Stunning Fort Views & Laal Maas FTW: When In Jaisalmer, Chill At This Hippie Rooftop Restaurant


    Authentic Rajasthani food, views of the fort and the most cordial staff ever – Jaisalmer’s Restaurant Romany is getting everything right. Also, if you have a soft corner for hippie spots and happy places, this is one eatery that should rank high on your Jaisalmer checklist.

    Cameras At The Ready

    Good food makes us happy, and when it is accompanied by a stellar view, is there really anything better? On a recent trip to Jaisalmer, we accidentally discovered one such restaurant and let’s just say, we left the place very happy {and with a lot of pictures}. Restaurant Romany is an eatery near Sunset Point that can be spotted even from a distance, because of its stunning rooftop with a colourful canopy and patchwork curtains. From this restaurant’s rooftop, one can view the massive Jaisalmer fort and the entire town. If the entire Jaisalmer city doesn’t seem like a good enough background for all your pictures, the dessert mural with camels, tribal art and wise words will be a very close second.

    Nice To Meat You

    Coming to the food itself, we ordered laal maas, chicken gravy and plain rotis that made for one hearty and happy meal. While some of us liked the spicy red laal maas with falling-off-the-bone meat, the coconut-y, mildly spicy chicken curry had the vote of the other half. Also, don’t forget to wash it all down with a glass of their refreshing lassi.

    So, We’re Saying...

    Restaurant Romany is one eatery that you should definitely drop by when you want a wholesome, Rajasthani meal {they’ve even got White Mutton and Palak Mutton}. Also, check out the Arya Haveli and this home stay inside the fort, for accommodation options.
