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. I would recommend no-go as the place is expensive as compaed to... More

Unnecessarily Expensive.. Free wifi was not working seems they have purposefully done it. If you have extra money please waste them here.

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

Had a nice dinner in the garden. Live music by very enthusiastic musicians. Staff barely understands English, this makes ordering your food slightly difficult. We received the bill instead of our order.

We had lunch and dinner (on separate days) from this place. Ambience - They have both outdoor and indoor seating. The outdoor one has a beautiful ambience at night, with candles lighting up the tables, and lights on the trees as well. There is a stage where live performances of Rajasthani culture take place (although some performances can interrupt conversation)... More

Pathetic food ! I AC was not working , the oil used was bad , place was stinking, very ordinary taste not even close to rajasthani food. They charged us for serving onions. Highly rated but not even worth a single penny .

Thank Alok K
