Good Indian dishes. Since it is inside the palace grounds it is a bit pricey as it caters to tourists. Many tourists ordered western food. I had the spicy lamb curry and it was very good. Why would you order western food in India? The portion size was a bit small as was the naan but the tastes made up... More

This cafe is only accessible for the City Palace visitors, which makes it a quiet and cozy hide away. It's very pricy, tried cappuccino. No alternative for cow milk. Quite indifferent staff - not enthusiastic to serve, rather to look away. Not very friendly.

Had lunch here with my family. The menu looks sumptuous but the taste wasn't as expected. It is an expensive restaurant but the service is absolutely terrible. They don't even carry mouth freshener. The best part of this place were the restrooms. Absolutely clean.

Our tour group ate lunch here. After the magnificent palace, this place was a bummer. About the best thing one could say is that even the bathrooms were clean. The chicken salad sandwiches were meager with almost no dressing to moisten, the French fries, which most Indians love, were not hot nor tasty.

We were a group of 17 people. Even though the restaurant was pretty crowded they accommodated us in different areas, to which we had no objection. This was towards the end of my India trip and I wanted to eat non-Indian food. My pasta was amazing and others in the group who ordered polenta, fish and even an Indian dish... More

We stopped here with our tour group and had a simple lunch. The tomato soup was tasty. I then had vegetarian sandwich. It was white bead with crust cut off tomato and a white cheese. All very basic. The French fries tasted as if they came from freezer bag.

This small cafe smacks of the old British style and has the food to match. Don't expect Indian food. I had a chicken salad sandwich which had a scant amount of chicken with almost no dressing. It was on white bread with the crust cut off- and there were about 12 French fries- could you spare me some food?

Cappuccino more expensive than Europe and you don't even get a small biscuit or whatever with it!! Not even paper napkin. Honestly!

Not a great place to visit although the new renovation has done good to the property.The food is quite average and the prices are very high.
