View from the Mango Tree Restaurant, Hampi

Today we visited the most talked about restaurant in the whole of Hampi, which to be fair doesn’t have many restaurants. We had no idea exactly where it was but Dad knew roughly the direction, so we just wandered off trying to see if we could find it.

Walking along the riverside we noticed a couple of tourists coming from the direction we were heading so we guessed we were heading on the right path. An unsigned path appeared on the right so headed down that through an area of banana and palm trees.

Finally as we were walking along the path we noticed a sign for the Mango Tree Restaurant:

We left our shoes at the entrance and walked through to find somewhere to sit, which ended up being a mat on the ground, with a low down table to put your legs under and some angled slabs for leaning back against.

Whilst we waited for our drinks Amy noticed a Kingfisher just on the edge of the river straight in front of us:

Dad loved his drink, it was a Banana and Coconut Lassi, which is sort of like a thick yoghurty milkshake:

The food arrived and it looked really yummy. Mummy had Cheese and Tomato Paratha, I had Paneer Pakora and Daddy had Steamed Cheese and Vegetable Momos:

Amy finally found something Indian that she liked to eat, it was a Banana Paratha:
