We spend every evening sitting in alibaba dinning hall with Aku, our new Indian friend. The food was nice and tasty. The atmosphere take us back to old time and decoration was fabulous. ACU was a great chat and had fun knowing village stories. Everything was good.

This one is an absolute delight. The place is utterly charming and colorful. The view is absolutely breathtaking! The service is a bit slow and the food id pretty average, but the staff and the ambiance totally makes up for it.

Tucked away but a real nice place. A great view from the balcony above the wall of the fort. Very unique 'seats'. Very friendly waiter. We had pizza and it tasts wonderful. The food is not expensive but very good.

This restaurant has really colorful decorations and if you sit out on the small balcony there is great views. However, much like other restaurants in the fort the food is of the multicuisine bland variety. There was very little flavour in the food, certainly nothing special. The service was good from our waiter, but it is a little more expensive... More

The eatery is very nice and cosy, with lovely decor and traditional sitting. It has a lovely little balcony hanging from the walls of the fort over the city - the view is just amazing! Someone may say another place created for tourists - maybe that's right, but it's somehow different than the others. The food is very good, and... More
