There's simply no denying the popularity Rajdhani's thali continues to enjoy, although recently, it seems to have lost its edge just that little bit. Very average DBRS (Dal, Bhaat, Rotli, Shaak) with greasy vegetables did not make my day the last time I ate there, but the sweet Gujarati Kadhi remains a commendable. Nonetheless, 72 rotating menus, spanning hundreds of delicacies from Gujarat and Rajasthan, presented on shiny thalis continue to bring loyal crowds pouring. Four vegetables, three sweets, three dals, two farsaans, phulka, rice, kadhi, khichdi or pulao, achaar, papad, chutney and the occasional seasonal surprise, along with Saada Chhaas... all this is for just Rs.325 during lunch and Rs.350 during dinner on weekdays. On weekends, both meals add-on special sweets and at Rs.350 it's quite a steal for healthy, wholesome, authentic Gujju food.

Rajdhani Thali is food for the soul. This restaurant is one of the best places to have food and also enjoy it. There are no menus or lists; one certainly wouldn’t want one after having a bite of the delicacies they provide. The thali has got everything that you would ask for in a perfect meal. They actually go one step further by providing extensive variety of food preparations that are bound to mesmerize you. The thali contains dals, vegetables, curries and pickles that taste different from the regular food we have. Every bite is like a new discovery and the effect is refreshing.
There is something positive about the food that suggests that it is made with utmost love and care. The service and serving is generous, vigilant and caring. Never will you have a roti that is not fluffy not will you have a curry that is not hot. The unlimited food will satisfy your stomach as well as your mind. The sweets and desserts provide the finishing touch which sums up a pleasing meal. It is an experience you would like to have more often or frequently.

Food is great. No doubts about that but when the service is so pathetic it is all in vain. Last week we visited Nirmal Lifestyle outlet and ruined our day. The AC doesn't work, they take in more people than they can serve and then the service goes for tos

Khandani Rajdhani Thali celebrated their Rajwar festival last month all over the country, which featured a special menu and unlimited sweet selections, and I was lucky enough to have tried that out. We were received with a traditional teeka being put on your foreheads and with a wide grin on everyones faces, like we had come over to someones place for Diwali. It felt nice.
But I must warn you. To take this thali down is not an option for the faint hearted. In the middle of all these things being served to you, from Daal Baati Choorma to Gatte ki Sabzi to Biscuit Paranthas to Malpuas with Rabri, and the bordering-on-annoying hospitality that insists on multiple servings, you must have some real will power. So I decided to work around my Thali strategically. I did not take second servings, and I took every bowl out of my plate once it was over. And my task was finally accomplished.
But then the sweets arrived, and I may be in love with an inanimate object, the Malpua with Rabdi, and maybe cheating on the gorgeously crunchy Jalebis by the side, while having a long distance affair with the Chikoo Halwa.
With hallucinations of my bed and wanting to get to it as soon as possible, I struggled to get up and leave but how could I, without their outstanding Paan Shots! Loved my experience and would definitely come back for more. With a larger appetite for sure!
