Food was quite satisfactory ... but the view was gorgeous. Staff seem a little disinterested and getting sufficient ice in a drink on a day when it was 46 degrees was difficult.

Such a lovely view and setting. Chicken Tikka Masala was really tasty and the naan bread is aswell. Definitely worth coming here for a meal while in udaipur.

We had a lazy lunch here. The views were incredible and the food was very good. The fact that this is a old havelli added to the experience.
