Good overall experience… Gujrati Thali (with some Rajasthani touch except sweetness)!
This Ahmedabad visit, I tried exploring local food especially Thalis… landed at “Ame Gujrati” at about 8:30 PM. The place was nearly empty at the time we entered but while we were finishing, the occupancy was nearly 100%.
Open courtyard with glass walled Gazebos (air conditioned) towards periphery. Very low levels of illumination and wooden furniture. Each Gazebo had about 4 tables with seating capacity of 4 to 6. Live folk music and puppet show (that evening). Overall it was decent ambiance.
Three types of Thalis with increasing number of preparations as well as cost… Vyapari, Seth and Nagar Seth.
Dispenser on the table for chutney and pickles etc.
Heavy weight brass utensils.
Service started with welcome drink… sweet jaljira
Then moved to starters… stuffed mirch bhajiya and khichla papad (read appeared)
Salad… Chopped as chunks and not slices. Absolutely fresh and juicy (especially carrots).
Then main Thali… dhokla, cutlet, Kadhi, Batata rassa, chana, panir burji, bhindi masala, bhakhri, rotla, thepla, shrikhand and gulab jamun and bundi.
Khichdi (with ghee on top) and plain rice.
Gulabjamun and bundi were showstoppers.
Being habitual of having spicy (hot) food; I found everything though tasty but bit sweeter (except dhokla and papad) but I savored it. No regrets!
Food quality: 4
Service: 4 (with smile and request to eat/try more)
Value for money: 4
Going by own conveyance is better during late night return (for Auto we needed to walk about 1.5 km towards main road)
