We enjoyed several meals during our stay at the palace, and were very impressed by the cuisine, from its vast breakfast feasts to its intimate, romantic and delicious dinners.

The restaurant is very nice the food is good , but, A/C way too high, and the al fresco dinning is more attracting...

Don't see this as just a restaurant. Enjoy the regality of the room, the streaming in sunlight, royal portraits, cheerful and tastefully done interiors and the best of royal cuisine of Jodhpur - mirroring the King's kitchen. Fantastic place. 4 points for the food per se, 5 overall.

Went there last night , everything was perfect. Staff were very polite and attentive, the restaurant itself was very grand. Food was exceptional especially the Laal maans which is lamb simmered with onion, mathania chillies and smokey ragastani spices. Will be back again.

Delicious food, top-notch service. I ordered Indian food based upon the recommendation of the waiter. Super tasty, wines were a perfect match with our dishes as well. Everything was like I expected, romantic atmosphere. Only the temperature was pretty cold, more like freezing! Bring a jacket!

Risala is one of the 2 restaurants in Umaid Bhawan. It specializes in Indian food. You also get rajasthani thaali which we had. The quality of the food was amazing. Though we have had rajasthani thaali before in different places but we werent prepared for what we were served. The service is exemplary and the experience was surreal.
