It has captured the true spirit of Rajasthan, miles away from the buzzing city life, the picturesque mud and thatch dwellings offer the perfect blend of ethnicity and modern amenities.  A mesmerizing collage of Rajasthani cuisines, traditional games and entertainment, the place has an outdoor seating setup as well as an air conditioned inside seating arrangement. Serving the conventional thali consisting of excellent daal baati choorma, khichdi and mouth watering malpuas, everything with generous amounts of ghee (butter), they push the whole concept of culture in its true form, a little over the edge. A major tourist spot at Jaipur, this is a must visit for all who want to experience a mini Rajasthan in a jiffy yet completely. It even has an amusement park named Pink Pearl Fun City as well as a Punjabi village themed restaurant – Chokha Punjab, adjoining the amusement park.
