What to say about this restaurant except that it is simply one of the best addresses in Jaisalmer. Exceptional products, divine cuisine for the palate which is matched the friendliness of the owners who welcome you like family.

Well, all the idiotic tourists (both Indian and international) who expect authentic rajasthani food to be served under the full moon by an elephant, while sitting in the bathroom of the maharaja with 2 dozen dancers and servants prancing around them can finally get back to the real india. This is truly how indian food gets authentic. Granny makes it... More

We decided to visit this place after reading the reviews on Tripadvisor. As soon as we reached Jaisalmer fort, we dropped into her house as we have to place the order in advance. When we met her, we were wondering if we should place the order or not as Chandra Aaaji is very old and frail. But, she assured us... More

Mrs. Vyas has been cooking for people in her home for decades. Since her husband passed away a few years back, I found that she is still serving meals to people who call in. The food is spectacular. It's nothing like the restaurant meals that are cooked for the masses. This is the real-deal home cooked food with awesome taste.

I saw great reviews about this place on trip advisor so decided to visit. I was with my husband and we thought this will be a small thali restaurant. We had to reach this place after climbing a very steep fleet of stairs. When we reached the top we realised it is someone's house with one room cum kitchen and... More

I had read about this place on trip advisor. I was shocked to see that this service is actually run by a very old lady who does not like to depend on her son in law. Even though she is suffering from very bad back pain, she still manages to sell 3-4 meals and make her own living. She runs... More

Just been out of the place and yet to come out of the experience. Visited the place after reading reviews from trip advisor, guess everyone who visited this place did so. Once I entered the premise it was nothing like I remotely expected. Please visit the place, please place the order in advance. Don't miss it if you visit Jaisalmer... More

It is a classic home style food but the difference lies in the love that the lady offers. A granny for one and all, she cooks the food fresh and is conversant with english. A must visit.

We ate here and had masala chai and the special thali. Vya is incredibly sweet and very welcoming. The experience of chatting to her and seeing her home was wonderful. We were able to sit and talk with her while she prepared our food in front of us. There was plenty of tasty food and her chai is delicious! This... More
