Location is everything, they say. Dome sits right in the midst of the city’s beating heart with a 360-degree view of the busiest road and the iconic Raj Mandir. Not only the place has a view few can afford, but it also has plenty of space at various levels. There’s indoor seating, a panoramic pavilion, a private terrace, and a gazebo-style area. The best vantage point is from the Jharokha, where a romantic private dinner won’t let you forget that you are in Jaipur.
Sonu Khandelwal is proud to be running a restaurant at such a place. “It works both ways; while the tourists like the idea of standing on our terrace and watching the daily hullabaloo happening right beneath them, the locals feel happy that they are at the core of the city while they can peacefully sip their drink and enjoy a meal,” she says.
What to order: Melon sangria with mushroom kurkure and lasagna shots are great to begin with. Try daal makhani for mains and finish your meal with some kesar badaam kulfi.

This restaurant serves Pan Asian vegetarian fare. “We want the people of Jaipur to experience world-class Asian food without apprehensions and compromising on taste,” says Ujjwal Jain, who co-owns Silk Route, along with Ronak Maheshwari. Located on MI road, this place is convenient for tourists and shoppers. Unlike most Asian restaurants, the place doesn’t have loud red interiors. Instead, it has muted, soft black and green interiors.
What to order: The khow suey has become an instant hit among locals. Also, try the mango and avocado sushi, lavender kombucha, and darsaan with coconut and jaggery ice cream.
