we ate to our heart’s content, until we could have no more. Yet the food was light on the stomach..there were absolutely no after affects – greasiness or any heaviness in the tummy. The meal for 5 costed Rs 1100 ONLY.
The place is worth every cent and minute spend here. If you havent been here yet, I strongly suggest u try it out.
