My wife, sister-in-law and I had planned to go out for an early dinner in Jodhpur, only to find out when we arrived at the restaurant at 6:15 pm that it didn't open until 7:30. This also proved to be the case for all of the other restaurants we wanted to go to in that area, but we found Ajit Bhawan Palace quite by chance and were told that their restaurant was open for dinner, so in we walked along their driveway and into a beautiful peaceful space. The hotel is large but we had no difficulty finding our way to the restaurant, where we were told that we could have drinks and snacks by the swimming pool, as the evening buffet would not be ready for another 20 minutes. So we enjoyed the ambience of the pool and then walked down to have dinner. We all chose European items from the a la carte menu as a change from our three-week long diet of Indian food, and then had delicious desserts. We were entertained throughout our meal with a very polished performance of Rajasthani music played by a group of five musicians. Our meal came to less than CAN$20 per person.
We enjoyed our dinner so much that we came back the next morning for the buffet breakfast. This was not quite as good as dinner, but still quite satisfactory.
