Nirula's Family Style Restaurant Panipat Reviews
India's Answer to McDonald's Oct 09, 2009
Nirula is India's equivalent to McDonalds, and just like any comparison to things in India to things in the USA there are many differences.
First thing you'll notice at any nirula's family style restuarant is the goofy uniforms that the people are wearing, they remind me of an indian version of super mario, and yes if they eat a mushroom they do get really big!
The decor is actually very nice, and kind of reminds me of an old school starbucks with lots of paintings of happy looking Indians. They also have TV's all over the walls displaying indian music video's, and after the death of the great wacko jacko video's of him to (almost makes you cry right?).
The food at Nirula's is not bad, not great either. They have Indian food (tasty) and american style food. There pizza's are sometimes decent, but the go to food is "the big boy", equiped with an all lamb patty, tomatoes, onions, all on a bun served with wafers or fries. Get the fries... Also it won't make you into a "big boy" because it is reasonably sized unlike the food at most american resturants.
However the reason I visit Nirulas is to shoot some time, and get some serious people watching in. This is one place where you will see groups of women in public, along with lots of families, groups of soldiers, businessmen, and a full array of interesting indian people.
For most tourists a visit to Nirulas would be to get some food that won't damage your stomach, but yea like the rest of india there can be some crazy smells inside!
