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.

We stopped for lunch on a sightseeing day around Jaisalmer. We were able to grab one of the few tables with a Fort view. Food was very good at a reasonable price. Would go again.

(Only vegetarian food) Very bad food quality. Not even a touch of Rajasthani taste in fact totally tasteless food. These guys can't even provide a simple/good yellow daal forget about other items. Curd was also very sour. There was nothing special about the ambience as well. Not at all recommended for vegetarian lunch.

Had a worst experience at Monica's. Their food quality and service was very poor. The food had no taste at all. Moreover, they were charging service tax on mineral bottle as well.

We were looking for some good non veg food in close proximity to the jaisalmer fort, Monica's restaurant came for our rescue. It serves the best traditional laal maas. The meat from the tandoor was succulent, we tried both chicken and mutton and it was simply mouth watering.

Went here for laal mas (mutton curry) and it was so delicious!! Spiciness was great too if you enjoy Indian spice, which we do. Friendly staff and manager also.

We tried the chicken tandoori and chicken tikka. Both delicious and very well cooked. Some tables have nice view to the castle.

We ended up at Monicas Restaurant due to it convenient location near the Jaisalmer fort entrance. The food we ordered was a mix of non-veg (chicken tikka masala) and veg (house thali). The meat was undercooked (and possibly stale). The veg options were bland (salt was missing). I won't recommend another visit.

Thank Anand B
