Description: THE LAUGHING BUDDHA CAFE HAS MOVED ...to bigger and better premises! Yes, it's a little sad, and even slightly disturbing, to see the stairs we painted to advertise the Laughing Buddha Cafe now used to advertise another restaurant! Don't be fooled by it and walk down the road a little further. Just before you reach the 'sweet alley' to your left and Gau Ghat on your right, you will see the trusty Laughing Buddha Cafe banner fly again. We have changed the side of the road and we have changed the size of the cafe, but Sheru's much-loved vegan dishes are the same - he still makes his own peanut butter and famous banana bread and he still brews an excellent coffee for you! We are sure you will love the curries, the Buddha salads, the Lassis, the freshly baked bread, chutneys & sauces that set off Sheru's special Indian/European fusion dishes so well and have you come back for more again and again...

I came here almost everyday during my time in Pushkar, mainly because of the filtered Kerala coffee and the delicious locally sourced food. But also because they donate 50% of the profit to a local charity which helps kids in rural areas to receive an education.

Highly recommended!

Not meaning to not take any complaint seriously, but The Laughing Buddha Cafe wouldn't have the excellent standing on TripAdvisor if we would serve hair in the dishes you mentioned, or, as you suggest, have filthy and unhygienic food service to offer.

The positive feedback we receive from real customers, the ones who don't just sign up to leave a negative impact for one restaurant, would simply not happen. It further speaks for itself that, interestingly, you indeed ate all your food and didn't mention anything about hair in your food while you were at the cafe...

Sadly, haters can be found everywhere. So can envy from other restaurants who enlist others to leave bad reviews as to up their own standing by putting others down... and some people simply get a kick out of leaving their negativity behind. Thankfully, most people can tell the real from the fake when reading reviews.

Much love to you!

Price affordable, nice décoration, service ok

Popped in here for snacks & drinks on the rooftop. It’s cool vibe & cheap food prices were welcomed above the hustle and bustle of Pushkar market. Definately recommend!
