Nice rooftop view and good food

We were taken here for lunch by our guide during an Intrepid tour. 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

Monica restaurant has a very good home maid Indian food. The restaurant is located at the second floor of a residential building. If you are a tourist you better go there with a guide (especially for dinner). There is a large variety of veg and non veg food. We tried the vegetarian and it was simply delicious. I strongly recommend... More

We were taken here as part of our group tour. It's a beautiful building from the outside. You need to climb a lot of steps to get to the open rooftop where you can dine under cover or outside. The Mutton Garlic was OK but nothing exceptional. Cheese burger was very salty.

One reviewer wrote: ‘if this is Mandawa’s best, don’t bother.’ Fortunately this place isn’t the best, though it’s as good as any rated on T/A and I wouldn’t quite say ‘don’t bother’, though this town is no gourmet paradise. It’s central and easy to find if you ignore the sign pointing to the fort, which then involves some labyrinthine unlit... 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!

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.
