The décor features a sunny travel feel, with chic cabanas and landscaped gardens. The Terrace is open everyday for dinners as well as lunches (winter only) and can also be booked for banquets. Bijolai’s interior attempts to reflect the encounter between the traditional and the contemporary. Consequently, the restaurant is characterized by simplicity with its crisp, clean and uncluttered lines that reflect the 1559 AD spirit and atmosphere. The ambience at Bijolai presents a harmonious balance between the classic and the modern, between the known and the wild.

Reading the reviews here and also hearing from friends about Bijolai palace, we were looking forward to a good meal here. In fact we stayed at the Water Habitat resort, so it was our staple restaurant too. The food is way below average.

We were visiting Kailana Lake and stopped at Bijolai for lunch. The food was typical Rajasthani cuisine and we loved it. The place has an ethnic décor which lends a very traditional Indian feel to it and character. We visited it a second time too for its food and service. The location of the hotel is such that one gets... More

a beautiful setting but lacks professional management. Food is average plus needs some polishing at the service department. Yet it offers a ideal setting for a romantic outing (who cares for food n service then :-))

Bijolai Restaurant is settled in hills near Kailana lake in Jodhpur. Hills, water and silence with good food. We thoroughly enjoyed our food, which was also not bad. Staff though were novice and interior very basic. Still good experience.

Excellent ambience and wonderful service topped by delicious food made it an evening to remember. The staff were very friendly and obliging. Special thanks to Mr Sudesh Kalla for organising a surprise birthday cake at a very short notice. Dr Hemant Ojha Birmingham UK
