We went there to have dinner and to see the dance performance which is at 8 pm. Nobody told us that the show was cancelled, the food was very ordinary, and when we received the bill...surprise! We were charged of taxes! but nowhere in the menu there was written that prices were given without taxes!

- Food quality is very mediocre as it do not contain any authentic Rajasthani taste. Just like any other restaurant. - Ambience is also very normal. There was no live music as claimed by the Dhani. - Staff/Management is also very non-sensitive towards customers or we can say inhospitable. They Sells bottled food/beverages at more than printed MRP. Give aggressive... More

There are two places to dine- outside in the garden with candle light and inside with baithak style seating. We sat inside because it was too cold. Tried Dal-Bati-Churma, Khichdi, Shahi paneer with nan. All were great. Highlight was the Dal bati churma. Tip: Go with empty stomach and order one dish at a time because Rajasthani food is heavy.

I went to Desert Boy's Dhani earlier as I spotted a fun Indian Birthday party going on. Ambiance is comfortable with the garden and old tree, but that is as far as it goes. Cost for a thali was an inflated 200 rupees, and the curries were probably the worst I have had in India. Naan was at least cooked... More

Desert Boys Dhani is a a veg restaurant in the main Gadisar Road in Jaisalmer. It serves only typical veg items which are easy to make. Nothing fascinating to mention about. Disappointing after having such good food at our hotel. Pros: 1. Location: Situated in a small lane from the main road - so easily accessible 2. Ambiance: Seating is... More

The food was very ordinary, so was the service. The place was too dimly lit. The overall ambience, though was worth the visit.

People have told us that the food there used to be better, but as this was our first time we have no comparison to make. The food was good however, certainly nothing to complain about. The real draw is the ambiance - this place is magical. Set in a small garden with tables surrounding a raised stage at the front.... More

interior and location is good. cultural programme is nice in between. but staff is not much friendly. we ordered kair-saangri, which we had, was tasteless (not proper rajasthani). asking them, they replied that some other party is going on here, so whatever we had prepared(even without garlic), serving you. this attitude was not expected (even they didnt have pos machine(...
