Makarana Mohalla, Near Fort, Behind Clock Tower, Gulab Sagar, Jodhpur, India, 342001

Pure vegetarian restaurant mainly serves Indian dishes (curries, vegetables, etc.) but also Chinese and western food. Staff will help you find out which dishes are vegan and in many cases are willing to omit cream and ghee and other dairy products where they would usually use it. Has a rooftop terrace with a view of the fort. Open Mon-Sun 8:00am-11:00pm.

Wonderful view! - Edit

Beautiful „pure veg“ restaurant in the old town of Jodhpur. From the rooftop terrace you have a terrific view of Mehrangarh Fort. The restaurant is in an old building with an awesome ambience. The courtyard is an oasis in dusty Jodhpur.

The food we had (Indian curries with rice) was good and I had the impression that they have good hygiene standards. The restaurant is a place that caters for tourists, so it isn’t too spicy (but Indians may not like it for exactly that reason). They don’t sell any alcohol.

If you’re a vegan, make sure to tell them exactly what you don’t eat, and repeat that with every order. This is important whereever you decide to eat in northern India. India may be a very good place to eat for vegetarians, for vegans it is rather difficult. Many restaurants are “pure veg” – this means it is vegetarian and they don’t use any eggs, but in northern India they usually use dairy aplenty. The concept of veganism is almost unknown, and most Hindus don’t understand it, because they would never kill a cow and cows are holy to them partly because in their opinion cows nourish humans with their milk… Many dishes that you wouldn’t suspect to contain dairy are made non-vegan by sprinkling cheese on top of it, mixing paneer-cheese in it, especially bread may often contain ghee or curd. I used the V-cards in Hindi (http://www.maxlearning.net/HEALth/V-Cards.pdf) in order to avoid that.

Pros: wonderful view from the roof top, great ambience, good food
