Every other day, a new club or café is being opening in Jaipur and this sector is growing like anything in Jaipur and overall India.
At a club or café, you may get word class ambiance to enjoy, best class DJs and music to groove, fine dining to serve your hunger. But what will be missed here is the desi food palate which you can only get at desi dhabas in Jaipur and that too on a budget.
We have, thus, compiled a list of the best dhabas in Jaipur. So, get a break from the lights and shine of clubs/cafés and visit one of these dhabas this weekend.
Sharma Dhaba is the most visited and loved dhaba in Jaipur which is a food heaven for vegetarians. The ambience with outdoor seating is nice and being located on the highway adds more to it. It is a perfect road-side dhaba with delicious veg food. Mawa Naan and Kulhadi Lassi is the most asked food item at Sharma Dhaba.
Khadelwal Dhaba is located on the same road just opposite to Sharma Dhaba and tie with Sharma Dhaba in terms of food, quality and popularity. The place has decent seating and is ideal to visit with family or friends. The food is really good and served at a very reasonable price. Sev tamatar ki sabzi, Jungli roti with lehsun ki chutney is a must try at Khandelwal Dhaba.
One of the oldest dhabas in Jaipur, located in Nehru Bazar on MI Road, Neelam Dhaba’s food is tasty and at par. Also, it is pocket-friendly so just perfect for visiting with friends and family. Students of Maharaja College and people residing nearby have fond memories at Neelam Dhaba. Aloo gobhi and paneer bhurji are the most loved dish served here.
Raja Park is the food paradise for foodies in Jaipur. It has numerous dhabas old and new famous for their mouth watering dishes. Hanuman Dhaba is one of the oldest dhabas in Raja Park and maintains its authentic taste till date. It’s in the middle of the market so this could be a quick stop-over while going through the area. Dal Makhni and Rumali Roti rae the favorites here.
Located in Lal Kothi, near the Vidhan Sabha, Ganesh Bhojnalya is again one of the oldest dhabas in Jaipur. The food here is too cheap and delicious. This is always a perfect place for hostelers and college students and anyone who always are in a cash crunch. Tandoori Roti and Dal Fry is the most ordered food at Ganesh Bhojnalya.
Khandelwal dhaba Sanganer:
Of the two Khandelwal dhabas overlooking the airport, the one inside the lane is an old dhaba place but they got a large sitting space and offer extremely delicious food. When one is not in the mood for the highway, this could be an ideal place to satiate your desi cravings. Aloo Pyaaz ki sabzi and Masala papad is what people rush here for most of the times.
Gopi Pavitra Bhojnalaya:
Gopi Pavitra Bhojnalaya is among the most popular dhabas in the old city of Jaipur. Located at the busy street of Chaura Rasta, they serve the best dishes with great taste.
They also have a separate air conditioned sitting facility for family. Ambience is nice, the service is good and the taste is excellent. One should give a try at Gopi to crave their desi food hunger.
Mohan Restaurant at Nehru Bazar, MI Road is also among the oldest of dhabas in Jaipur serving mouth-watering dishes at nominal prices. This is a pure vegetarian restaurant which serves purely old indian style dishes. The restaurant is a must try with delicious food serving and nice ambience. They have a proper sitting facility for families as well.
