    Jaisal Treat: Excellent food. Excellent service

    by PrachiS Written Nov 18, 2012

    After the horrible experience at The Trio, Jaisalmer (which I have advised travellers never to visit), i went with reluctance to the Jaisal Treat last night. However my experience was very different. We were greeted with a smile and were given best table near a window giving a glimpse of the market. Though we had a choice to sit on the terrace, my son was scared of the dark and hence we sat in the AC room.

    Since this is my last day in Jaisalmer today i,e November 19, 2012, i will definitely miss this restuarant. I wish i could have 2-3 more meals at this place. This place is slightly expensive though than the regular joints but less expensive than The Trio.

    We ordered for a chicken noodle soup, a jungli paratha and chicken biryani. The food was excellent, more better than many places in Mumbai. Chicken was tender and not hard, soup was well prepared. The soup was so good that after biryani, we ordered for one more soup. The rice in the biryani was well flavored and it complimented the chicken very well.

    Favorite Dish: Chicken noodle soup. it was so good that we had another bowl after dinner.
    Chicken biryani. it was subtly flavored.

    The Trio Jaisalmer: Horrible experience at The Trio. Waste of money

    by PrachiS Written Nov 17, 2012

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I went to this horrible restaurant named The Trio, Mandir Palace. (TIN no.08372500136) with my wife and my 4 year old son today, i.e. November 17, 2012. This is a real dis-gusting place to ever be in your life.

    I decided on this place after reading the reviews on various sites. This place is just horrible and is only meant for foreigners. If you are an Indian, be prepared to be insulted by waiters and the restaurant staff. Only foreigners command respect and service with a smile. One reason is that most of the foreigners follow the advice of local guides who bring these travelers to The Trio for meal. In return these guides get a free meal with booze and also commission on the bill value. This commission may range from 10 to 20 % depending on the bill value.

    THE WAITER ARE ARROGANT AND FULL OF ATTITUDE.

    The following is the reason why we hate this place so much.
    1) The whole restaurant was vacant with only 20 % seats occupied. Despite this the waiter told us to sit in a corner place with no fan. We were told that the other seats are reserved. Most of these seats were vacant even when we finished our food. THE BEST SEATS ARE RESERVED FOR FOREIGNERS WHO VISIT WITH GUIDES.
    2) The waiter was totally uninterested in taking our orders and despite repeated re-quests did not allow us to change our seats to a more comfortable one. This waiter did not give his name but in the bill it was written as “Waiter no. 5”. He was short, dark and with moustaches. Apparently, we overheard another waiter telling him that we should have been told to be seated at another corner.
    3) There was a welcome to foreigner with a smile and we were getting ignored even while taking our orders. The order was being taken by this waiter no. 5 even without looking at us or even nodding. The same waiter was very co-operative with foreigners who came with guides. Even the manager was staring at us as if we were aliens in this restaurant.
    4) No table cloth on table while others were getting personal service by the same waiter with placing table cloths.
    5) The food came after a wait of 45 minutes. We ordered for an egg fried rice and garlic chicken. Even basic Chinese food takes such a long time here. Both of them tasted horrible. There were three times the normal levels of salt in the dishes and there was absolutely no hint of garlic in the garlic chicken, the chicken was as hard as rock. The gravy was useless and the rice was filled with lumps of salt and monosodium glutamate commonly known in India as Ajinomoto.
    6) We threw half of the food and I am worried of my son who ate 3-4 pieces of the chicken. I did not even bother to tell this to the manager as I know that he would have ignore me once again.
    7) We paid for the food BUT LOOKING AT THE HORRENDOUS SERVICE NO TIPS WERE PAID.

    PLEASE DO NOT EVER GO TO THIS PLACE.

    Favorite Dish: horrible food. no favourite dish. may be the bottle of water was good.

    THE BHANG SHOP: TRY A BHANG LASSI

    by davidjo Written Mar 30, 2012

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    THE BHANG SHOP

    No trip to Jaisalmer is complete without a visit to the Bhang shop where you can sample a bhang lassi (yoghurt), Bhang Thandai (almond milk). Bhang is prepared from marijuana leaves and is legal to drink from government registered shops (where the amount is controlled) and other shops too. Sometimes it is mentioned in the menu as special lassi. Don't drink too many, you can suffer! One Bhang shop is located just outside the main entrance to the fort.

    Trio Restuarant: Good Food, Music & Ambiance

    by lynnehamman Updated Oct 25, 2011

    The tent-roofed Trio restuarant was a real surpise. We ate all our meals there, and it was always crowded. It has indoor eating area area, and an outdoor one, which was more popular. Table s had bright red tablecloths, and seating was comfortable. Service is quick, but relaxed, and the menu , although mainly vegetarian, was quite varied. All the food was delicious.
    At night, the place really comes alive...........live Rajasthani Folk music, with singers, play until well after midnight. Another great feature is the fact that although it gets busy, there is not any pressure to hurry ones meal. The restuarant is in a good area, just on Gandhi Chowk.

    Favorite Dish: Vegetarian Thali

    So many people and sources have given Trio exultant reviews and a some for Desert Boy too. Although it might not be fair to compare but if I had to choose one, it would be Desert Boy!

    Both have excellent views of the fort; Trio from the roof, Desert Boy from its garden. What makes Desert Boy stand out is the prime reason for a restaurant in the first place: the food. The dishes at Trio were a tad subdued I suppose, whereas the preparation at Boy felt more.. daring, and true to the cuisine.

    By the way, I'm not sure how Saffron's (another new popular place a stone's throw from Trio) main course is but if there Honey Pancakes are anything to go by, it's certainly worth a try. It's cute how it's in the dessert section of the menu.

    Favorite Dish: Mushroom Paneer at Desert Boy Dhani!

    Too many flies in this place for our liking, the only reason we went here is beacause it came as complimentary with our Room in Hotel Milan. However we didn't repeat the mistake twice. Poor service, good food, too many flies!

    We headed here on New Years Eve, they had arranged for live Rajasthani music whic was a nice touch. The owner himself waited on us as we arrived early to an empty floor. He was extremely polite and served a sumptuous meal apart from which he sourced some White wine and some sweet from outside his restaurant to ensure we had a memorable time! A good view of some typical Rajasthan Markets was an added bonus!

    Favorite Dish: Macaroni & cheese as well as veg pakoras

    A flavour of Tibet, at Jaisalmer

    by satchmo1963 Updated Dec 10, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Once you are done with your walkaround inside Jaisalmer Fort, return to the main courtyard where you commenced. Sprinkled around the edges of this square are a host of eateries. Some of them offer open air seats for you to watch the world go by as you munch your edibles.
    One such joint, at this square, proclaims its sympathies for the `Free Tibet' cause, which you will find written on the wall just outside its entrance. Work your way up the narrow, steep, stoned stairs, and plonk yourself at a vantage to watch the crowd.

    Favorite Dish: This eatery serves piping hot steamed momos (vegetarian and chicken). Ten pieces of such momos, served with an appropriately red hot dip, set me back by INR 70. Wash it down with a bottle of Coke. A satisfying experience awaits......

    Saffron Restaurant: Briliant for the taste buds

    by satchmo1963 Written Dec 8, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    View of the fort from Saffron Restaurant

    Colourful awnings, perfect lighting and friendly staff at Saffron welcome you. The restaurant is part of Nachana Haveli, but non-residents at the Haveli are welcome to savour the fare at Saffron. The rooftop location provides a stunning view of Jaisalmer Fort. I recommend this place especially for dinner, when the view of an illuminated fort can transport you instantly to magic-land.

    Talented children from the locality form a colourful, jivey folk band to keep you entertained with their rustic, rhythmic music set in the evenings. Try determining how they play the khartaal!

    Favorite Dish: Laal Maans (i.e. red meat) with tandoori roti is a must for the non-vegetarians. The chicken curry with steamed rice is also quite decent.

    If you happen to saunter in on any morning, have a shot at their honey pancakes. Quite sublime!

  • 8th of July Restaurant Jaisalmer: Nice view but unhygienic and bad food

    by situatedness Written Apr 13, 2008

    The restaurant is filthy and depressing. The owner advertises that s/he is an Australian 'permanent resident' but s/he certainly wasn't working for the sanitation department. The fare is grim, too, a rancid lassi for breakfast, yummie! The view is nice, over the square, but I wouldn't recommend anything more than a cup of well-boiled tea.

    Natraj Restaurant: Fast, delicious int'l dishes

    by WaRPer Updated Apr 1, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Natraj Restaurant

    This is one of the best meals we had on the entire trip. Natraj Restaurant located outside Jaisalmer Fort. Just about 300 Meters away from the fort’s entrance, close to Salim Singhki Haveli (there’s another Natraj but inside the fort – that one’s a fake.) Natraj serves Indian and Chinese dishes, the fav one is fried-chicken. It’s not that cheap comparing to Indian standard, but the food equality is extremely pleasing.

    Favorite Dish: We had chicken biryani, veg fried-rice, veg chowmien and mushroom masala with garlic naan and all turned out to be really good.
