There are places where you “eat out”.

But if you live in a desolate place like Wakad near Pune, then you “eat in”.

There are no decent eateries in Wakad where you can “eat out”. So if you are a foodie and, by some bad luck, you happen to live in Wakad, then all you can do when you feel hungry is to pick up your mobile cell phone (there are no landlines out here in Wakad) and order your food home delivery and “eat in” – yes, eat outside food in the comfort of your home.

Here are a few places in and around Wakad from where I order my food “home delivery”.

This is just a “laundry list” of 10 eateries with contact details.

1. ADITYA  (Veg and Non Veg Meals) – 02065101088

2. INDIAN IN A BOX (Snacks and Light Meals – Veg and Non Veg) – 02022931800

3. MOTHER’S KITCHEN (Veg and Non Veg Meals) – 02032609482

4. HYDERABAD HOUSE (Biryani and Kabab) – 02032344966

5. VINISAIL (Wraps and Meal Combos) – 02060508885

6. SAUNDARYA GARDEN (Veg and Non Veg Meals) – 02032001007

7. THE SHANGHAI COURT (Chinese) – 0203254493

8. MAST KALANDAR (Veg Meals and Snacks) – 02060126044

9. KINGS PARADISE (Veg and Non Veg Meals) – 02060507080

10. FAASO’S (Wraps) – 02022934341 (Closed Down Temporarily)

And of course, there are the ubiquitous DOMINO’S (02022932786) SMOKING JOE’S (02022934000) MCDONALD’S (02066000666) and SUBWAY (02022932011).

And there are eateries like NAAZ (07875448695) EDDY’S KITCHEN (02065292757) GHAR KA KHANA and Rustic Taste Earthy Style (8796901018) which I have not tried yet.

As I said, the above is just a “laundry list” with contact details.

Of course, I have ordered from most of these places and I may have reviewed a few of these takeaway restaurants too.

I look forward to your comments and views on what you think of the food from these eateries.

Also, do tell us if you know of any good eating places in Wakad Pune, where you can “eat out” or from where you can order home delivery to “eat in”.

Soon I'll tell you some value for money places to “eat out” in Wakad (in case I find some and in case you discover some good place do tell us).

Till then, order your food home and “eat in”.

Have you been to Copa Cabana in Wakad? I think it has fantastic food, great open air ambience, plenty of parking. Give it a try.

@ Shankar - I have been to all of them and of the above my favourite is Mezza9 - but all these are expensive dining restaurants.
Please tell us if there is a decent Udipi Affordable Restaurant like Vaishali, Shivsagar etc in Wakad where one can have a nice Idli, Dosa, Uttapam or Pav Bhaji with family?
