Here are the review of Hotel I stayed at in Khajuraho and also review of the restaurants I had food at during my recent trip to Khajuraho.
While I was thoroughly satisfied with my hotel stay, food wise I was disappointed with almost all the places I had eaten at in Khajuraho, here are the reviews:
Hotel Siddharthaâ€™s roof top and ground floor restaurant: Hotel Siddharthaâ€™s roof top restaurant offers fantastic views of the Western Group of Temples and is a perfect for photography. Food wise it wasnâ€™t all that bad, but not as good as I would have wanted it to be. Click here to read moreâ€¦
Raja CafÃ©: located right next to Hotel Siddharth, Rajaj CafÃ© advertises itself as the place recommended by all the guide books. However it failed to impress me during both of my breakfast breaks. Click here to read moreâ€¦
Madras CafÃ©: Once again, right opposite Western Group of Temples but a smaller joint than the rest. Really thought I would get cheap and decent food there. But Rs. 100 for a veg thali, of which I could only eat one subzi, isnâ€™t all that VFM. Though I didnâ€™t try their Dosa, it is somewhat economically priced at Rs. 40.

Balla Italia: Easily the worst food joint at Khajuraho and one of the worst if not worst food I have ever eaten on a trip, if their chef is really from Italy, then he needs to be deported ASAP! Click here to read moreâ€¦
Thankfully I got better food while going to and coming back from Khajuraho and to top it all, it was way cheaper than what I paid in Khajuraho! Heck, even a small dhaba in the middle of nowhere, around 30km before Khajuraho, served better food!
It might have been that I went to all the wrong places (never going to trust Lonely Planetâ€™s restaurant recommendation again) or that they are way too geared for the foreign tourists and locals that for a North India like me, it wasnâ€™t all the great. But whatever it was, food was the only sore point (apart from the puncture my bike suffered) in an otherwise perfect and wonderful trip.
