Pol Kholi is a small café in Mangaldas Ni Haveli II, in the heart of the World Heritage City, serving beverages and snacks.
‘Agashiye’ in Gujarati means ‘on the terrace’. Recognized for serving the best Gujarati thali in India, this restaurant is spread over the entire terrace of the huge mansion and has both outdoor and indoor seating. Here you can enjoy a sit-down dinner, exactly how a Gujarati family eats at home. The food is prepared from seasonal ingredients and served unlimited in a ‘Kansa thali’, a plate made from alloy with medicinal properties. Much like the city and its people, Agashiye celebrates traditional Gujarati food made fresh. A Jain menu is available on request.
The Green House is a relaxing café set amidst greenery. Located under a covered pavilion on the ground floor courtyard of the building and overlooking the famous Sidi Saiyed Mosque across the road. The food here is cooked in front of you in an open kitchen. It is a perfect breakfast and supper place for freshly cooked traditional Indian and International comfort food, snacks, cold-pressed fresh juices, and homemade ice-creams. The café extends into an air-conditioned section that was once the buggy room of the mansion.

Located in Mangaldas Ni Haveli 2, it is a perfect osis for a break after a visit to the interior of the World Heritage City. Enjoy a quick snack and beverage before setting off again
