A nice place. Good food and ambience. Recommend to go early on weekends. Have been here number of times. Food is always good no complaints. Will find people Waiting for table. Even then it's well managed and food quality is not compromised. Service is efficient

Good location. Has a very big dining hall. Almost full even at around 1430 when we visited for lunch. Many mutton preparations in Malvan style. Very tasty with good service. Vegetarian food is also very good.Sweet dishes are not good. A must visit for good Malvani food.

I visited this place after my afternoon lunch at shetkari hotel. I had very high expectations but was literally let down. My Mom ordered mutton masala and pandhra rassa. It was just spicy, but not tasty. On the other hand, i ordered Jhunka, which was good. Overall experience here was average. It is not upto the hype created by localites... More

Opal is synonymous with excellent Kolhapuri cuisine. In spite of naysayers who swear that there are better places serving authentic Kolhapuri food , Opal continues to be a favourite with travelers. Mutton fry and mutton masala are well cooked and meat is rightly tender. Chicken dishes are also fine. I particularly relish their chapatis and onion-curd raita served with the... More

This place is very good for authentic Kolhapuri food, whether it is veg or non-veg. Their non-veg, especially mutton dishes, were excellent and mouth watering. One feels like repeating the dishes even if you are full. Service was a bit slow.

We were a group of 15 members and had our lunch here. The food served was steaming and fresh. Mutton dishes were so tasty that we repeated our order. Quite reasonably priced too. Will surely visit on our next visit.

We were there @ about lunch time on our way from pune. Opal is a small detour (10 minutes) from Highway if you are not specifically visiting Kolhapur. Trust me it is worth it. The food is simply great. We ordered mutton dishes with their signature Pandhra Rassa and Tambda Rassa. Initially we were very skeptical of the spiciness of... More

Whenever I’ve been to Kolhapur, I make it a point to visit Opal. The Mutton (sukka,Fry,Masala), Pandhra rassa(White Rassa) , Tambada rassa(Red Rassa) are really awesome. This time I had Mutton Masala (Bowl) and Chapattis. Taste is authentic and consistent over the years. The staff is very good and service is really quick.
