the lunch was good. but when I ordered Bornvita to drink it was very watery and there was no milk at all. it was just Bornvita and water. Things like this show that they don't care.

Respected Guest, We are thankful to you for your 3 STAR rating for our hotel's food ! We are also pleased that you liked our food preparations. We humbly acknowledge your appreciation for that. We have noted your review. It seems that you were slightly disappointed with the Bournvita being served to you. We humbly regret & apologize for any inconvenience caused to you & for not meeting your expectation in this regards. We use toned milk for making hot beverages like tea, coffee & bournvita & do not use whole milk. Toned milk is usually low in fat content & is also thinner than the whole milk. Hence you might have mistaken it, when it did not meet your expectation of whole milk in Bournvita. We assure you that we value our esteemed guests very much. As such you may share your feedback & valuable suggestions on 'admin@hotelopal.co.in', wherein we will be able to understand what exactly happened. We will definitely address & resolve this concern. Since our beginning in 1968, we always strive to serve the best of our food for the past 50 years. We have many patrons who visit us regularly to savour our food & enjoy our homely service, which is quite evident from the good reviews we have received over a period of time. Assuring our best at all times, we remain at your service to welcome you again ! With Best regards, The Manager

This is the first restaurant in which all of us could enjoy our food - both veg and non-veg. Generally restaurants specialising in non-veg food donot serve quality veg food. But Opal is an exception. Staff is courteous too.

It’s one of the oldest hotels in Kolhapur that I know of. The rooms are decent and clean.

The restaurant is full during lunch hours. They offer regular thali and special thali. Food is spicy yet tasty.

For those who don’t know where Opal is, it shares the same wall as Sayaji.
