Many different Dosas and lots of vegan options

Nice place with views at the Amber Fort in Jaipur. Their speciality is different styles of Dosas and there are many vegan (and also gluten free) options.

Great Vegan Options and Location

We are walking distance from our hotel and is across from the Amber Palace. The owner is very nice and understood no dairy. I liked the atmosphere of this place and would go again. We order channa and rajma.

Pros: Many vegan options, Owner is friendly and informative

Disappointing reduced options

We were told that the chef wasn’t in and that they could only cook a reduced number of dishes. We ended up with a Chole Bhature which we could have got anywhere for a fraction of the price. The place was clean and air conditioned but lacked any atmosphere

Good food, great location

Perfect place to eat before or after visiting Amer Fort. Good options and also soy milk. We really enjoyed the food, we tried a pesto vegetable cheese sandwich and an Indian breakfast dish with chickpeas which is highly recommended!

Pros: Tasty food, Great location, Nice atmosphere and climate

Cons: Pricey for India , Staff was not super attentive

Amazing Thali and dosa

My partner and I went there for lunch after visiting the Amber palace. We had delicious vegan Rajasthani Thali and masala dosa. The owners were so kind and knew all about veganism. The atmosphere is great as well as the view. Must visit if you're in the area!

Owner served us delicious vegan food

Felt good vibes as soon as we walked into this lovely looking restaurant. We were kindly greeted and shown to our table followed by the owner who approached myself partner and baby daughter. She was nothing but friendly and kind and seemed she took a lot of care and passion in her establishment which I love to see and for her to come out is something I very much appreciated. We explained we were “vegan” and she was very much aware what veganism was. She went through the menu with us and was able to alter a few things to serve us the best and most delicious vegan food she could get us!! We got a vegan thali, vegan toasted sandwich and a vegan friendly pasta dish for our 11 month old baby daughter. Timing was perfect!!! And food was delicious and every single bite was satisfying. Erela nearly ate the whole bowl pasta to herself which she very much enjoyed also! The restaurant is in a prime location just near the Amber fort (short walk) just back on the main road from the walk to the fort! Overall we had an amazing experience and definitely will be back if where ever back in Jaipur! We recommend everyone who passes by the fort to come and have a meal at this fine establishment!!

Pros: Vegan friendly , Vegan thali , Staff very friendly

Vegan friendly good food

This all vegetarian cafe is located just outside the Amber Palace/Amer Fort. The owners and staff understand vegan food and the menu has these options marked. We had the North Indian thali and Rajasthani Thali (both not vegan). The items in the thali were healthier and less spicy compared to their original counterparts. Their menu has both india and international options and a lot of juices and shakes. The cafe has a good ambience and is very clean. The mint infused water was highly refreshing after walking through the forts. I highly recommend this place during your visit to Amer.

Pros: Marked vegan options, Reasonably priced, Good ambience

Cons: Far from city center

Great vegan food!!

After touring Amber Palace my group and I decided to eat at this restaurant directly across from it and it was so good! It was all vegetarian and there were so many vegan options. All the vegan and gf options on the menu had a V or gf next to it so it was perfectly clear what was vegan and what was vegetarian. Definitely recommend this place. The prices were great and food was amazing.

Pros: Excellent food, Good value, Friendly staff

Just right

Lovely decorated bistro, chilled atmosphere. Vegan items clearly marked and staff seem to understand to a point. Just check they don't use butter or cheese in your meal when ordering. We ordered idly and beans on toast. Both perfect for a lunch, and tasty. We had lovely filtered coffee with heated up soy milk. The bistro is clean and the toilet is probably the cleanest in India!

Pros: Vegan options, Friendly staff, Super clean toilet

Cons: View of elephants being ridden ☹️

Great vegan and gluten free options at a reasonable price

The owners of this bistro are so careful and contentious about a varied diet! They ask exactly what you can eat and have soya milk for really good cold coffees. A rarity in India, where most places don't seem to have that many vegan or gluten free options clearly marked.
Kokum has a huge range, but especially delicious were the oats idly, pesto dosa and quinoa uttapam. A healthy inclusive menu meant that we went twice in our two day trip to Jaipur!
It is also a great place to eat and hang out after a morning or afternoon exploring Amer Fort. Right at the based of the elephant gate, its exposed brick and tree trunk tables provide the perfect place to observe the fort while munching away on a feast! Super healthy, delicious and with vegan, vegetarian and gluten free catered for!
It is a little far from the city centre, but its location is perfect for the Fort, especially if you want to walk around a little. Its a 15/20 min walk up the Fort, and less so down.

Pros: Staff friendliness, Delicious vegan food, Great value

Cons: Far from the city centre

Definitely go here.

Right across from the Palace, delicious, reasonably priced (between 150 and 300 INR for most entrees, about 80-120 INR for a drink) and vegan items are clearly marked, many things are cooked without butter. Really clean bathrooms, beautiful view!

Pros: Many vegan options, Right across from the palace entrance, Friendly service, great view

The restaurant is a 2 min walk from the entrance to the Amber Palace (Amber Fort). The restaurant is clean and delicious!! They have classic Indian dishes and fun variations! The prices are good and service was excellent! I would visit again!
