“Mediocre”
Reviewed 4 September 2013

Well it was India, and out side. The view of the fort and people watching was worth it. The fly's was horrible and massive. They had WiFi, but consent power outages, made it unworkable. I had tomato soup and scrambled eggs. Average at best. But, it really was cheap.
Watched 38 people take a leak across the street by the side of the building. I was #40

“They call this a restaurant? Run!”
Reviewed 12 April 2013

This place only had seven of us there so they weren't exactly busy. A very surly waiter had to be encouraged to come to our table.He was more interested in trying to pick up two young female backpackers. He actually spent most of the time sitting at their table! The only other person "on duty" was a very young teenage who tried so hard to be helpful but was so very inexperienced. We waited over two hours for our food and when it arrived we wished we hadn't bothered. It truly was bad... Cold, greasy, undercooked, lacking the any flavours that make Indian food really fabulous and yes they actually used tomato sauce. At the end of the meal Romeo suddenly appeared to present our bill and was sickeningly subservient, no doubt expecting his tip! What a hoot! Whoever cooks here, whoever owns this place you have no business opening your doors.

“Gross!!!!”
Reviewed 3 January 2013

Stay away. This place was dirty, disgusting and the food was horrible. Wifi didn't work either...seriously disgusting. I never ate at such a filthy restaurant in my life. Wait. Scratch that. We didn't eat our food (two pizzas) because nothing was cooked! It was literally nan with ketchup and unmelted cheese with a few tomatoes thrown on top. Completely inedible. View of the fort was nice...and the people seemed pleasant enough. Pity. Could be a great place.

“horrible food and lousy service”
Reviewed 3 January 2013

we went up for lunch to the blue sky since 0ur guide recommended it highly and the view as well as location seemed excellent.It is an open air joint bang opposite the main palace complex and and within walking distance of all the sights of Orchha.
The menu promised much as it seemed to offer almost every possible cuisine and after browsing it we settled for a sweet corn soup and some spring rolls.
these arrived after an interminable wait during which there was often no one available to remind and we would often wait for a waiter to be visible and pounce on him to remind him of the order.
When it did turn up the sweet corn soup had sugar added to it and when we asked why it was so we were told that we had asked for "sweet" corn soup and sugar was need to make it sweet.
the spring rolls too turned out to be dripping in oil which choked to throat and had a stuffing of cabbage in soya sauce which tasted like no other we had ever eaten.
We sent back both items and made off to eat at the Orchha resort with the most unpleasant feeling we had ever had after a meal out.
Avoid this eating place at all costs.the best bet would be eat at the restaurants attached to the resort you are staying in or at sheesh mahal restaurant inside the palace complex.
