Rajasthan is one such state of India that is purely crowned with the royalty that Bharat cherished couple of centuries back. Still immensely rich with heritage and regal beauty, Rajasthan has a lot more to offer than just landscapes of desert and folklores. The heart of Rajasthan, Jaipur, is a colourful city which is still popularly addressed as the ‘Pink City’ and has so much to offer; when it comes to hospitality.

The name might seem a little confusing, but wait till you actually get there. Nestled amidst the land of Amer Palace, this romantic fine-dining restaurant is sure to charm anyone who visits it in the evening. Try out their Rajasthani specialty – Murgh Ka Sula or Mushroom Galouti Kebab for small portions. If you have a big appetite to curb, then try out their ‘Thaal – E – Amber’ which is served on a traditional silver thaali. Tip: Don’t forget to watch the light & sound show of Amer, while you’re at it.

A paradise for kebab lovers, that’s how I am going to define this fine-dining restaurant. A true Mughalai delight, non-vegetarian lovers can expect an array of mutton curries and tandoori items served with gourmet naan breads. Can vouch by their version of Bukhara, Barrah Kabab and Dal Peshawri. The ambience is contemporary with earthy interiors to make the dining experience relaxed and intimate.
Steam by Taj Rambagh Palace

No, the name doesn’t suggest steamed delicacies, but depicts more about its royal train themed décor that makes it the number one fine-dining place for families and couples. With pure essence of Rajasthani décor and old-school royalty, the ambience makes the dining experience far more memorable. Try out their exclusive range of Italian pizzas and Lebanese finger-pick sliders while you admire the beauty of the place.
Zarin by Fairmont Jaipur

Zarin is the first Indo-Persian restaurant in India. If that doesn’t tickle your appetite, then let me add on the sophisticated fine-dining ambience amidst fountains and luxurious cutlery; complete with hard-core Persian delicacies to munch on. The menu offers gourmet like Mahi Zameen Doz, Khoresh Fesenjan, Nadru Ki Gular, Paneer Changezi, Subz Irani and Atta Raan. For dessert, they serve Baklava, dry fruits and fresh fruits to preserve the authenticity of Persian culture.
