Lonely Planet review

Tucked away in the backstreets (but well signposted) near Chandpol, Savage Garden does a winning line in soups, chicken and homemade pasta dishes with assorted sauces, though portions aren’t huge. There are some Middle Eastern influences too – try the three meze: babaganoush, hummus and tabouli. The setting is atmospheric, in a 250-year-old haveli with indigo walls and bowls of flowers, and tables in alcoves or a pleasant courtyard. The bar is slick, with red, white and sparkling Indian wines from Nasik, Maharashtra.
