Garden Restaurant

One of the top experiences at Ajit Bhawan is to have an al fresco dinner at the garden restaurant, while talented folk singers and dancers put on a wonderful show. Under a canopy of green trees and surrounded by atmospheric yellow lights, enjoy delicacies from various cuisines.

Dhani Restaurant

Journey into the past and present of local cuisine at The Dhani, a restaurant at Ajit Bhawan. You will notice its rustic charm as you step into the space, with its mud walls, thatched roofs, and intricately designed interiors. The idea behind Dhani is to immerse guests in an authentic local experience, and share a glimpse of how people in Rajasthan live and eat. Many of these recipes have been passed down through the generations. The experience is elevated by a musician playing the stringed instrument called the ravanhatt a. We prepare traditional, freshly-cooked meals with the choicest local ingredients. Don’t leave without trying a Rajasthani thali.

J’- Bar

J Bar is where you can enjoy a drink the old school way. It is a haven for discerning connoisseurs, serving a wide range of premium spirits, rare vintage and signature cocktails. The decor is classic—polished wooden fl ooring, upholstered bar stools and couches, and tasteful panels. All of this is elevated by a touch of whimsy: multicoloured lampshades and knick-knacks hanging from the ceiling. Our professional bartenders will be at hand to guide you if you need it. So sit back, relax and enjoy a tipple.
