Kinara Dhaba Village

North Indian in Lonavla

A bit of a dhaba Disneyland, but therein lies the fun. About 5km east of Lonavla, near Karla and Bhaja caves, is this fun-for-all restaurant/entertainment venue. Dine under traditional shamiana huts amid festival lighting, camel and donkey rides, jalebi (deep-fried batter dunked in sugar syrup) carts, fish pedicure pools andRajasthani astrologers. Live ghazal (Urdu love songs) music nightly (7pm).

The electric atmosphere is made more so by local holiday merrymakers. A return rickshaw including wait time from the centre of town should cost around ₹300 to ₹500.
