“Quaint in Jodhpur”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

The Bal Samman Lake Palace was converted into a hotel with two separate areas, the Palace and the Stables both converted into suites and hotel rooms respectively. I enjoyed the idea of a quiet place in Jodhpur, with a very neat and beautiful garden alive with peacocks, horses and monkeys! The only thing that took the quiet away was the highway right outside the swimming pool pavilion beaming with that particular sound of India, the automobile horns! On that day a truck filled with rock quarry broke out of the street, crashed thru the ramparts and fell into the hotel property!

“very enjoyable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

We stayed in Jodhpur for 1 night at Khas Bag and the owner(a friend) sent us to Bal Samand Lake palace restaurant for dinner ...and on arrival we chose to sit in the garden and have the tandoori grill dinner on offer!!! We were shown to a table and the waiter pulled a charcoal fire near us as it was absolutely freezing !!!! The menu was very straight forward and simple we chose the non vegetarian mixed grill which came with a Daal a side salad and naans, there was MORE then enough for the two of us on the platter which had a selection of meats and kebabs and all for the princely sum of Rs700/- ( £8/- ).
Freshly cooked straight from the tandoor on our table in 15 minutes ...can't beat that !!

“The best meal of the trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

We were staying at Bal Samand and had lunch at the hotel itself on the day of our arrival. In our 16-day Rajasthan trip, this was probably the best meal we had, purely in terms of the taste and quality of food.

“overrated”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

highly over rated if you are just going for a meal. while it is pretty if you are a resident, the food is average and the you have to pay to get a tour. not worth the effort
