No good food , tomato sauce is just plain view also gets killed by the near hotel, huge difference in hospitality for indians and foreigners . Gujarati's are not treated well

We were staying in Bunkyard so we didn't have far to travel. This restaurant is a really good place to safely enjoy non veg dishes from the BBQ. There are alot of different options but I liked the tandoori chicken (260) and peanut masala salad...More

My friend and I had a very nice experience while dining in Charcoal. Their food is local but quite sophisticated – their daal and eggplant plates are delicious. Views from their rooftop are lovely and the vibe is quite low key. Ideal for family or...More

The food is a waste- tasteless . Services are extremely slow . The behaviour of the staff is rude . Overall a bad bet . The only thing you get here is view .... for which udaipur has loads of options

Healthy advice not to visit charcoal. It was a terrible experience for me and my friends. I am local of udaipur and thought to celebrate there, but was a disappointing choice in terms of food, service , behaviour and arrangement. In addition to late service,...More

Hey, if you are not used to being a vegetarian 24-7, this is where you go to get your fix. Anything off of the skewers or from the tandoor oven is good enough to bring a carnivore back to their sweet spot. Great view and...More

Rooftop view is fantastic at night with great grilled meat and service ! Slightly more expensive than the average meal but worth it ! Highly recommended

We picked Charcoal after reading about it in Lonely Planet. We knew it was going to be pricier than your usual backpacker eatery but we wanted to do something a little special on our last night with the group we were with at the time....More

Went here with a big group of people. Food came out super quick considering our group. Staff very professional. Food on expensive side for India but well worth it! Paneer was to die for! Beautiful views of the lake!

Charcoal by Carlsson is the only barbecue rooftop in Udaipur and as our name suggest we specialize on food cooked over coal. We have a great selection of veg and non-veg, from deliciously mild to excitingly spicy from both or barbecue and our traditional tandoor. We are also excited to offer you authentic Mexican cuisine with real traditional corn tortillas, creative fusion and traditional Rajasthani food. Charcoal by Carlsson was started by the Swedish Chef Carlsson who is trained in kitchens in Mexico to bring you authentic and real flavours.
