“For an extraordinary evening”
Reviewed April 27, 2013

The view from the terrace in the evening is awesome. One can actually see all of illuminated Jodhpur as well as the beautiful Umed Bhawan Palace from there as you enjoy beverages or rajasthani delicacies. The restaurant also has a breathtaking view of the city through see through glass.

“Great dancing as entertainment”
Reviewed April 7, 2013

The entertainmnt here is great - Rajahstan folk dancing was marvellous. However, the buffet is on the average or even below average side - not much range, not great quality.

Divya B, Owner at Hanwant Mahal, responded to this review, April 26, 2013
Dear guest,

Thank you so much for visiting our restaurant. We're glad you enjoyed yourself, and in particular the Rajasthan folk dancing. We are constantly trying to provide a well rounded experience, with our food and our entertainment. It is heartening to see our efforts being appreciated. We apologise, if you felt the buffet was average, lacking quality and range. That is unacceptable and all steps will be taken to ensure that doesn't happen again. We hope to welcome you again in the future!

We ate on the terrace at Hanuwant Mahal with a beautiful view of Umaid Bhawan. The service and food were excellent. Definitely worth doing.

“Good food and view of the palace but not great value”
Reviewed March 4, 2013

Would not go back because it is just too pricey for India. Hard to get to location unless you have a driver. Main courses and most apps $10++ and $3 per coke. View was great, restaurant atmosphere not great. Very glad we got a table with a view of the palace. Most tables do not have this view.
