Not too busy when we went, as it was Diwali, so families could have been at home with family.
We opted for the 1000 Rupees multi-cuisine meal deal; dining-room setting and plenty to eat. It was tasty and everything looked clean and hygienic. We were advised to go for this meal as the other, the Rajastani option at 600 rupees could have been too spicy for us.
Walking around the attractive resort, we watched traditional dancing by the attractive, petite women in their costumes; balancing pots on their heads and dancing on broken glass as a finale (!).
There were traditional games of skittles, archery and airgun shooting, like a fair - some are free with the entry/meal price, but others you pay a small price for. There is a puppet show and a magician, also a palmist.
We experienced an elephant ride, a camel ride and a ride on a cart drawn by oxen. We also had a head massage - amazing - and henna painting on our hands.too!
It's set in 15 acres with plenty to do and see. The bazaar stalls had plenty of reasonably-priced items for sale - good souvenirs!
We liked it so much we went back the following night and had the Rajistani set meal, sitting on cushions and eating with the locals, fabulous experience and not too spicy for us!. I recommend go for that deal!
