Built on a unique concept of the gift economy, this restaurant is a MUST VISIT if you are in Ahmedabad. Largely run by volunteers, you would see all normal people like you and me who are behind the kitchen, waiting at the tables. What I loved was the un-trained warmth with which they greet you and talk to you. The... More

I visited just to get an experience. Very limited menu. But what needs to be appreciated is the way youngsters are volunteering and what ever you eat put of menu. In last you get a bill which just states what and how much you had. We are soo use to to see vat and other taxes, hence this is kind... More

Seva Cafe is one of a kind experience, for you to be fully immersed in the dining experience. it works on volunteers and is a good chance to get to meet other people. It's not the ideal sit down restaurant where you just spend time on your own so be prepared for that.

I had heard about Seva cafe from my friends in Bangalore. So I thought of visiting the same. It is a concept cafe where you pay whatever you wish to pay out of your heart. I guess everyone who works there is a volunteer though I am not very sure about the same. They serve everything with love. The day... More

This unique restaurant is based on Gandhijee's principles. The restaurant is run by volunteers. The staff including chef are all volunteers. When the bill comes you will be surprised to see that it is zero. You can pay what you wish. The ambience is nice and there are books all over the place. Sipping tea while reading a book in... More

This is an unique restaurant where the staff is completely made up of volunteers. This combined with the pay as you like concept makes every meal do equally good to your mind and heart as with your stomach. There is no fixed menu (As I understood) and as the menu varies from day to day so would the taste. The... More

The concept is excellent and worth encouraging, and I am all for it, which is why I made the effort to go here even though it is difficult to find. However, the menu on offer was disappointing. I had no desire to have bean soup and corn rice with some pasta dish, all cooked by Gujju volunteers. I was hoping... More
