“Best View, Location n Servise for Dinner @ Fort Top @ Jaisalmer”
Reviewed December 30, 2012

Probably the best place @ Fort in terms of Food View of the city, Service n Food. If you going to Jaisalmer your journey is incomplete unless and until you had dinner @ Surya. It has open area @ terrace and covered cozy place to eat and drink. Sitting at Window side @ terrace is an awesome experience as you can have 180 degree view of the city in the city. Staff is very much Friendly. Whether u r going with kids or u r going this place should not be missed. Food is awesome & so is hospitality.

“Great food and service”
Reviewed December 15, 2012

The main room is charming and well decorated. You can get a great view of jaisalmer from one of the balconies.

The food was excellent as I asked for a butter dal which wasn't on the menu and they made me one anyway.

It was quiet when I went so talked to the staff and the owner aku while I was there and they are a very friendly bunch. I highly recommend grabbing a bite there.

“My Ali Baba Room”
Reviewed November 24, 2012

This is the favorite place inside of the very old fort of Jaisalmer.

The place is simple, rustic, cute and comfortable. I love the carpet, the cushions, the walls painted in pastel colors and all the little things around.

You can feel the breeze from the window. And of course, who can beat the view?

“amzing view”
Reviewed August 31, 2012

how do udescribe a small eating joint that has steel chairs and tables and a very narrow approach to a cute site that makes u forget food .?
thats surya ...no hard to find as it is close to and before canon point
ask what is available and do not waste your time with the menu we tried out the sp butter chicken -paneer tikka masala with plain rotis
the food was tasty and the water was chilled


the view is great but it could do wit

a cleaner toilet
cleaner table cloth
and a cleaned sitting at the prized spot -that looks over the city ...go at night but not later than 10 pm to see the city and gadisar lake laid out in all its beauty

“Great find, amazing view!”
Reviewed April 18, 2012

We stumbled upon this restaurant one night while wandering Jaisalmer Fort looking for a late dinner. We saw a sign advertising a great view, so we went upstairs and entered a small room with a few little alcoves where a few groups of people were sitting and eating. This is definitely a cool place to eat! You sit on the floor among comfy cushions. The atmosphere is very cozy and the decorations are colourful. I almost felt like I was in a place from the movie 'Aladdin'!

We sat in one of the alcoves with a little balcony that looks out over the fort and onto the rest of the city. The view at night was amazing, and the food here was delicious. I ordered a vegetarian thali which was very satisfying and cost 150 Rupees.

After finding this place, I felt like I had uncovered some great secret. I almost feel like I shouldn't be writing this review. This place is definitely worth wandering the narrow streets of the fort to find. You will not be disappointed!
