We went for lunch and ordered Chinese Chowmein, Chilli Paneer and Pizza. All three dishes had no taste and pizza was under baked and they took too long to serve these dishes !!! Never recommend !!!

We went there to have dinner and to see the dance performance which is at 8 pm. Nobody told us that the show was cancelled, the food was very ordinary, and when we received the bill...surprise! We were charged of taxes! but nowhere in the menu there was written that prices were given without taxes!

- Food quality is very mediocre as it do not contain any authentic Rajasthani taste. Just like any other restaurant. - Ambience is also very normal. There was no live music as claimed by the Dhani. - Staff/Management is also very non-sensitive towards customers or we can say inhospitable. They Sells bottled food/beverages at more than printed MRP. Give aggressive... More

There are two places to dine- outside in the garden with candle light and inside with baithak style seating. We sat inside because it was too cold. Tried Dal-Bati-Churma, Khichdi, Shahi paneer with nan. All were great. Highlight was the Dal bati churma. Tip: Go with empty stomach and order one dish at a time because Rajasthani food is heavy.

I went to Desert Boy's Dhani earlier as I spotted a fun Indian Birthday party going on. Ambiance is comfortable with the garden and old tree, but that is as far as it goes. Cost for a thali was an inflated 200 rupees, and the curries were probably the worst I have had in India. Naan was at least cooked... More

Disappointing after having such good food at our hotel. Pros: 1. Location: Situated in a small lane from the main road - so easily accessible 2. Ambiance: Seating is... More

The food was very ordinary, so was the service. The place was too dimly lit. The overall ambience, though was worth the visit.
