A TASTE OF HOME
The stately Rajwadu estate, resplendent with lamp-lit walkways, rippling streams and stone idols, is designed to transport the diner into a Rajastani haveli for a homemade meal. The theme of splendour extends to entertainment as well as the food. There is a puppet show, a live potter, a magic show and even a classical Rajasthani dance performance every evening, completing the Rajasthani village experience. It is no wonder that the venue is a popular choice for weddings and parties. The restaurant serves authentic Rajasthani and Gujarati cuisine as a vegetarian thali.
Work up an appetite before you go there as the servers continuously refill your empty bowls with food made from the owner’s family recipes. The menu is extensive and the food is delicious, particularly delectable are the Farsan offerings of samosas, dhoklas and hot jalebis. For an a la carte alternative, restaurant Madhurya, situated within Rajwadu, offers Gujarati, Rajasthani, Punjabi and Chinese dishes.
