Small restaurant with floor seating only, unique atmosphere, and great view. If you are lucky enough to get the table/seat on the balcony you have an amazing view of the city - great to watch the people below while waiting for your food. We've not found any other place in Jaisalmer like it. Good service, good food, good price.

This very peaceful and heart touching place. If you com Jaislamer and not visited this place, your journey call failure. You can see the best view of jaisalmer from here and find the peace of mind. I felt in love with this place. Seriously awesome.

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

the place is cozy and nice... the service was just great and we had our dinner in a really nice balcony with a breath taking view. So it was a nice experience overall but the best was the food.. you gotta try the kair sangri!

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.
