“Compact but Great Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2012

On our first night in Jaisalmer, we wandered aimlessly around inside the fort with no idea where to eat. At random we selected Shiva Cafe because of is rooftop location.

The view is okay but not exceptional, there were only a couple of tables in the limited space available and the kitchen is hardly large enough to allow more than person inside. When we ordered beer and the waiter/chef disappeared downstairs, presumably to buy some from a local shop, we feared the worst.

As it turned out, however, the meal was superb - cooked lovingly within our sight - and the portion size was enough to feed 3-4 of us rather than just my wife and I.

“Best place i've found in 5 months travel!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2012

I am travelling for now 5 months, and this place is definitely the best have been to!! Only 250 rupees for a very spacious and clean double room! We had a big attached bathroom with hot shower and a private balcony with table and chairs! The guest house also have a cafe, they cook very good home food and gave us cooking class! We were suppose to stay for 2-3 days, but finally we've stay for 5 days! The owner are very nice people, very kind and friendly! Well, this is definitely a place where you feel like home!
