excellent food but i little over priced as its the only good restaurant in Mandawa. You can get veg and non veg food. The owner is informative and very polite.

Spending a nice summer evening on the quiet roof terrace of this beautifully restored haveli is bliss. The birds and parrots sing around you, a breeze is carried over to you and you sit in a comfortable setting with friendly people. The food is excellent, too. We especially loved the Chilie paneer, which was truly the best we had in... More

Whilst staying at Castle Mandawa we ate at Monica's several times. We walked the back alley from the Castle - not at all dangerous, but do carry a torch. We were the only customers one day and another day there were a few others. Although there is rooftop seating, it was chilly out and we opted to eat indoors. It... More

We approached the place form the back, through narrow and dimly lit back alleys - not for the fainthearted. But it was worth it, the food was good and the service excellent. We were famished, asked for some dal tadka to gert something fast, and miracuosly it was on our table in less than five minutes. Very good service, hard... More

We had lunch here. The building was so beautiful and the terrace so welcoming and the dishes were excellent. I had the best chicken tikka masala. The prices are quite low, so if you're in Mandawa, pay them a visit.

Monica is situated in a beautifully decorated haveli. We were the only customers and were royally treated. The food was excellent and the service was first class. Mandawa itself is an interesting place, although what will be here in ten or twenty years is doubtful as many of the painted buildings are falling apart

On a recent trip to India, we were directed to this Restaurant. It was full of tourists - no locals - we should hev recognised the warning signs. The food was cold - when we asked for it to be reheated , it was barely touched. The servings were poor - so bad , we walked out.

We were the only people having lunch in the rooftop restaurant in their family home. We sat inside as it was too cold to be out on the roof. The waiter was polite and attentive and the vegetarian food we chose was delicious and inexpensive. I would love to have had time to go back there again. The place is... More

My travelling notes note it was "similar to the rest" so nothing really standout. Food was okay to good service the same, if we had stayed another night in Mandawa we would probably have gone back there for dinner. Would recommend
