Umaid Bhawan Palace has 3 parts – Maharaja Residence, Museum and Hotel. This hotel is very famous among the elite, rich, famous and film stars as most of them have their parties and weddings here. The Palace is on top of a hill and hence well protected for security reasons.
The cover charges per couple was Rs.3,000 and prior reservation. This was told to us at the entrance but they did not show anything like that in the bill. The hospitality was princely. As per our request they took us around to show the hotel and they were happy to show us around. When a menu is ordered they served us as per the number of people. My son of 10 years was given complimentary beverage and pastry. He and we were thrilled to see their hospitality.

Very good food though could have done with more local cuisine varities. Service could have been a bit faster as we were with the kids. However, the whole atmosphere was quite good.

We had a lunch and dinner at this restaurant. They arranged a delightful table with flowers and cake for our wedding anniversary during our stay at the Umaid Bhawan Palace hotel. The food was par excellence and the chef went out of his way to create a special dessert for us.

Given that a significant part of our thinking in coming here was to actually get in to see this otherwise heavily restricted hotel, we had not thought too much about the food,other that it would be at least reasonable but in fact we had out best meal to date in India.
As an initial point bear in mind that nibbles accompany your pre dinner drinks,papads before your starters,a sorbet before your mains and chocolates with your coffee. The portion sizes are also generous.
Our highlights were the really brilliant prawn kebabs,lall mass ( mutton/ chilies ) and the " desert beans " with berries.All special, memorable dishes.
In addition to the food, there are the surroundings ; opulence and grandeur on a breathtaking scale.The gentlemans washroom alone is as large as many hotel lobbies. !),
The bill for the two of us,including pre dinner cocktails and 2 beers was around 85000 rupees,a lot of money for India but you have to remember this is one of the most prestigious hotels in the country and most importantly the food quality is superb
