One of The Best Restaurants and Canteen in Mount Abu

Afternoon time I along with my mother passed by Ambedkar Circle, Mount Abu, and a look at the restaurant – Arbuda where there were no seats empty, and many waiting outside for their turn to have lunch. We too were hungry. The curiosity to visit as per the rush. We too stand in the queue. As we were two only we were invited to have a seat much earlier. Rajma, Bundi Raita, and Butter Roti – requested from the Menu. Quick service and the food tasty. I remember the owner of the restaurant visited and had talks with my mother about the quality of the food and service. Good – she said.

Arbuda restaurant is as equal as any big town/city restaurant serving Rajasthani/Gujarati/Punjabi/South Indian/Chinese/Continental and many more dishes. Even for breakfast, it is one of the best restaurants. Once we had Banana Honey Porridge and another morning we had Cheese Garlic Toast.

Night hours and the rush as it is at Arbuda. Any other restaurant? – A thought.

Let us try Gujarati khana (food). Hotel Gujarat is opposite Girl’s School and has a restaurant below. Again queue. Few minutes of wait and availability of seats. We order Kadhi Khichidi. Service quick. Food was tasty.

Morning hours and a visit to Shree Swaminarayan mandir. After prayers, while walking downstairs we saw a canteen run by a family. A visit and request for Aalu Paratha and Dahi (curd). Homemade food almost. The best food I had at Mount Abu – in short. The best may be because I love homemade food and economical as well. But the only problem canteen is a little far from Nakki Lake or Bus Depot. I wish I was staying at Shree Swaminarayan temple. They have an accommodation facility. Next time maybe.


This time during the visit to Mount Abu I most of the time preferred the canteen food at Shree Swaminarayan temple. Aalu Paratha, Chas for breakfast, Unlimited Thali for Lunch or Dinner what to say fantastic. Even for the train journey, I requested the canteen owner to pack dinner.

Cost of Aaloo Paratha – Rs. 30, Chas – Rs. 15, Tea – Rs. 15, Thali – Rs. 80. Economical for sure.

Timings: 7:00 am – 10:00 pm

Not to forget another great restaurant situated at Seth Shri Raghunath Das Parihar Inn. During our stay, we had Palak Paneer and Aaloo Chola with Butter Tandori Roti for lunch, Cheese and Vegetable Cutlets as evening snacks.
