Excellent food and view

The restaurant at the Jagat Niwas Palace Hotel is not only a beautiful location on the rooftop looking out over the lake, but the food is excellent! We ate dinner both nights here and loved every bite. Dramatic views of The City Palace as well.

Tried by recommendation from a certain guidebook, wasn't disappointed. Indian dishes were all good and tasty (we had couple of them, all among classic fare). Lassi was good too. Service was efficient enough. The only one thing I didn't like was the fact they allow customers to smoke at a table, which sometimes can be of a great disturbance to... More

We really, really wanted to love this restaurant - the views are spectacular, the flowers, white arches and sweeping staircase make for a beautiful sight. Romantic with a capital R. But then we ordered (actually we tried for about 15 minutes to order) a cocktail. The service was as poor as the cocktail. The lal Maas was acceptable, but the... More

The biryani, and the kebabs and even the butter chicken was different. It dint have the regular strong aromas but was subtle in flavor. The breakfast was delicious.

It was our first marriage anniversary. We were told that the restaurant is very good and it was really (the word I would use is ) "Bhavya". The service was not less than any five star hotel, they will treat you very well. We ordered drinks including single malt and normal non-veg food, food was OK, not grate; this is... More

The place offers a very decent ambience over-looking lake Pichola, Taj Lake View, etc. However, the staff, the services, the attitude is too cold and at times hostile. This was our second experience of the same nature. The food quality was reasonable.

Got the seating at a special isolated "Jharoka". Superb ambience and the night view of the lake pichola as well as the taj lake palace. A very good experience although gets really chilly. The food and the service was good and quick.

Extremely good Indian food at the best location - on the banks of the lake. We had a late lunch there and combined it with the best possible sun downer. You have to see the sunset from the terrace of Jagat Niwas.

It's worth a meal to soak this venue in, we were lucky enough to get one of the worlds best views. The Virgin Mary was refreshing.fish tandoor was good , the mixed veggie semi dry curry was very good .the little veggie cake ( can not recall their names) are bland and not recommended. Service was very good

We came to this restaurant for our Diwali dinner. It's in a lovely tourist area full with cute little shops and nice staff. The location is lovely as it overlooks the lake. As we were there for diwali it was beautiful as there was constant fireworks in the evening sky. The prices were great for drinks and food but compared... More
