We have been to Dakshina Chitra outside Chennai earlier, and was expecting this to be more of the same. However, this place was much more crowded (and with less lighting and open spaces - some areas could really be unsafe for families / kids); the performers were too commercial and ready to demand payment (after you have paid a hefty entrance fee to go in!) There are too many shops, with the people at the counters looking bored; it would have been lovely if these kiosks were manned by craftsmen who would explain their craft with passion.
The one thing we loved was the "Royal Rajasthani Thali" - worth paying extra for this, and make sure you go on an empty stomach. A sit-down dinner in a candle-lit environment, with warm wait staff who serve limitless food that is delicious Rajasthani fare, to the accompaniment of folk singing.
A tiring evening trip outside Jaipur, the dinner being what made it worth the visit..
