Monica Rooftop restaurant is not difficult to find in Mandawa although its only known among tourists. Its a small roof top setup with few tables and chairs kept in open and a reasonable covered sitting area as well on a residential building. One has to climb stairs through someone's house. Food is good, service is better compare to many other... More

We were late for lunch. Seeing hardly anyone to take our order, we anticipated super slow service. However, it turned out to be other way round. Their veggies have Rajasthani flavour in it.

Its the 3 storey house of a native family, the roof-top they have converted into seating area for a restaurant. Its embarrassing to climb through the living space of a family to reach for a good evening and food. Now food - average! 'Chalu-types'. Nothing authentic, or great. Chapatis at Rs. 20 a piece, small naans at 3-4 times the... More

This restaurant has a reputation that precedes its quality. The food is average. The decor is bizarre. And you have to climb a good number of stairs for a meal that you could get anywhere.

Went there as we stayed next door. Noted it was recommended in guide books and TripAdvisor. Did not live up to our expectations in relation to quality of food, and cannot truly recommend. One of the group had chicken soup. Was most unconventional as a large piece of red tandoori chicken was chopped up into large pieces and chucked into... More

A nice restaurant with a good choice of excellent food. Nice and quiet place to go for dinner or lunch. Very friendly people who wish to make dinner a nice experience.

We had read trip advisor reviews and though our guide wanted to take us elsewhere, we ended up coming here late afternoon. The hotel looked quirky and the rooftop bar was very nice though I expected better views. Service was attentive but not very friendly, I think waiter was a bit shy!..?? People at the next table seemed to be... More

We tried here because it had a good reputation. I am still trying to figure out how. We've been to a few rooftop restaurants on our trip around India, this is so far the worst. The atmosphere is non existent the paint is dirty and discoloured and there is a big ugly noisy cooler in the middle of where you... More
