There is one and (the is only one i came across) Dhaba " Sher-e-Punjab" on SH-23 near Manvi on Raichur- Sindhnur stretch. Rotis were just melting in mouth and chicken punjabi was delicous. Another speciality was masala omlette.

Here are 2 of my favourites -

Delhi - Chandigarh --> Murthal Dhabas - stop at most - they are all good.

Agra - Delhi --> Surya Dhaba near palwal serves an amazing lemon chicken. A very popular option as other dhabas are vegetarian and this one serves non - veg.

Any good ones between Bangalore and Chitradurga on NH4 and the Bangalore Shimoga route (through Birur and Arsikere) ? I keep travelling on this route often and rarely find any Dhabas. The only good Hotel i know is Kamat somewhere close to Sira. There where good ones before the 4 laning of the road some 10 years back. I fail to notice them these days on NH 4.

There's a legendary one (for Manipal guys at least) on NH17.

Bitto-da-dhaba; a wonderful STRICTLY VEG. dhaba run by a cranky Kannada chap, but serves delicious food.

It is about 32kms from Manipal; just a few kms after Mulki.

It is right below a huge overhead road sign saying "Welcome to Manipal - Manipal University). That's the landmark.

Sounds amazing that dhaba owned by a Kannada chap is called Bittoo ka dhaba. Either he must have purchased it or he may be he manager.

Cheetal Khatauli Food is routine stuff, but ambiance is good and food Is hygienic.

1-2 kms After Modinagar to Meerut, Jain Shikanji has a bigger joint. His Panner pakoras are delicious.

Legend of Punjab on NH3 between Thane & Shahpur, after Kalyan Phata.

Isn't there some popular dhaba at Dharampur (Kalka-Shimla road)?

The one in Jaipur - 'Sharma Dhaba' too serves food fit for legends.

Rumour goes that Baby B's wedding to Miss World was finalized here...

On a different note, Cheetal Grand in Khatauli is more of a Mid-Way rather than a dhaba. There is a similar one by the name, 'Moolchand', few kilometres ahead of Khatauli.

I just noticed we have so many cool travelouges,its time we have a thread specifically for Dhabas/Highway stops across our country.

To get this going,i will quickly list a few popular ones in North :


Haveli,GT Road (Jalandhar) - Excellent Punjabi food.

Cheetal Grand, Delhi Mussorie Road ( Khatauli) - Serves fresh Juices,breakfast,etc * shuts quite early iirc

Dhabas @ Murthal - GT Road (Outskirts of Delhi,enroute to Chandigarh) - Must try the Parathas here

Jain Shikanji,Modinagar ( Near Meerut,enroute to Dehradun/mussoorie) - Only Serves "Masala fresh lime Soda" *Not a dhaba,just a quick 2 min stop.
Haveli is good and very popular among locals and visitors. Next time when you're in or around Jalandhar, try Lucky Dhaba right next to Haveli (if you're traveling from Delhi\Ludhiana\Phagwara, its second to Haveli). This dhaba servers excellent veg food (awesome breakfast too and the elaichi tea is REAL YUM) and has been there since donkeys years. People have forgotten this place since Haveli has opened but this place still serves lip-smacking food.

There's another place called Rangla Punjab, again next door to Haveli (just before haveli, if you're traveling from Delhi\Ludhiana\Phagwara). I've never been there but friends and family liked it. Its less of a dhaba and more like cultural museum that offers full Punjabi cuisine along with live punjabi dance. They have life size statues portraying traditional Punjabi life and its more popular among NRIs.

Punzabi (or Jalandhari )

During engineering days, every time I travel back to my hometown all KSRTC buses used to stop at Tadas @ Hotel shanthi (or some thing like that) between Hubali and Sirsi. Adjucent to this Hotel was Dhaba. I always used to go there and have dal roti and masala lassi! Till day I have never had better roti and dal than this dhaba!

There is one called Giani da dhaba at Dharampur, famous for lip smacking Tandoori chicken, Butter Chicken, lemon chicken, Kadi-chawal and some amazing paranthas.

They also have confectionery items starting from chocolates, juices & fruit beers

I'm a regular on this route and have given up on trying to find a decent food place. Kamat, in my opinion is avoidable. Only decent place is Balkar Singh Punjabi Dhaba near about Sira, but its really difficult to locate when you are doing triple digit speeds. I usually end up having lunch at Aishwarya Fort in Chitradurga town. Good fare and has both veg and non veg options.
