Welcome to The Arches, Rishikesh (Top Riverside Restaurant In Rishikesh). My name is Ishan Bhandari and it’s my absolute pleasure to enjoy and run this restaurant in one of the most beautiful riverside location in Laxman Jhula Rishikesh-upon-Ganga River. The Arches, Rishikesh is designed by An American lady ‘Aura Dave’ From Los Angeles. The arches reopened after a major renovation on 10 oct 2021. You may find me here 7 days a week to ensure everything we serve remains true to my guiding principle of Love All, Serve All.
Location, location, location
The Arches Café is situated on Laxman Jhula Chowk, inside Hotel Ishan – A Riverside Retreat overlooking the River Ganges, an idyllic location at any time of year. And when the weather permits, glass doors are opened out onto the riverside for you to enjoy the irresistible appeal of all day dining.
Something for everyone
It may surprise you to know that 82% of our customers are not vegetarian, but as I always say “You don’t miss the meat when you come to my restaurant!” All our food is homemade from fresh, mainly organic ingredients. You won’t find additives, colorings or harmful fats – everything is natural and we only use olive oil – in fact 80% of our menu is completely fat free. We have an extensive, mainly organic menu suitable for vegan, gluten free and wheat free diets. Even non-vegetarian’s love our food so why not come along and give us a try?
How it all started
In 2020 an unexpected lockdown happened which gave an opportunity to connect with few people, mostly foreigners and yogi’s who were stranded here in Rishikesh while their spiritual visit to India. This proved to be a turning point in my life; I became a vegetarian and soon after spotted a gap in the market for a good vegetarian restaurant and, in 2021, The Arches opened its doors based around my family and friend’s teaching.
As an ethical consumer, we prioritize the healthiness and the organic nature of our food. We strongly support the local community and practice “Buy Local and Be Local”. We buy organic and Fair Trade products wherever possible and use only natural ingredients in our food. Our ultimate aim is to educate future generations in healthy eating and well being.
So if you’ve never tried vegetarian, but are looking for good, healthy food we’re here to tempt your taste buds – so book your table and join us today!
Note – With the easy access to the internet and the availability of information on standard factory farming practices, we have become more aware of the cruelty that animals are subjected to in various businesses, especially those dealing in animal products.
We all know that killing an animal is not justified, but how many of you know that even in industries like dairy or egg production, animals are vastly tortured to satiate human food desires or make money?
The awareness of the NORMALISED cruelty doesn’t only sadden us from the core but also makes us more determined to do our bit to minimise it.
We at Salvus have decreased 30% of meat or animal produced products from our menu, and we hope that the devastating condition of animal cruelty vanishes as more of us join hands to do our bits!
