Parkview Restaurant Udaipur, Opp Town Hall, Bapu Bazar, City Centre, Udaipur Review
Parkview Restaurant Udaipur was our lunch venue during my last trip to Udaipur. So out of my two visits to Udaipur, I have eaten at Parkview restaurant both times. This time my hosts told me that the restaurant was one of the oldest. So it was, It as been catering to it’s patrons since 1968. I could also estimate the same given the old time, minimal decor and grey haired stewards who in my opinion have aged with the restaurant. It surely seemed popular with the locals since it had a lots of families merrily munching on their food.
Parkview Restaurant Udaipur has a rich legacy and with the interiors notwithstanding seems to be a popular place to be. Parkview is popular because of its central location. Also another reason has to be its menu. All things considered, these guys really spoil people for choice here. In fact, the menu is a riot and encompasses North Indian, South Indian, Chinese, Tandoori, Shahi Mughlai cuisines. They also have pizzas, burger, pastas and shakes that are really popular with children. Apart from all this there is also a separate section on Continental dishes. With something for the whole family available under a single roof, such restaurants usually become a hot destination for families.
A steward greeted us and showed us to our table and served water in time. Service was looking good already.
Having said that, this is what we went with at Parkview Restaurant Udaipur.
Chicken Handi – The thick masala gravy was nice but the chicken was overcooked so we had to go fishing for the quite disintegrated morsels of meat. It had a good taste but a failed fowl.
We were so intrigued and salivating by finding, Magaz, Gurde Kapure on the menu. Our excitement was shot down without remorse with a big – Not Available. Eventually, we ordered Keema Kaleji Masala which turned out to be great, with just the right amount of spices paired with finely cooked meat, it offered the perfect bite.
Mixed Vegetables – The solo vegetarian eating mixed vegetables commented that it was very nice.. Since, we the meatatarians did not even look at the vegetables, let alone taste them.
The house chutney made with dhaniya, pudina, hari mirch and some sugar was an instant hit. In my opinion, they adapted a bit of Gujarati touch too, given the amount of tourists from Gujarat making their way to Udaipur.
To Sum-It-Up: Go for it if you are in Udaipur and have a lack of choice. The food is nice and service is decent. The decor is run down and dated but that should not impact your tastebuds much. Do remember that you maybe turned down for a few dishes may not be available. Don’t lose your heart over it.
