Loved the decore and ambiance

Definitely a must in jaisalmer! Amazing view from your own little balcony. Quirky authentic decore. Lost count of how many times we came to eat and recharged here. Staff friendly and food about the best you'll get in jaisalmer exspecially in low season.

The place is just sooo colourful and pretty! It has a nice view on the city and it is definitely a very good place for escaping from the daily heat and having a juice or lassi. We had some food there, which was average, but the prices are reasonable and the service is fast. The waiter will ask you a... More

Colorful hand painted décor. If possible, sit in the private balony overlooking the street far below the fort.

Never has a cold sweet lime soda been so welcome. Visiting Jaisalmer during the hottest months has to have a plus side and this little gem is one. Perched up high it collects the breeze. I had the place to myself, so settled down with a lovely chicken dish, lots of water and lime soda and read. Was and highlight... More

High up inside Jaisalmer fort, a 50 rupee tuk tuk ride up from the car park outside the main gate and very close (1 minute walk) from our hotel Killa Bhawan, whose owner recommended it to us for lunch. Budget eats, good enough for us to come back again next day. The entrance through a courtyard is not promising but... More

We had a few drinks here as we sat on cushions on a balcony with panoramic views over the City and desert. The drinks were fine, but the real attraction here are the views!

The food is excellent, cheap (around 100rp for veg meal), and great location inside the fort overlooking the town. Great view from the balcony. The food is safe as they make it with mineral water. The restaurant owner is really nice as well. Service is very casual and they don't hassle (you can stay for hours on the cushions using... More
