5 Restaurants in Pune to hit up for the love of mangoes before the mango season ends.

When life gives you lemons, throw it back and say, “I said i wanted a Mango!

I have been doing that for a while now and trust me I am loving it. So for the love of mangoes here’s a list for you my lovelies, a list of the 5 mango festivals that are not to be missed at any cost.

1) The Royal Alphonso Festival at Link, Sheraton Grand, Pune.


Right from the mango delight pastry to a mango milkshake and from fresh mango with cream to a Mango brûlée, you’ll get everything Mango, actually everything Alphonso at Link, Sheraton Grand. The other Royal Alphonso specials include:

Mango Cheese Cake (Rs 450/-)

Mango milkshake (Rs 300/-)

Fresh Mango Crumble with Cinnamon Custard Sauce (Rs 375/-)

Also, a Mango Tiramisu with Margarita Salsa (Rs 475/-)

The festival is about to end, but hey, we still have a few days left, so book an uber (Because it’s cloudy) and make sure to bid adieu to the king of fruits in style, where else but at Link, Sheraton Grand.

2) The Aamlicious Festival at Rajdhani Thaali


15 bowls of aamras is enough to bring any mortal down on their knees. But for bhukkads like us, that is called “just wetting our beaks”.

This April, Khandani Rajdhani celebrates a 2-month long Aamlicious Festival that celebrates the king of fruits in its most delicious forms.

Date: Till 31st May

Cost: INR 399++

4) The Orchid Mango Trail at Boulevard, The Orchid Hotel, Balweadi


One of the few things that make our lives endurable during the scorching summer is our love for Mangoes.

The Orchid Mango Trail, Pune’s first Mango Gourmet Festival, boasts 25 different varieties of mangoes, over a span of ten days.
