Shivani Restaurant

Indian in Mandu

The plain, clean, canteen-style interior of this no-nonsense diner is in welcome contrast to the hectically gaudy exterior, but it’s the good, honest and cheap food that overshadows both. The pure-veg menu is extensive and includes solid thalis plus local specialities such as Mandu malai kofta (dumplings in a mild sauce).

It does lassis too and also has open-air ‘garden’ seating across the street.
