Pune’s Top Restaurants

20 Best Restaurants in Pune are given below:

Stanza Living’s cafe menu > Any other cafe menu in Pune. We said it! If you check out our PGs in Pune, you’ll agree too.

Vaishali, FC Road

Vaishali is Pune’s best restaurant for all South Indian foodies and vegetarians. There’s often a line in front of the place, especially during peak hours. But all of that is worth it when you finally get a table and dive into their fluffy, warm idlis that’ll take you from Maharashtra to Tamil Nadu in a second.

Nisarg, Erandwane

If you’re looking for Pune’s top restaurants serving seafood, Nisarg is the place to be. Satisfy your cravings with some yummy Malvani, Goan, and Mangalorean food, accompanied by Sol Kadhi, a coconut-infused drink. Even the decor of this place will make you feel like you’re on a beach. All the seafood lovers, they “sea” you.

Yana Sizzlers and Wok, MG Road

If we’re talking about the good restaurants Pune has, we cannot miss out on Yana. Even after expanding to three outlets, it’s still difficult to find a table here on weekends without waiting. That doesn’t stop Punekars from coming here because their American and barbeque dishes are to die for. Sizzling hot sizzlers, here we come.

Bubsterrs, Kalyani Nagar

Bubsterr’s is the best place to eat in Pune if you’re craving some fried, greasy food. Be it their monster-sliced pizzas, burgers, hot dogs and the most famous Bacon Fiesta. And a nice glass of Oreo milkshake to gulp it all down. Also, their colourful decor and leather seating is American-style retro diner, done right.

Savya Rasa, Koregaon Park

Although a new name, Savya Rasa has quickly become one of Pune’s top restaurants. Their menu is so diverse, even though their niche is South Indian food. Here, you can tingle your taste buds with dishes like Gongura Mamasam (mutton and sorrel leaf curry with Guntur chillies), Bendakkai Goju (South Indian style okra) and Meen Manga Curry (seer fish with raw mango in a coconut gravy). If you came here expecting your regular Idli and Dosa, we’re sorry.

Shizusan, Viman Nagar

Shizusan in Phoenix Market City Mall is another unique place for dinner in Pune. It is an Asian bistro, but it’s much more than your noodles and fried rice here. Their Lamb and Leek Dim Sum, 12-hour Braised Pork Belly and the classic Pad Thai will become your favourites. If you still have some space left, do try their unusual desserts too. Seriously, Green-Tea Infused Tiramisu?

Mahlzeit, Koregaon Park

This is one of the very few good restaurants in Pune serving German food. The portion sizes are enough to fill you up till the next day. Don’t miss out on the Bratwurst, Currywurst, Bratkartoffel Döner Kebab and Bratkartoffeln. The names are super hard to pronounce, but the food is that easy and comforting to eat.

Baan Tao, Kalyani Nagar

If you’re in Kalyani Nagar and google “best restaurants in Pune near me”, Baan Tao will definitely feature in that list. This place is known for its Chinese and Thai food, especially the Asian street food festival they host every Thursday. The restaurant is styled like a tea lounge, but offers much more than just tea.

Malaka Spice, Baner

This place has two sections on the menu – street food and Asian fusion, neither of which you will regret ordering. The best part about Malaka Spice is that their chef keeps changing the menu every season, so it’s great for experimenting. Although if you hate change (like Sheldon Cooper), you should probably go somewhere else.

Sufis, Wanowrie

Sufis is open 24*7 and it’s one of the most famous restaurants in Pune among night owls. They serve simple Parsi food, like Jujeh and Chelo kebabs, Chicken Angara, Chicken Tawa Pulav, and Kolhapuri Chicken. This place will make you realise that Sufi culture is much more than Khwaja mere Khwaja.

CopaCabana, Vishal Nagar

Copacabana is where all good things come together under the same roof. They serve all cuisines from Mexican to Chinese, Burmese to Japanese, and Continental to North Indian. And, they’re pet-friendly, so you can share a plate of chicken with your doggo too.

Sabores Bistro & Bar, Shivajinagar

With fairy lights, breezy decor and live music, Sabores is calling you in for a romantic date night. The menu here, just like the ambience, is quite European and offers some interesting dishes like croissant sandwiches, pasta, split pizzas and falafel. Your very own European night, right here in Pune.

Botequim Cervejaria, Koregaon Park

We know you’ve cheered for Brazil at least once in the FIFA World Cup. So why not fall in love with its amazing cuisine too? This authentic Brazilian restaurant offers the best from the football hub – the Classic Pao De Queijo, Garlic Shrimp Linguine, Ex-Turbo Burger and lots more. The food is yum, but why is their name so difficult to pronounce?

Rangla Punjab, Pashan

You really thought our list of the best places to eat in Pune wouldn’t have a Dhaba in it? Well, you were wrong. This rooftop Dhaba serves amazing Punjabi and North Indian dishes that’ll make you lick your fingers long after the server has taken your plates away.

Addah Koregaon, Park

A view of the beautiful Pune skyline and live charcoal grill makes Addah one of the best places for dinner in Pune. Added bonus, they also have a swimming pool where you can sit with your feet in the water while enjoying your dinner.

Tarsh Gastronomia, Hinjewadi Road

If you’re confused about where to go for date night, we recommend Tarsh Gastronomia. It is a rooftop restaurant with an alfresco ambience and serves some delicious food. Share a plate of Pan-Asian dumplings with your date. Or if you’ve reached that comfort level with each other, go all out and hog on some mouthwatering Nalli Nihari with your hands.

Chingari, Bund Garden Road

If you are a fan of North Indian and Mughlai food, definitely try this place. Their Dal Chingari and varieties of kebabs will turn you into a regular. And whenever anyone says Kebabs, the first name that’ll pop into your mind will be Chingari.

The Ruby Hilltop Lounge, Sus Gaon

This famous restaurant in Pune is really quiet and their North Indian dishes are a must-try. You and your friends can play some pool, chess, carrom or air hockey as you wait for your food. If you want a more romantic setting, just picture a candlelight dinner on top of a hill. 

Cafe Du Mich, Mundhwa

Cafe Du Mich is a treat for vegetarians. This place makes the best Jalapeno Poppers in the whole city and is also known for their experimental dishes. Speaking of which, do try their Caramelised Vermicelli Shrikhand and Gulab Jamun Cheesecake.

Dario’s, Koregaon Park

No one does comfort food better than the Italians. The proof is in this cosy place that serves the most amazing Tortellini with Spinach and Ricotta, Gnocchi with Sage Butter, Penne Aglio Burro Formaggio and Etnea Pizza. Both the ambience and the service here scream comfort, just like their food.

Boteco, Koregaon Park

Boteco is one of the most romantic places for dinner in Pune. Options for vegetarians are quite limited here, but if you love meat, you can go crazy. They are very famous for their “make-your-own-steak” concept, so if it doesn’t taste good, you know it’s not them who messed it up lol.
