We reached to the place bit late in the evening. The place was at little isolated location. Mr Kaku was quite an amazing host. We were served with the most delicious food of Jaisalmer. Fort view was awesome. This property got everything to praise about leaving the location which is little far from other well known destinations.

Took a while to locate this place but once you are there, you can't imagine what awaits you. Run by a young dynamic guy, this place is the last thing I expected to find in a place like Jaisalmer. Had a few beers & a hookah (Really amazed to have a hookah considering it is banned in Mumbai). The food... More

A marvellous view over the whole city and fort, amazing drinks and food...that was cafe the kaku for us. Friendly staff and attentive waiters, magical sunsets..and all this a bit far from the main tourist areas and hassle, above it all. You should try it yourself!

Hop on the back of a motorbike and whizz through the streets of Jaisalmer for five minutes, and you'll find yourself gazing out at one of the best views in Jaisalmer! We arrived really quite late at night, but still received an amazing welcome. We wound up sitting around the fire pit for hours, warming out toes, enjoying a beer,... More

Visited Cafe The Kaku for lunch with my wife and son. The food quality is OK and nothing exceptional (tried Jodhpuri Chicken and Kadi Pakora). The views from the cafe are outstanding.

Its a nice Cafe.The place is a little away from the huzz buzz of the local market. Its got a perfect location, the view is amazing , food is nice. Would suggest family with young or small children should avoid in night as its very windy being open Cafe. Ambience is also nice, well maintained

Excellent Service, Food and View. Best place to eat in Jaisalmer. There is another Cafe called Kuku but it is not the same, so don't be mistaken. Cafe Kaku is a must visit.

Kaku is located in a residential area of Jailsamer at a high elevation. It has inside and outside seating and the views of the fort are outstanding. This is a simply decorated restaurant with an outstanding chef and solid service. The food is multi layered in taste and consistently good. Fit for foodies willing to accept simplicity.
