A nice restaurant with a good choice of excellent food. Nice and quiet place to go for dinner or lunch. Very friendly people who wish to make dinner a nice experience.

We had read trip advisor reviews and though our guide wanted to take us elsewhere, we ended up coming here late afternoon. The hotel looked quirky and the rooftop bar was very nice though I expected better views. Service was attentive but not very friendly, I think waiter was a bit shy!..?? People at the next table seemed to be... More

We tried here because it had a good reputation. I am still trying to figure out how. We've been to a few rooftop restaurants on our trip around India, this is so far the worst. The atmosphere is non existent the paint is dirty and discoloured and there is a big ugly noisy cooler in the middle of where you... More

We visited this place for lunch when we were in Mandawa. Our hotel did not serve non-veg food and hence we tried out this place which had a decent no. of reviews on tripadvisor. The place is nothing great and the worst part was the food we ate. It was terrible. I am usually not that blunt while writing however... More

I am glad we ate here instead of the hotel as this is the home of the chef and his family. Dishes were cooked on the spot and I even looked around the house/haveli. The matriarch was chanting her purja in the prayer room when we were leaving. Very authentic and homely.

Outstanding: Chicken Tikka Masala and the Butter Chicken. Rest of the dishes: Very Good to Good. Looking arround to other places to eat: We come back and eat... More

This restaurant is must visit not only because of it's nice food but also because of the way to reach here. There are three people who run this restaurant. It is situated on second floor and a family lives on the ground floor. Its is a very ordinary restaurant with above average food. The prices are on little higher side.

We order aloo mattar(peas with potato) and keema masala(masala mince meat). The peas was very hard and not fully cooked and quite tasteless. The keema didn't look like mince meat. It was in fact fatty meat pieces and extremely 'chewie'. It also didn't taste fresh.
