My experience was not good here, After asking for water it came after 10 mins. I ordered paneer butter masala and tawa rotis, sabzi had so much oil, the amount was very very less, rotis were 20% burnt. So from my side thumbs down.

Located on the top floor in a building just outside the fort, Monica's offers a great spot for a bit of lunch whilst doing a bit of sight seeing. The food is very good and is supported by a good drinks menu. Recommended.

This is a nice place if you want to have the option to eat non-Indian food and get a break from spicy food. I had the vegetarian sizzler and a really good israeli salat, which we ordered twice.
