The food was delicious and the owners were incredible. This is a perfect place to relax and enjoy some delicious food and a great chat in Jaisalmer. The owners are two of the best people I met while traveling in India.

I have never been treated so disgracefully in a restaurant as I was in 8 July. After breakfast I went to use the bathroom, and was told I could not use toilet paper, so I didn't but I used some tissue to blow my nose...More
