Good Restaurant In Jaisalmer

Great Restaurant serving Indian Delicacies at very reasonable rates.. Food is good in taste and even quality is good. Also location nearby Gadisar lake makes it easily reachable.

The place has live performances by local artists. The eating area is an open garden. The food was decent, could have been better. Better could have been if bati was not fried.

This was our first trip to Jaisalmer. Earlier, we have been to Jaipur, Jodhpur, Udaipur, Pushkar ji, Bharatpur, Alwar, and Sariska. Where ever we went, good and traditional Rajasthani food was not easily available except for in Pushkarji. Even in Jaisalmer, good hotels' menu did include rajasthani food, but it was not available; and we were told that we can... More

Desert boy Dhani... Great Food. I have been to most of the restaurants in Jaisalmer... nowhere I found authentic taste ( except for the one in Hotels).. But Desert Boy Dhani have great taste + rates are very resonable. Ambience is great... Sitting in open air in tree shade multiply the pleasure.

We had just driven into Jaisalmer hungry and were looking for a place to eat. We found this close to the main road and boasting a garden. The good part ended there. We asked for lime sodas which were brought in glasses so dirty they had prints of curry on them apparently from the previous users. The food was a... More
