I visited this place along with my family for dinner on suggestion of my driver. The place is very dark with very average food and average enterainment. The.place had many mosquito. The good thing about this place is iconic view of the fort from the garden.

Least place to prefer for food in Jaisalmer. We were 16 at a time and their services were terrible: food was okay but had to wait a lot for a single chapati after served all vegetables. They do not have objective to serve customer so it was really intolerable & poor services, horrible experience and pathetic for mood, even washrooms... More

No ambience garden restaurant with Rajasthani drum and dance and puppet show. The entertainment was really very poor, I rather not watched. They could leave out the dancer en puppet player and just have the drums to make it look more like entertainment. The food was average Indian food, definately caters the Indian public, wouldn't recommend for westerners.

We were recommended this place as the hotel we stayed in did not provide dinner on the night we checked in. The food was strictly average with the taste being "confused", not knowing if they want to cater to the Indian taste or the foreign visitor's taste. Can be avoided

Asked for mild, everything came out spicy, asked for dry curry, came out with a lot of sauce. Sent them back, came out worse. Entertainment is lacking, not very much dancing, mainly drum playing. There is definitely better.

Jaisalmer has a 100 options to eat great food at. We were lucky or unlucky to see one of their men coming out of kitchen scratching in all the wrong places wearing a filthy, once white now grim kurta. Almost puked the weird slimy food they served. We fled away instantly.much much better options are available for all budgets

We are surprised as to how this place got a place on Tripadvisor. The seating is on the floor and is okay but the A/cs don't function. Staff appears tired and disgruntled. Meals were pathetic. Worst meals we'v had in a long time.Billing took like ages. Thank God we come out in good health.

This is a must visit place for a veterinarian foodie in Jaisalmer, it first it is little difficult to locate in it is not on main road. However the place from inside is very specious and the ambiance inside makes the overall experience unique. Though most of the items in the menu are typical north indian dishes, however while eating... More
