Best at the best!

This family run cafe is the best place to dine in the town. Great atmosphere and the best food we had ever in the town. They have daily special menu that's worth single penny. There is something that'd probably catch your fancy for sure is that smile & welcome from the moment you step inside.

Lungta is one of my favorite restaurants in McLeod Ganj. The special sets are huge and very reasonably priced. Tuesdays and Fridays are sushi nights and the place is usually packed. There is an extensive collection of (mostly) Japanese books and a cute, somewhat friendly cat that's usually napping on one of the chairs. It's a real treat for vegetarians... More

Great little place with the fastest service I've ever seen and the prices are so low! My boyfriend really like the house curry. The sushi wasn't bad, but I did not like the miso. The fried rice was good. Their little lemon tartlets were also okay, kind of like key lime pies. The green tea was nice, usually I never... More

Ridiculously cheap vegetarian Japanese restaurant next to my hotel. I stopped by for an herbal tea to wait for my friend, but decided to try the Potato Croquettes with Salad - 80 Rupees ($1.30). They were great! The tea was 20 rupees (32 cents), bringing the total to a whopping 100 rupees ($1.62), likely the best value in McLeod Ganj... More

I went to Lungta for lunch. Food is very good, I had the Set Menu. On some days you can taste also the Sushi. I liked this place except for the fact that a cat was mumbling around the tables.. Also there is no real place where you can wash your hands before having food.. The staff is not very... More

I came here during my first month in India. Almost two months later I'm still dreaming of their food! The set menus are great value and you get a huge amount of food. We also ordered okonomiyaki whichwas very good. It's worth coming for the setting too. Lung Ta is in a beautiful building and the decor inside makes it... More

Such tasty food that's always fresh, served piping hot and vegetarian. I'm a throughbred meateater and for this restaurant i'd go vegetarian in a heartbeat for life. Value for money also and a great warm cozy setting.

I'm a local and I go there whenever I feel like a tasty healthy meal. The food is excellent and very inexpensive and just to top it all off the profits go to charity.

The restaurant is a non-profit, aimed at helping the refugees. The staff is very nice, the place is very comfortable, and you sure get a sense of being somewhere else, a rest from Indian cuisine. They have day menus which are big and tasty. The desserts are very good too. If you have time have a late lunch and at... More
