Chandravilas Restaurant Serves The Best Crispy Yummy Jalebis in Ahmedabad

Chandravilas Restaurant Serves The Best Crispy Yummy Jalebis in Ahmedabad

I was on the Amdavad (Ahmedabad) Morning Heritage Walk with a Professional Tour Guide. The Heritage walk started from Swaminarayan Temple at 8:10 am and finished at Chandravilas restaurant at 10:10 am.

Because I opted for a luxury package that includes breakfast, that’s why the tour was ending at Chandravilas restaurant.

I enter. Upon request from our tour guide Vishal, I was served a thali full of Fafda, Khaman (dhokla), methi bhajiya, Kadhi, and chatni.

Fafda was very crispy and Jalebi was too good, but the only regret – there was only one jalebi. One was not enough. I wish 3-4 pieces of jalebi were there because it was too good in taste and crispy and hot.

The best thing about Chandravilas restaurant is that it is 120 years old. Imminent personalities like Mahatma Gandhi, Indulal Yagnik, Sardar Patel, Bollywood showman Raj Kapoor, superstar Amitabh Bachchan, Asrani, and many more also visited this place to have hot and crispy jalebis.

A man was sitting at the cash counter. I enquired him about the timings of the shop. He said – the shop opens up at 8 in the morning and runs till 7:30 in the evening. Sunday the shop is open only till 4 pm.

And what is the kilogram price of Jalebi?

640 rupees a kilo – He said.

That’s the reason I was served only one jalebi in the thali. It is costly.

I decided to revisit the shop to have hot jalebis. The shop is only half a kilometer from the Heritage House where I stayed.

After two days I re-visited the shop with one of my friends – Pankaj. We had two plates of jalebis. Each plate consists of 4 jalebis. And the price – Rs. 50 for each plate. Worth spending because jalebis are too good in taste and very crispy.

I will suggest – if you are visiting Ahmedabad and going for Heritage Walk, select the luxury package because it is with breakfast. Charges for Indians are Rs. 350 per person and for foreigners – 450 rupees per person.

Enjoy your jalebi during your visit. Thank you.
