Ended up in this restaurant by chance and had a positive surprise. Located just on the outside of the Fort, you get quite good food for a decent price, specially recommendable the must-try side dish of Raita.

This is a nice place if you want to have the option to eat non-Indian food and get a break from spicy food. I had the vegetarian sizzler and a really good israeli salat, which we ordered twice.

We stopped for lunch on a sightseeing day around Jaisalmer. We were able to grab one of the few tables with a Fort view. Food was very good at a reasonable price. Would go again.
