I had a short trip to Rajasthan on work. The last day of the tour was in Udaipur where I got a few hours to roam around. When traversing the narrow lanes of the old city towards the City Palace, I came across a number of road signs and name plates promising “Roof Top Restaurant”

I think the issue is more ground rooted – the narrow lanes, crunched rooms, etc mean for the ambling tourist, a roof top restaurant is a space for stretching the legs out under the open sky.

Given the gora tourists penchant for a piece of sun, it seems a good business ploy. The question of course is where is the roof?

If you have the money, of course, you can try the restaurant inside the Palace. Called Palki Khana (where the Palanquins used to be parked), it is run by the HRH Group of Hotels.
