The night is falling and the environment becomes more exotic. It was a joy to sitt on the roof top and enjoy the food. The staff inquired about the strength of the food with ment lot to us, not used to eat super spicy food. Good food and excellent service. Recommended truly.

Ate here as I got late to Mandawa and looked around and most places were closed. Monica restaurant was open and they served me very spicy daal and half cooked rice. I ate it for the lack of options, but would not reccomend to anyone. Also the restaurant has posters of the daughter of the owner (hence Monica) which is... More

We have eaten here four times in the last two days and the food has been AMAZING. The restaurant is very understated but the food makes up for it . The service is very friendly and the prices are good . Clean toilet ( with toilet paper , which is a bonus in India) . Cold beer . Highly recommend.

Monica Rooftop restaurant is not difficult to find in Mandawa although its only known among tourists. Its a small roof top setup with few tables and chairs kept in open and a reasonable covered sitting area as well on a residential building. One has to climb stairs through someone's house. Food is good, service is better compare to many other... More

We were late for lunch. Seeing hardly anyone to take our order, we anticipated super slow service. However, it turned out to be other way round. Their veggies have Rajasthani flavour in it.

Its the 3 storey house of a native family, the roof-top they have converted into seating area for a restaurant. Its embarrassing to climb through the living space of a family to reach for a good evening and food. Now food - average! 'Chalu-types'. Nothing authentic, or great. Chapatis at Rs. 20 a piece, small naans at 3-4 times the... More

This restaurant has a reputation that precedes its quality. The food is average. The decor is bizarre. And you have to climb a good number of stairs for a meal that you could get anywhere.

Went there as we stayed next door. Noted it was recommended in guide books and TripAdvisor. Did not live up to our expectations in relation to quality of food, and cannot truly recommend. One of the group had chicken soup. Was most unconventional as a large piece of red tandoori chicken was chopped up into large pieces and chucked into... More
