“Perfect KB Café in Jaisalmer”
Daniel C – Paris – France – August 2019
beautiful place with amazing view of the haveli and fort, and food at great price. we actually came twice, once for dinner where we had delicious thali, one for a drink after visiting the fort. Vicky is a very nice person of great advice

“Top location, friendly service, delicious food”
What a location, right in the heart of town! I had booked a triple room for me and my 2 teenage nieces but manager Vicky said it would be a bit cramped and instead gave us 2 lovely adjoining rooms at no extra cost. We felt like we had our own wing and the rooms had big window seats facing the gorgeous facade of Patwon Haveli opposite. We ate on the rooftop restaurant, rugged up in many layers of clothing on our 2 chilly winter mornings. The view of the fort is spectacular and the food is delicious. We became addicted to aloo jeera! KB Lodge is relaxed and comfy and we were able to walk up to the fort. We all loved it.
“Don’t miss it!”
Robertjoosth – Bussum – Netherlands – February 2019
Tourist trap-restaurants all over in Jaisalmer, unfortunately. So we were so lucky to find KB Café and Restaurant behind a modest sign on a modest square on walking distance (10 min) or 80 rupee by tuctuc from the touristcrowded Fort.
On the rooftopterrace Vicky and his crew offered a perfect team to serve us genuine indian food. With great patience he explained all the dishes, and adviced us in fluent english on spice etc.
In our four days-stay we had two great dinners and one superb lunch at KB; like Vicky said: ‘of course it is nice for us to have guests in our restaurant, but it is an honour for us when they return the next days’. The honour was well deserved!
Jow261 – Petworth – UK – february 2019
My wife and I were recommended KB Cafe and were not disappointed. I ordered the Jaiselmer Thali which was the best I’ve eaten in India – the spinach and cheese is absolutely delicious and the chapatis just kept coming. My wife ordered the vegetable biryani which was equally good. Having eaten the previous day in our hotel the bill was almost equivalent to the hotel’s service charge!
“K. B. Lodge just fantastic”
We stayed at the sister property to the hotel Killa Bhawan, called K. B. Lodge, outside the fort, opposite the Patwa Haveli. Same gracious hosts operate both. The nice thing about the K.B. Lodge is that it has an excellent rooftop restaurant. It is also very centrally located. The room was very comfortable, clean. But it is really the hosts who make this property special. They went out of their way to help arrange things for us, and they did it with such warmth and friendliness. It was one of our best hotel stays ever. I would highly recommend the lodge. We also had a tea at the hotel Killa Bhawan–lovely setting.
“Best meal we’ve had in Jaisalmer”
Sandrapx321 – Canberra – Australia
This restaurant overlooks the Museum / Haveli and the Fort. It is very clean, beautifully decorated and the owner and staff provide great service. The Ker Sangri (desert bean dish) and okra dishes were fantastic! Highly recommended.
“Jaisalmer’s best value hotel”
Jamesjarman- London – December 2018
Nothing but good things to say about this place. Our room was great value – large, clean and tastefully decorated. Vicky and his team were welcoming and always waiting with cold mineral water without us having to ask. They helped book a great camel safari, one of the highlights of our trip, didn’t try to push anything on us but gave some great recommendations for Jaisalmer food and activities. The place has real character and breakfast on the terrace was lovely. We were served free tea all day and even invited to the main killer bhawan hotel for free tea right by the fort in spectacular surroundings. Wish all our hotels in Rajasthan were like this one.
“Lovely Place with Great Food”
Andreinklv – Paris – December 2018
The KB roof top and the restaurant are very nice. The view, the food and the atmosphere are perfect. We 100% recommend to take time to have a lunch, dinner or more at KB !
Furthermore, the fort is very close and the lake as well.
Ian-and-Sue21 – spilsby – UK – December 2018
Lovely food, try the Thali….it’s the best in Jaisalmer. We ate here in the evening and they made us feel very welcome. Give them a try, it’s definitely worth it.
“Friendly excellent value place to stay in central down town Jaisalmer”
Gavin M – November 2018
My wife & I loved our stay at KB Lodge. The extended family owners take real care of you – including when you drop into the lovely sister hotel Killa Bhawan located up in the Fort. The food is excellent – and very reasonably priced (much better quality, and much less expensive than the food at the Trio Restaurant). The family’s shop – located a few yards away from KB Lodge is full of well-designed clothes and accessories – again lovely and reasonably-priced.
Room Tip: Best not to get a room that overlooks the square – which can get a little noisy.
“Central and Stylish”
Jet35840311456 – November 2018
We had one night at this comfortable convenient guest house. Room was small but nicely decorated,and showed an awareness of what westerners want…good linen, bedside lighting, a little bit of style even in the budget to mid rate. Great host and staff and a good location for exploring central Jaisalmer.
“One of the best THALI”
Mihir0410 – India – November 2018
Nice place to try Rajasthani food. We tried there Rajasthani Thali and it was by far the best Rajasthani food we had.
The KHADI Was awesome.
Must to visit when visiting the Havelis in Jaisalmer
“GREAT VIEW, tasty food, friendly staff, best Indian coffee”
Bradpetaluma – California – USA – November 2018
You can’t miss here. They have it all. Hidden gem across from Patwa Havali taxi lot. Worst part is the climb up 4 flights of stairs. The food is tasty and reasonable. The staff is friendly and helpful with your food requests. They may be a bit slow, but the view and food is worth the delay.
Definitely a must stop spot.
“Great place to stay in Jaisalmer”
Shanny G – 7th October 2018
Highly highly recommended , perfect place to stay in J’aislamer, great location- one minute from patwa haveli and 10 minute walk from the fort. The room was very stylish, clean and big , the beds were extremely comfortable. The hotel has an amazing roof top with view to the fort. A special romantic place to relax drink and eat. The staff are very friendly , and assist very quickly with every thing we needed. The hotel offers a delicious complimentary breakfast as well as tea and coffee , and are very flexible with the hours. it felt as if the hotels main and genuine purpose is to really let the guests feel as comfortable and happy as possible and are willing to do everything possible to make that happen.
“good food with some great views”
Lyon K – 2nd August 2018
The food was served fresh and was very delicious comparing to all the restaurants we’ve been before here.
And including that view , that was a great experience !!
“Gems of Jaisalmer”
Nanda Samvida – Mumbai – India – April 2017
the cafe is beautiful! with a fabulous view facing both the Patwa Haveli and the Jaisalmer Fort!
we had one of the best thalis of my life here. My partner and I came for some work, and it felt more like a romantic getaway! the rooms in KB Lodge have beautiful robes for the guests! and the people are so warm and friendly, they make you feel a part of their family!
A MUST VISIT! (have the thali for sure! and order a cheese and tomato omlette! )
“Fantastic rooftop café !”
Cazwaz2016 – London – March 2017
Lovely rooftop cafe and a welcome place to escape from the heat and hubbub of the street below. We had both types of thalis, which were excellent value. The owner is very friendly and the toilet was clean, which is a rare thing! Would definitely recommend it.
“KB Café very nice”
Laurie C – New York – March 2017
We spied this rooftop restaurant from the Patwa Haveli and visited for lunch. Nice views and friendly service. Very helpful staff. We opted for non-Indian cuisine and both the omelet and grilled cheese sandwich were excellent. Fantastic French fries.
“Nice little stop”
Holmesawa….Regina – Canada – March 2017
We stopped here for a snack and drink. The roof top seating area was nice with a view of the fort and museum across the street.we had veg pizza, tomato pasta,Chai tea. Very resonably priced and tasty. Service was good
“A perfect stop for a fine lunch and great view”
Swaen – Ostend – Belgium January 2017
Thanks to our guide Prakash, we found this nice place to have our meal, during our day in Jaisalmer which was wonderful. This terrace offers a great view in the middle of the center and has also very fine food. We had the Thali and were very happy with it. Service and atmosphere were perfect too, certainly a place to recommend !
““Nice rooftop resto”
Cecilehelene – Columbia, SC – USA – Stayed January 2017
Beautiful views, nicely furnished and excellent service. This restaurant is on the rooftop of a restored haveli and offers a range of light meals in pleasant surroundings, including cushioned benches overlooking the city and fort. The food was fresh and well prepared and the coffee decent. The manager is pleasant and friendly. It’s a place to bring a book and stay out of the fray for a while. Also, there is a boutique next door run by the family which stocks high quality clothing, scarves and jewellery much of it designed by Italian and French designers and made locally to good standards. Definitely worth a visit.
Vivek K – January 2017
Saw this place while visiting pattwon ki haveli. It turned out to be quite epic and we ended up staying way too longer. Their terrace is awesome and you can actually get a clear view of the fort from the top most terrace. Staff is great. They also had some great rooms to offer. Cheers to the team.
“If you are looking for home and homely people”
Sandeep Chaudhary – Bombay – India – December 2016
We were lucky to spent two nights at KB Lodge. Bharat and Bhanu, brothers and owners are exceptionally warm and hospitable. I can say that they are good friends now and we will remain in touch. NIcely done rooms, that are comfortable, cozy. Do not miss the incredible view and the the ethnic Jaisalmer and Marwari thali at KB Cafe. By far the best meal I had in my ten day trip across Rajasthan. If you like homestays, you can’t find a better place. We’r definitely coming back to KB Lodge and I hope they keep it affordable and available. Thank you Bharat and Bhanu!
Room Tip: Go with an open mind and you will find whatever you are looking for.
“Best Café !”
Trip Advisor member – December 2016
If you want to enjoy good food with excellent view. This place is a must visit. Try marwari thali if you want to have good Rajasthani food – Ker sangri, gatte ki sabji, mutter paneer, n much more with excellent hospitality!
“Has it all: great food, view, services !”
John M – December 2016
Came here on a recommendation from a tour guide. Had chai and thalis, and the food was incredible. We’re guessing they use some extra butter in their recipes. The rooftop has a great view of both the fort and the Havelis. The bottled waste was cold. Service was great. Got help with directions and finding a rickshaw after our meal.
“Beautiful spot for a light meal”
Bert C. – London – November 2016
We stopped here for a drink, came back for lunch and will go back tomorrow for breakfast. This is a lovely terrace overlooking the havelis and a short walk from the fort entrance. Located on a very pretty square and in one of the more picturesque parts of Jaiselmer, this is well worth seeking out for a. It of down time during your trip. Really lovely spot with a continental vibe.
“Wonderful vegetarian food……. ”
Lavanya K November 2016
We caught sight of this quaint restaurant while on the rooftop of an amazing attraction called Patwon Haveli, and decided to stop by for tea. Very good ginger tea with honey and penne pesto pasta. My husband had a Rajasthani thali that he loved.
The wonderful cafe owners also gave us great travel advice (to visit the Gadisar lake to observe a local festival) and even showed us around their beautifully designed lodge, bookstore and artisan shop with locally made products. Absolutely lovely. Happy to have stumbled across this place.
Steve S – November 2016 Los Angeles – USA
Be sure to try the pan fried tomato and spring onion.
Very nice rooftop cafe with views of the fort and Patwa Haveli.
“beautiful view & Clean Kitchen !”
937aleks – Simferopol – November 2016
Цены приемлемые, примерно такие же, как и во всех кафе для иностранных туристов. Чистота на кухне, хозяин без проблем проводит, покажет, это очень важный фактор в индии. Обслуживание хорошее, еда вкусная. Периодически хозяин может подойти, спросить, все ли понравилось, пообщаться, дать советы. Даже зарядили нам телефон 🙂
