“Disappointing”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 January 2014 via mobile

Unsure as to what all the hype is about. The food was very bland, service was slow and there wasn't much of an atmosphere. I was under the impression this was a great place to hang out and play games: The games consisted of Jenna and connect four and the minute we ate we left. All-in-all a disappointing experience.

“Delicious food - great prices”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 January 2014

Based on spending 4 days in Udaipur, this cozy little joint has some of best, authentic Rajasthani food for some of the best prices.
Please note: we like our food prepared spicy, for local tastes - not mild or "continental" for foreigner tastes (When in India - eat Indian)
The Baigan Archari (probably spelled that wrong) - is a fascinating little eggplant dish. A tongue tingling spicy and pickly curry. As a huge curry fan, it's a taste very different from the regular masalas, and veg curries - and was superbly made.
The Kale Papad Si Subzi (again probably butchered that spelling-working off memory here) - It's the first item on the veg menu. Easily the most unique dish I've had in Rajasthan. It's a curried papdum dish. Very tasty, and a great addition (at a mere 60 INR) to anything else you order.
The chicken masala, veg biryani and paneer tikka were all tasty as well (we came here a few times).
The ambiance is cozy, when full, its buzzing with energy. It's well decorated, and the best part - the handful of games of the windowsill (jenga and connect 4 being my fave). A great way to spend some time with a friend or meet a stranger.

“Tasty food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 January 2014

Lotus provides an amazing range of eateries....

The butter chicken tasted simply out of the world.
Must visit in case, you are a non veg freak....

Popped in here for dinner based on lonely planet recommendation. Relaxed atmosphere and very clean. Food and beer was cheap and tasty..I recommend you check out the specials board.

Waiter was very friendly too. Head on down.
