I have been there in Restaurant, as waiter serves without any Manners. Felt disheartened for Poor Hospitality so left the place in between. Clerk manners are also not good. My Advice is not to visit if u want ur Self respect.

This is a lovely way to spend a winter evening by the fire and eat tandoori food. The food is superb. The dal makhani and the kebab plater. The portions are generous and well cooked. The service excellent. It is very popular place to dine with the hotel guests.

The ambience makes it seem a bit crowded. But that belies its true nature. The food, particularly the speciality rajasthani dishes like ghate ke subji and lal mass are divine. The service is truly excellent - piping hot rotis arrive almost by magic. For that alone, they deserve their great rating.

Food was finger-licking good, specially the dal makhani over there was really appetizing. Also the garden restaurant is pretty well maintained. The staff is polite and really welcoming.

We dined at the Bal Samand lake palace - an open-air restaurant in midst of the orchards and under the stars, every table is warmed by a wood fire, in the background there were Indian musicians playing local instruments. The chefs made their presence felt with mouthwatering kebabs showcasing culinary expertise...

I travelled to Rajasthan last year but memories of bal Sam and lake palace are fresh in my brain. It's a retreat to stay at this palace in the hustle bustle of Jodhpur town. Here horse stable is maintained so well, I used to go every morning to greet those horses. This is the best place for those who desire... More

Bal Samand Lake Palace serves one of the best North Indian Punjabi cuisine in Jodhpur. The food is amazing and the ambience of the place is something you could not ask for anything more. Along with the meal you can also enjoy a walk of the property which is very beautiful.
