“Rajastani Thali very good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2013

Found the food to be good at this restaurant with a view to the fort. The prices weren't the cheapest but the vegetarian Rajasthani Thali at 250rs was full of flavour and a large portion, and as a result of this I feel good value. The drinks were averagely priced. Service was fine, would happily return.

“Excellent food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2013

I highly recommend this restaurant. The food is excellent, and there is a wide variety of choices. The staff is extremely helpful. I ate most of my meals in Jaisalmer here, and after a few the waiter began to know my preferences and was able to suggest alternatives I would not have thought of. In every case his recommendations were excellent. I am not a vegetarian, which made finding restaurants good for me a little difficult to find in Rajasthan. This restaurant had lots of delicious choices for me (and even more for the vegetarians among you).

The main terrace has nice views of the fort. There is a back terrace that doesn't seem to be used much, with a wonderful, unobstructed view of the fort - but unfortunately, no shade.

“Excellent food, decent price, great service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2013

A nice back alley place just off the hustle and bustle if the main fort gate. Tucked down a side road it over looks the intersection of three roads.

The food here was really nice. It was came quickly and was hot and fresh.

The service was really good and the waiter was really attentive although he had a big table in the next room.

Drop in if you're ever in Jaisalmer.

“Wonderful food.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2013

This place is tucked away round the back, but any rickshaw driver or cab will be able to find it. The restaurant is on the top floor of a haveli, which is occupied on the lower floors. The service is good and the food is fantastic. What more could you ask for?

“Go for the Rajasthani thali”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2013

My friends and I went here on a recommendation from our safari company. We all got the Rajasthani or veg thali, and they were both delicious. The restaurant's more pricey than we usually go for (200 for veg thali, 250 for Rajisthani thali) but it was quite a bit of food, and fueled us for our 18 hour trip back to Delhi.
