Located next to the big mall on the old kohlapur-Bangalore highway is this very unpretentious restaurant that states it is a dining hall and resembles one. Each table has steel thalis and servers load on accompaniments. The food covers a wide range of ethnic meat and chicken offerings, the famed rassa and a good vegetarian fare too. All items we...

I took mutton fry and chicken masala. Taste was good but mutton and chicken weren't soft at all. The waiter also made huge fuss during billing and charged extra for things we didn't even take. Ambience is good but food quality has degraded since my last visit

Nice place to have genuine Kolhapuri food. Tastes great! Must try Tambda and Pandhara rasa. Mutton and chicken dishes are very nice!

We had to change our route to dine in this place and it's worth every extra minute. The Tambda-Pandhra Rassa was ultimate. We "restricted" ourselves to non-veg and it's any meat lover's delight. Apart from the waiting time, there is not too many things to complain. Service is very good! This one will be on my every trip via Kolhapur

Not that I am a person from Kolhapur to certify a place as typically Kolhapuri, but the taste to unique on @Opal, during my first dinner at Opal. We ordered the regular thali which came with 4 chappatis, 2 curries, 1 dal, salad and curd. The two curries Methi with besan and beans curry were amazing, especially Methi with besan.... More

I believe it is one of the Oldest restaurants serving the Typical Kolhapuri delicacies like Mutton Tambda (Red) & Pandhara(White) Rassa (Curry). I also think it is the only place serving pandhara (White) rassa in veg thali also. One should always eat there atleast once and order for their Sp. Mutton thali. Every visit to Kolhapur since 1997, I make... More
