Best Restaurants in Jodhpur: Savor the Royal Experience at the City’s Finest Dining Destinations

Whenever I talk about Jodhpur to my friends, I remember roaming the local streets at 1 am when no one was around, just wind rushing near my ears at 7 degrees at night in December. It was dead silent and then the beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder. The next morning, I thought of roaming like a local to experience the reality of Jodhpur when it comes to food.

Well, I have learned it a hard that sometimes you just don’t need an itinerary. What you need is to ask some locals who are way enough vocal to recommend you the best out of all the options because they want their city to stand out the best. My all-time saviors are the AUTO-RICKSHAW people, just grab one and start exploring the city from the streets to monuments to the food because they know it all and of course everyone over the internet knows where to roam like a tourist but no one understands what experience once should get from the city while hogging on the food which represents the city.

Here I’m coming to save your brainstorming for hours over the internet and give you a curated list of BEST EXPERIENCE in JODHPUR

  • Indique By Pal Haveli Jodhpur, Located in the heart of the city near Ghantaghar, this heritage property boasts a stunning appearance. Originally an ancient estate, it has been transformed into a luxurious boutique hotel featuring a restaurant with breathtaking views of Mehrangarh Fort. Guests can enjoy a truly unique dining experience with candlelit tables under the moonlight on the rooftop, complete with a lake view. Offering authentic North Indian cuisine and a selection of alcoholic beverages, the menu includes dishes such as whiskey sour, Hara bhara kebab, chicken lababdar, and kadai paneer accompanied by laccha paratha and cheese garlic naan. The exceptional flavors of the food linger long after the meal has ended. With a total bill of approximately 3000 INR, including taxes, this place comes highly recommended. (this place goes for waiting more than an hour, book tables in advance)
  • On the Rocks Jodhpur, As Jodhpur’s oldest standalone restaurant, this establishment offers a choice of five distinct settings, including indoor and outdoor dining, a bar, and options for Indian or Continental cuisine. Highly recommended by local residents and situated near Circuit House, this expansive eatery allows guests to enjoy their meal beneath neem trees, illuminated by candlelight. Despite a 40-minute wait, the experience proved to be worth it, winning over even initially hesitant family members. Opting for the Indian section, we savored dishes such as lemon chicken soup, banjara chicken tikka, veg ajwaini kebabs, chapatis, and moong dal ka halwa. While the mutton roganjosh was less appealing, the overall meal was delectable, with a total bill of around 3000 INR, including taxes.

  • Gypsy Restaurant Jodhpur, Highly recommended by locals, who insist, “Waha zaroor hokar ana,” this popular dining spot is not to be missed. Despite a 25-minute wait for lunch, the casual atmosphere and rows of tables reminiscent of Haldiram’s or Bikaner Wala should not be underestimated. Renowned for its Thali offerings, both Rajasthani and North Indian, we decided to sample both to discover the hype.The North Indian Thali included curd, rice, dal makhani, paneer masala, gobi masala, two parathas, pakoda, gulab jamun, salad, and papad – truly delightful! Next came the Rajasthani Thali, featuring a mix of panch dal (Rajasthani style), bati, gate ki sabji, lahsun ki chutney, mirchi salad, and ladoo churma. To fully immerse ourselves in the experience, we followed the saying, “When in Rome, do as the Romans do.” To enjoy the dal bati churma authentically, crush the bati on the plate, pour some dal over it, mix in some lahsun chutney, and then savor each bite using your fingers, allowing the flavors of Rajasthan to truly shine.
