Had read the reviews and thought it a must visit we popped in on passing late afternoon and thought we would consider for the evening meal. Whilst a number of staff were around nobody seemed to want to serve us and we had to call for service. Environment had potential

Desert boyz dhani is a must visit place for authentic rajasthani food. The folk dance in the evening is amazing. Thoroughly enjoyed the food and the time.

Very ordinary Staff even do not know how to serve food. Low quality food at very high cost. Free wifi is a bluff.

We had gone to the place for lunch after reading many good reviews on Tripadvisor. The place does not offer a great ambience (may be better at dinner - but daylight brings to light all the not-so-maintained aspects of the restaurant) and the food was definitely not appetizing.

We visited during the off season so it was not very busy. Great atmosphere and clean. Food was good but a little more expensive than some of the other highly rated restaurants in Jaisalmer.

Had a great evening here, food was delicious and the music players were excellent - they even invited us up to have a go at Indian dancing! A truly atmospheric evening!

We had the most wonderful evening here! A beautiful courtyard restaurant, with delicious food! They even had live traditional Indian music and dancing, which was fantastic. I would definitely recommend eating here
