Raj Cottage, a Popular Breakfast Haunt in Karjat

On a beautiful rainy day if you are looking for a place to have a nice, steaming breakfast, then Raj Cottage would be a good choice. Located on the Chowk-Karjat Road, the restaurant churns out local delicacies like Vada pav, misal pav, tasty South Indian cuisine and Indian fare as well.

From Idli sambar to different kinds of dosas, uttapams, etc., Raj Cottage is priced reasonably. We've been there a couple of times, and have noticed that the quality of food has improved as compared to a year back, when the place didn't even have a clean menu card.

Raj Cottage serves lunch and dinner as well - Indian food with rotis, kulchas which is decent but not as delicious as the breakfast. The cost of a normal Indian dish like Veg Makhanwala or Paneer Mutter range from Rs 90 onwards, they also have some interesting dishes like Cheese Angoori or Paneer Pasanda.

The restaurant is crowded on weekends and lot of locals visit during the week. The payment service could be lousy at times, especially at the cash counter, who will take their own time to prepare the bill.

A must try would be Shri icecream, a Gujarat-based company, which has an outlet right outside the restaurant. All the flavours cost Rs 30, and is a good desert to have after a heavy meal - we prefer butterscotch and black currant. Although we mostly visit Raj Cottage for breakfast, overall its among the few choices of decent restaurants present in Karjat.
