Food is mediocre and not worth 30Km additional drive. Sirohi is not en route Udaipur and is a detour. Can be avoided from your itinerary.

By 20:30hours we finished our dinner and started back to Udaipur. We reached our hotel by 23:00 hours. I was so tired that I just jumped on to the bed and slept away.
