Experience

An ideal place to have food in Marwari style sitting. The contemporary sitting was also available. The best part of the restaurant was outdoor sitting arrangement under a sour apple tree. Food preparation was also good. However, there are lot of flies in the open air sitting area.

The ambience is good. Whether you sit in open garden, or you sit in air conditioned hall, you would like it. The service is also good. But nothing more. The quantity of food was very less for the price we paid, the quality of food was also objectionable (we had to drain out oil from our food). Even the taste... More

The seating arrangement is unique in this place. You sit on the ground covered with carpets and the food is served on low table before you. The food is purely Rajasthani Vegetarian. We had Kadi, Paneer,garlic curry and Khichdi. The paneer dish was a let down but the kadi, garlic curry and khichdi were very good. The service was non-obstrusive... More

The place doesn't look very fancy (or clean) specially if you go for lunch, but it's one of the best meals I had in India and that is a lot to say. Order the Kaju (Cashew curry) and the Desert Fruit Mix.

We had a delicous lunch here! With beers ☺It had a good looking garden area outside but as it was hot we ate in the aircon. We sat at a low table on the floor. Food was well priced and yummy

Not the best but definitely not the worst. Good for a stop over if you are staying close. I had a stuffed potato dish that came with one small stuffed potato in gravy. Was good, but not quite the amount that I expected, just an observation. Beautiful courtyard and also a nice air-conditioned area.

We ate here this afternoon under the big tree in the courtyard. It was a hot day and every other customer sat inside but we enjoyed our time and the meal was very good. We ordered 7 different dishes and 3 different naan to go with some tasty drinks - I love the cold coffee with ice cream. At the... More
