We had the veg thali and were very pleased with it. This restaurant is more expensive than the guides seem to think, but the food is of a high standard and you will not be disappointed

read good things but experience is totally opposite. only one guy serving all the tables. so keep waiting for the food till he is done with the first table and forget about adding anything from the menu while eating... it may never come or will come after you will be done with the meal. Ambiance manageable but lacks majorly in... More

The unlimited refill vegetarian thali for 200rp was on of the best thali's i had in India. The location was perfect in front of the fort gate, overlooking the street and fort. I came back after my camel safari, and the food was great again. Staff not overly friendly and you will have to call them over, but i didn't... More

People told me good things about the Monica, but the service was horrible. I don't speak hindi, a well located restaurant should have someone who can answer questions in English. We just left.

We have been dining at a few places in Jaisalmer like e.g. Jaiisa italy just inside the Fort gate which was good but the best indian meals we had were iin Monica's restaurant in the street straight down from the Fort gate. Only about 50 meters down, there is a banner straight across the street where the entrance to the... More

Located just opposite the fort entrance this restaurant offers a good range of cuisine. Not the cheapest place but relatively good value. No grand decor but it was clean and spacious. We ordered the vegetarian thali and it was exceptional! The guy serving us seemed a little surly, but he was efficient enough. Roof top location meant there was a... More

Monica's Restaurant is located very near the Jaisalmer fort at the fort end of the market road. It is on the 2nd floor but the steep climb up is worth it. A seat on the terrace gives you a good view of the fort. The menu was varied: we ordered just a chicken handi with parathas and a bottle of... More

We had the vegetarian Thali and found it disappointing. The food was bland and the rice in the rice pudding undercooked. The service was good and the view nice, but we would not return.

Having passed by this restaurant with the intention of going elsewhere, we were directed here with a recommendation of good non-veg food-and were pleasantly surprised by what we found. On suggestion from the waiter, we ordered the Ker Sangeri (a mix of two desert beans) & the Chicken Ealaychee (flavoured with green cardamon) - and both were excellent! And, for... More

We eat here three times and the food was great, service prompt and the staff very friendly. It is one of the few non veg restaurants in Jaisalmer. It also has a great view of the main entrance gate to the fort
