Wow!!! This place is amazing. I have been travelling for a couple of months and needed some rest when I arrived in Pushkar. And since arriving, I have spent every day and night in this place. Sheru, the lovely, amazing, and very special owner of...Laughing Buddah, has really looked out for me and after me. Letting me rest and cooking his amazing food for me whenever I was hungry. The menu caters to vegan and vegetarian, and everything on the menu is delicious My favourites are the big buddah breakfast and coconut curry. This place is very special. You get a really good, chilled vibe as soon as you walk in. It's a very quirky, quaint place with a beautiful ambience. He has a very interesting ayurvedic, food for medicine book for customers to read, which is really interesting and many other interesting books, for when you just want to chill. The most lovely thing of all is that Sheru donates 50% of his profit to help educate the poor children!!! Sheru is a very special man. The food is out of this world. It is made with so much love and careful preparation, and so, so tasty. The balcony view to the market is a great people watching spot. Laughing Buddah is a must visit if you are looking for good and wholesome vegan/vegetarian food and also to contribute to a very worthy cause, whilst eating lovely food!!! Will miss you Sheru and Laughing Buddah very, very much. But will be back soon. Lots and lots of love Namaste Amanda ❤️ 🙏More

Best place in Pushkar! Excellent fresh made vegan food prepared with love , that you can eat on the balcony with old market view. I recommend the banana cake with home made peanut butter, simply delicious. You have definitely to try the vegan chai.

Hands down the best meal we’ve had in Pushkar, or maybe even India. We like fresh vegetables, sourced locally cooked to order. Seriously if you’re in Pushkar ear here. Very healthy and tasty. Wet little oil used. Even the coconut milk is made from scratch....We shared three of the main courses between us and for the first time ate every scrap, no because there wasn’t enough but because it was so good. The owner, Sheru cooks everything himself. He even makes everything including jam, pickles, chapatis and peanut butter. He can tell you where everything came from. Like it says on trip advisor- it’s small and intimate but what is lacking in space is way more than made up for on charm and satisfaction. Very reasonably priced. 3 mains with sides and a freshly made juice each came in under 1000 rupees (less than £10) I could waffle on more but there’s no need- if you can just go.More

We added this cafe to our must try list when we walked past and saw the outdoor balcony overlooking the streets of Pushkar. We went back to get a refreshment later in the day and one of my friends also wanted some food. We were...greeted by a little girl and shown the menu. I wish I hadn’t already eaten as there were so many tempting vegan options to choose from. I decided to get a coconut milk iced coffee and it was perfect to sip on while watching the busy streets of Pushkar below us. We sat in silence watching the monkeys, cows and vendors going about their days, so relaxing. The owner told us that all the profits are donated to a children’s charity and the cafe operates on a volunteering basis. I absolutely loved my experience in the cafe and left with a huge grin ear to ear. This is one that I will definitely be suggesting to any of my friends or other travellers visiting Pushkar.More

There is a spot inside with a table on the floor that can fit about 6. And then only 3 small tables on the deck.
