In Gujarati, Agashiye, literally means ‘on the rooftop’ and the restaurant at the heritage hotel, House of MG provides exactly that— an expansive rooftop terrace decked out in the iconic colonial grandeur of the hotel. It provides a calm, breezy atmosphere elevated above the streets of Lal Darwaja. Here, traditional Gujarati vegetarian food is served on a kansa thali, made from an alloy known for its health benefits and the menu draws from cuisines of various regions of Gujarat.
They often bring in seasonal delicacies and every meal is planned keeping in mind the nutritional value. The experience begins in the waiting area with a refreshing sharbat and welcome starters. Once on the main terrace, the guests can choose between the regular thali priced at Rs 935 or the deluxe option at Rs 1,265 which is generously refilled. Gujarati classics such as rasawala bateka and mag ni dal are served with an assortment of miniature breads like masala paratha and bhakhri. The meal is rounded off with a warming khichdhi and kadhi.
