Great restaurant, good atmosphere. The owner is very kind, he even delivered a freshly baked banana bread in the morning before we had to leave our hostel. Great guy and delicious bread!

I had the fruit salad with curd and muesli. It was delicious but a bit confusing cause in the menu was written it comes with homemade bread. After asking where the bread was they said its just for certain dishes! Why is it then mentioned in top of the breakfast menu? I also asked 3x for cinnamon but never got... More

Chill-out place above pushkar main street. Not great as a restaurant but very good to sit down, have some tea and relax. (+) Nice veggie food. (+) Nice lookout on the street, without sitting inside it. (+) Met other nice tourists there. (-) Service was slow, but we got some complementary cake.

I can't sing my praises enough for this gorgeous little place. The food was simply excellent and the coffee was good too. We went back every day we were there. It's very cosy and there is a small balcony where you can watch the marvels of Pushkar unravel from up high. The two people we saw running the place were... More

We sat outside on the balcony which is great as you can watch the world go by on the streets below. We ordered 2 Indian dishes including a veggie kofta which was... More

We had dinner here on the balcony (a great spot to look down on the street below) Food was delicious and service could not be faulted. We paid 350 for two mains, drinks and dessert. The great thing about this place is they donate 50% of profits to local children in nearby village for food, education and shelter. If you... More

We went here after reading the reviews. The food didn't blow us away but it was something rather different than we are used to. Owner was very friendly and welcoming, I recommend you try for yourself especially if you are a vegetarian - this could be right up your street. If you don't want to eat grab a drink and... More

The food served here was fresh, clean and delicious, including home baked bread, with options that can be served either vegetarian or vegan. Very well priced. Great spot overlooking the bazaar to watch the world go by. I didn't enquire about it in the cafe, but I see from their website 50 percent of the income of the cafe goes... More
