Sri Tulasi Garden – The Best Traditional Restaurant near Hampi

Sri Tulasi Garden – The Best Traditional Restaurant near Hampi

Virupapur Gaddi is across the Tungabhadra River where most of the travelers stay during the Hampi visit. We were in need of cash and someone suggested there is an ATM at Hampi but it was not working. Where is the next ATM?

Anegundi – we were told. And if that is also not working then we have to drive a few more km to reach Gangavathi.

How far is Anegundi?

6 – 7 km from Virupapur Gaddi.

We started our TVS Scooty and reached within minutes. After the ATM as it was afternoon hours, we decided to have lunch. A few meters further and a left turn and on the right side opposite Nanjanagudu Sri Ragavendra Swamy Mutt we saw Tulasi Garden/Tulasi Hotel.

Only a few seats left. We grab our seats. Within minutes a plantain leaf commonly known as a banana leaf was placed on top of our table and water to wash it and later food was served by two ladies.

The best thing about this restaurant is – It serves traditional food. As per personal five years of travel, I have seen that wherever traditional food is served, people prefer to have it. If I am visiting a state, I wish to have traditional state food. A tough wish but is fulfilled a few times.

The food was coming straight from the kitchen. It was hot and very tasty. As the restaurant was very busy, I was unable to know the names of the food served, but yes, I thoroughly enjoyed the food.

Cost – Rs. 80/- unlimited.

Another best thing about the restaurant – it is open from 6:30 morning hours till 10 in the night. Great for travelers.
