    3. Asha dining hall on Apte Road for best Maharashtrian vegetarian thali
    4. Masala pav, tava pulav and cold coffee on the stalls in lane besides Eden Court (Model Colony)
    5. Krishna dining hall on Law College Road, I personally prefer it over Sukanta.
    6. Yana on FC road for sizzlers
    7. Sitaphal Rabdi at Mathura on JM Road (if they still serve it)
    8. Indianised pasta at Shivsagar on JM Road

    I still remember the days from 8-9 years ago when we friends used to have stuffed paratha or 2 simple paratha + curry at Chaitanya for not more than 30 Rs. But it soon became an overpriced joint. I haven’t eaten Chaitanya in last 5-6 years.
