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.

Bal samand Lake Palace is one of the fine resturants in Jodhpur. It is Located bit far away from the city. Environment of this place is very good,very peaceful. Service is bit slow. Taste of the food is good. Try Dal Makhani, it is one of the best Dish here.

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.

The property is nice, but the palace rooms are so empty and feel hounded. We were the only guest there. It was scary in the night to walk through the dark corridors. unfortunately we requested for room service which was a disaster as the food arrived after 1:30 minutes.

We called at the Bal Samand whilst touring Jodhpur and were fortunate to be able to tour the grounds ending up at the restaurant. We can imagine it will be a lovely place to stay given the welcome we were given, the facilities and the lovely lunch we then took. The grounds are wonderfully maintained and it is also possible...
