Palki Khanna, located inside the City Palace complex in Udaipur, gets its name from the word “palki” or palanquins, which were often used during the Maharajas time. This casual café offers an eclectic mix of foods, with an emphasis on western café food. The food at Palki Khanna was one of the better meals we had outside of the offerings of 5 star hotels in the vicinity.
Natraj is a very popular local dinning spot in Udaipur. The food is all vegetarian – they don’t even serve eggs here.
Natraj is known for its thali meals that offer a filling meal at a great price. This is probably the best thing to eat here.
The place is very bare bones – there is no décor to speak of and the service is really sloppy. The food was all right. I tried their Daal Bhati (a traditional Rajasthani dish), which was pretty good. We tried their Chinese and it was pretty awful. I would stick to the Indian food.
All in all – I really didn’t think Natraj was worth the trek out there. There is no culinary experience that awaits you to make the effort to eat here. There are plenty of places that are more centrally located that offer a better experience.
Ambrai restaurant is one of the more popular local restaurants in Udaipur. It is all about location, location, location which makes this a real tourist hotspot. Situated on the banks of Lake Pichola, dinning here provides a spectacular view of both the City Palace and the Lake Palace.
