While there are a few good eating places in Araku working as multi cuisine restaurants, there mostly are locals dhabas serving Chinese, Odiya, South Indian platters to the travellers. While the food can be rated decent, don't keep high expectations for a classy ambience. For non-vegetarians, try the bamboo chicken that is served by a small vendor at the premises of the tribal museum. This can easily be the food highlight of your trip to Araku Valley. A few of the food outlets include Vasundhara Restaurant, Chandrammas Spicy Restaurant, Hills View and Sri Annapurna Tiffin Center.
