Pool Lounge at Neel Kamal at the Taj Lake Palace , Udaipur, India

Neel Kamal at the Taj Lake Palace

Even if you’ve had Indian fare for days, this elegant, white tablecloth restaurant at the Taj Lake Palace hotel still wows and delights, and that’s saying something. Dine in the intimate main room, which faces an interior courtyard with lily pond, or have the team arrange a special private dinner on the Lake Palace’s Mewar Terrace to overlook the water. From dishes such as wood-smoked morels in a saffron-cashew gravy and rose petal-infused kulfi (Indian ice cream) to the mango chutney or fragrant basmati rice that accompanies them, everything seems precisely prepared. Absolutely save room for dessert. This restaurant is only open to guests of the Taj Lake Palace.

Editors' Picks

Palki Khana

This restaurant attracts lots of tired tourists because it sits right at the entrance and exit of the City Palace. However, don’t avoid it because of that. The Indian food is surprisingly good and sitting at the outside tables under umbrellas with views of the palace is lovely. For those craving western dishes, there are pizzas and sandwiches available, but the platter of Indian dishes is delicious. During dinner, you may be required to have tickets for the sound and light show.
