When the weather looked breezy on a weekday, we left the office early for a long fun drive on the Jaipur-Delhi highway. Just a kilometre or two’s drive from Amity University and NIMS institute, we spotted a Sky-Waltz Restaurant cafe on 228 KM Stone Delhi Jaipur Highway in half an hour’s drive from the city and its hustle-bustle.
The white picket fence and the freshly-trimmed greens catch the eye and make for a very cosy entrance. Overlooking the Aravali Hills, the seating outside looks nothing short of a refreshment and romance therapy!
As we open the doors to India’s Only Aviation themed cafe, and seat ourselves, what we see is a very eccentric ambiance that celebrates the art of flying machines. Our table had momento models of the Wright brothers aircraft, while the designs of cushions and cutlery speaks of aero-science and its history. White wrought-iron cycle placed inside with beautiful flowers in its basket just balanced the aero-act. From a hot-air balloon basket in one corner, hanger lights, sturdy metal chains to hold the furniture in place to the chance of dining in raised mid-air swing style, everything about the ambiance of the cafe spells exclusivity.
We ordered for a spinach, sundried tomato, corn, olives & feta pizza, fish & chips for our non-veg loving colleagues, and Wok-fried wild mushrooms & sesame chilli sauce. The drinks included coffee, and vanilla & caramel milkshake. Even their open-kitchen we noticed had an interesting interior with those uniquely hanging onions and garlic ! While going around the place, we noticed that our pizzas were being baked in an earthen oven in a very nouveau style, and the results confirmed just that! Good-food, rather great food makes the whole trip worthwhile; the fish served with the tartar sauce was succulent. The chef comes with some covetable culinary experience and the continental food is surely their USP.
Come with your friends, colleagues, partner or just anybody, you will love the place. They have lots of interesting theme-based stuff to look around and a board games corner too. If it’s a little late in the evening, the beautifully lit candles and the pure air surrounding the place create heavenly bliss.
All-in-all, it is a thumb-up from us to the Sky Waltz Aviation cafe. With the arriving monsoons, Jaipur surely has found an intimate getaway with the right scientific appeal for the ones interested. The really intriguing part about the place is that the owners plan to make seasonal introductions in the cafe’s ambiance and menu to keep the visitors hooked.
