Nice rooftop view and good food

You have to go up a few flights of stairs but this is worthwhile as they have outdoor tables set-up which makes for a nice relaxing meal. Prices were very reasonble, and the service and food were good. They had Western style... read more

When we went to Monica's it was very busy, but the service was very good. The paneer jalfrezi and veg kofta were really delicious. The waiters were friendly and the chef very pleased we enjoyed his food!

Visited here last evening - the approach is pretty bad with... You need to make your way through a dingy gully to get to a large haveli... The haveli itself is straight out of Wasseypur ! You will need to climb through 2 floors (there are still actual residents) to reach the rooftop restaurant.. The menu has mostly common North... More

Stumbled in expecting little and were delighted. We ran into the cook walking around and at the restaurant, the owner. Wonderful connecting hospitality with time to chat. The fluffyest panzer we've had aster about ten orders around Rajaisthan.

Had lunch and dinner on the roof top! They serve excellent french fries and you should try their garlic tomatoes! Some mistakes in the bill were corrected without any discussion, very nice waiters!

We enjoyed our meal here even if we couldn't see over the walls very well. The chef was great. He made a special aubergine dish for us because I said I liked them so much. Ask for spicy and they will do that, although we could have had more.
