We had dinner here, it's not the nicest of settings, there are many more far nicer places to eat than here, as this was quite a dark rooftop cafe which didn't overlook the lake. However, the food and service was good, and they also served beer.

First of all: this place has a new rooftop terrace which is always positive. We ordered 3 chef's specials and all of them were amazing. It takes a little time to prepare but thats a good sign and worth the wait. Finger licking good. APPROVED by Belgium!

I do recommend this place for a cheap yet yummy Indian lunch or dinner. The mutton was amazing, as well as the cashewnut curry for vegetarians ! Also, the staff is super friendly, which is hard to find sometimes! The rooftop has a pleasant view of the palace.

We only wanted a drink although it was close to dinner time. After saying that, the staff was a bit angry and was swearing.

We reached there after reading reviews and obviously had decent expectations. And we were so very disappointed. We asked for cold coffee and apparently their was some problem in the ice and hence cold coffee was not available. So we thought we ll order some pasta or main course but even that was not available. So finally we had a... More

Like most travellers, Lonely Planet brought us to this rooftop restaurant buried in the heart of Udaipur. The restaurant wasn't very busy but it was clear that it was heavily understaffed - it took around 20 minutes for a waiter to take our order, even though there were only 3 other tables. We ordered four different curries although we were... More

We ate Chicken Tandoori while hanging out in the little chillout area above the kitchen and it was soo delicious! Staff is also very friendly and you can talk easily to other travellers. Definitely recommend this place!

I truly believe that if I had ordered an Indian dish I wouldn't be writing this review. I came here with my friend and we ordered some pasta with tomato and onion sauce (usually a mistake in India, and especially here). We got a portion that filled half the bowl the size of a small cereal bowl. The macaronis were... More

Great menu and amazing food! You can customize the dishes as per your likings. A good place to have continental in India at decent price.
