This place is beautiful, with lovely scenic views of the city. Prices are cheap & the food is decent. The butter nan was garbage though. But overall its a nice place

Owned by Haveli hotel owner across the street. Try the upstairs view place for lunch or dinner. Food is clean although place looks like it's not.

Probably the most different and beautiful sitting arrangement in the fort area. Beautifully furnished area below the rooftop. Amazing view of city. Food is great too. Sunset view is great. Must visit.

Fantastic little gem tucked away in a back Street of the old fort. We had dinner here on the little balcony: food was good, atmosphere is chilled and the staff is helpful and attentive. Definetely recommended!

We came to Surya more or less by chance on our last evening in Jaisalmer, and lucked into the two-person setting in the little stone balcony hanging off the fort wall. That alone would have made for a memorable experience, but the food, especially the special thali, was also delicious, probably the best we had in Jaisalmer. Highly recommended.

Thank rockyknoll
