Food for the Mood at The Celebration Mall

A healthy food, for a zesty mood!

There is always a reason to go out and eat! I love food and if granted a reason would definitely grab the opportunity to eat out at any food outlet. Udaipur has some of the most YUMMM food courts, one of the best being the “Food Court” at the Celebration Mall.

Food capital celebration mall

Being a mammoth foodie, I love to try out food and savor those smells, which I personally call the “Food-Aroma”. This food court has all those aromas to stir up your taste buds. Done watching a movie at the PVR or If you are tired of shopping at the mall, which by the way none of the ladies will agree to, you can go to the food court and relish some of the most appealing dishes and mouth-watering desserts.

I love taking pictures of food and upload them on various social sites; there at the food court one added advantage to people like us is the free Wi-Fi. Also I could charge my mobile as they had on table charging points.

Whether your friends want a treat or you just want to eat out; listed below are all the food outlets of the Food Court at the Celebration Mall (3rd Floor) that can suffice your hunger at any occasion:


Subway - food court celebration mall

We all so aware of Subway, for all the health conscious one’s Subway serves 97% fat-free subs and salads. They give you a choice that you can actually customize your subs or salads.  Everything is freshly baked and yes! Now talking about the taste, Aloo Patty and Roasted Chicken were quite fancy and I loved them; a must try indeed!

Soo Foody

Vinods cafe celebration mall

I met the man himself, Mr. Vinod, who owns and runs this chain of these outlets and is an excellent cook! The things you must try at the Soo Foody outlet of Celebration Mall are the very famous Cold and Hot Coffee, pizzas and garlic bread. I also loved the Club Sandwich they offered me.

The prices are moderate and the food is yumm! What more could I have asked for!

Bamboo Grilles

Bamboo Grilles - Celebration Mall

Bamboo Grilles is one outlet that is totally dedicated to Chinese Food. The veg-momos start from a very nominal price of 50 Rupees. What I personally loved was their veg-sizzler and chicken lollipop with a coke! The prices are relatively good but affordable.

Tikka Express

Tikka Express celebration mall

From Indian tandoor to Chinese tandoor they serve all. It is a franchise chain of restaurants from Chandigarh and has around 7-8 outlets across India. They serve both vegetarian and non-vegetarian cuisines and their veg paneer tikka and non-veg chicken tikka was to die for!!!


Keventers celebration mall

Some of us must be quite familiar with their shakes. Keventers is an iconic brand when it comes to milkshakes. It is a well-known franchise and has its roots down till 1925 when it first started in Delhi. Out of the 22 shakes they offer, I had some and found hazelnut and chocolate Oreo shake the best!!!

They serve in beautiful glass bottles, AND YES! You guessed right, you can take your bottle home! Voila!

Frozen Factory

Frozen Factory Celebration Mall

It is a Thailand-based Concept and has two more branches at Bengaluru and Lucknow. The fun part is that they make “live Ice-cream” yes, they made it in front of my eyes. I totally loved the taste and got quite carried away by the performance too! Haha!

Dosa Plaza

dosa plaza celebration mall

It is a Mumbai-based food outlet and has around 68 other outlets across India and 4 outlets outside the country as well. They have 104 varieties of ‘Dosa’; varying from Mexican to Chinese and yes India too.  A must try at the Dosa Plaza at the Celebration Mall Food Court is the ‘Maharaja Masala Dosa.


Dominos Food COurt celebration mall

Domino’s is a world famous brand and the cheese burst pizza is my personal favorite. Here in Food court, I tried margarita, country special, and Barbeque chicken pizzas too.

The Chocolate Room

the chocolate room celebration mall

It is an Australian based franchise and serves all chocolate stuff. Chocolate sizzler and Chocolate Avalanche are their signature chocolates and were too yummy as well.

These are the major 9 outlets at the Food Court, apart from these; there are some more outlets in the Celebration Mall that can quench your thirst for food good.

These are Barbeque Nation, Apple Delight, Café Hideout, Waffles and Shakes, Brewz Rock Café. Other than the above mentioned, The Celebration mall also has Mc Donald’s, Baskin and Robbins, Café Coffee Day etc.

Food Brands in celebration mall

Celebration mall in Udaipur has become a one stop shop-n-eat arena, the Food Court itself has a seating area of 250 plus people at a time so grab your stuff and just enjoy your treat.

birthday party zone celebration mall

In addition to this, they have a “Party Square” as well at the Food Court and have a ‘Hungama Game planet’ next to it. The capacity of the Party Square is around 50 to 55 people. It is a nice decent place to have a small get-together or a birthday with food served straight from the Food Court.

I loved it totally and ate my belly-full! Give it a try and check it out yourself, I am sure you won’t be disappointed!

Bon appétit!!!

5 things I hate about The Celebration Mall, Udaipur

The Celebration Mall Logo
This Logo is a Property of The Celebration Mall and is taken from their website


The Celebration Mall, Bhuwana : A joint development of CapitaMalls Asia & AIPL (Advance India Project Limited) is the first and only Heritage Mall of Udaipur offering wide ranging services of a Mall. But there are certain things we hate about it and it will be really appreciable if they can work on this.. !! And make this Mall – A happening place to Be 🙂

Proper Drinking Facility:

While checking out the complaint/suggestion book of the celebration mall I found that the most hated problem is of “Drinking Water Facility”. This problem is prolonging and no one is taking care of it. Can’t the mall Authorities add Proper Drinking facilities in the Mall to facilitate people???

No Personal Celebration in Celebration Mall:

For this point I would refer to one of the incidents me and my friends faced.. ! It was one of my friends birthday and we all planned to have birthday celebration in our ‘Celebration’ Mall. We were ready with the birthday cake but there was no place to cut the cake; Finally we found our space on the 3rd Floor in front of the local shoppee zone. We found a table to place the birthday cake and when we were about to cut the cake the security guards caught us all and stopped us to ‘Celebrate’.  So My question is why can’t a Mall named ‘THE CELEBRATION MALL’ have some space(apt suggestion for this will be to get a FOOD COURT soon!) to really ‘celebrate’ Waiting to hear the answer from them.. 😉

Not enough place to sit:

How do you feel when after buying a McDonald’s Meal on Sunday you don’t find enough space to sit comfortably and have your meal. I hope that sentence was enough to describe my feelings. This BIG Mall with 90,000 sq. ft Area don’t even have enough space to make proper seating for people who come there. 🙂 Anyways.. I hope they improve this too 😀

No Locker Rooms:

Again would add my personal incident in this heading.. 😛 Being a responsible citizen I always care to wear Helmet as my Local Traffic Police suggests. One fine day me along with my friends planned to go for movie; Maybe it was my first time to enter into celebration mall with a Helmet. 😛 When we went to PVR we found that no valuables were allowed inside. There was no place to keep our helmet or bags in the complete mall. As my tickets were already booked so I had to keep my Helmet outside in open space(maybe some construction site inside!!). After enjoying the movie with fear of losing my Helmet when we came out I found that I have really lost my HELMET worth : 1200Rs.  I don’t know whom should I blame is it the Mall Authority or PVR. I had my point so stated it here 😛

Official Website ain’t updated about Events:

Every now and than there are various events that keep happening in The Celebration Mall (Maybe In order to prove itself that it really celebrates :/ ) but their Official Website: is never updated about these events and schedules or even photos of these events.. 🙁 Its our generous suggestion to keep us all updated about your mall happenings through your site because we have more reasons to love it than to rather have 5 things to hate about it 🙂

There are still many points people hate such like not being allowed to clicks pictures inside, can’t run or have fun inside etc. Do Share your comments what are your views about the celebration mall. We will definitely inform the Mall Authorities and wait for their answers about this.. 😉



  • has taken the initiative to keep the site updated with upcoming events.
  • This Article was forwarded to Mall staff but No response from the Mall staff yet including the Managerial Team. :/

“Malls cannot operate in Udaipur. There is no such culture in the city. People of Udaipur will not go to malls.” These were some of the comments I got from the people of Udaipur, a few months ago. I took those comments with a pinch of salt. And when I
visited McDonald’s Udaipur, for the first time, in January, I was pleased to see what Celebration Mall was going to be.

Earlier today, When i heard about the official launch of Celebration Mall, I was more than happy. The first mall in the City of Lakes, is scheduled for a soft launch on Saturday, 2nd July, 2011. Not only it features the only McDonald’s store in Udaipur, it also features the city’s first multiplex, PVR, Easyday Market hypermarket (Bharti – Walmart), Food Celebrations food court, Reliance Trends department store, Crossword, Dominos Pizza and many more.
