The service was a bit slow, but understandable due to Friday evening crowds.. our food came reasonably on time and very tasty. the owner Sushant came in and chatted a... read more

I work in the restaurant too... So when a guest come we welcome them or atleast make them feel that we pleased to have them. They didn't seem to be please that we came in their restaurant, they were too busy watching television. My wife ordered lime soda and the waiter said they don't have lime soda, so I asked... More

Dear Guest, We are surprised with this review, as the description given does not match the standard of our food. We would like to tell here that we have been running this restaurant for last 20 years. Cupcake sized roti is an art we are yet to learn as no roti can be made as a size of cupcakes, we... More

I decided to try Taste of India on a nice Sunday afternoon in mid-November, walking 15-minutes up the steep TIPA Road from the Main Square in McLeod Ganj. When I finally arrived, low and behold the door was locked (2:45 pm), the TV on, and the windows looking like they had not been cleaned in years. I had doubts as... More

Dear Mr. Critic, It is rather surprising to see that you had a shallow visit which did not give us the opportunity to serve you what we are good at. The door you tried to open is our restaurant reception as the restaurant is on the first floor. More or less, this review is about a door which did not... More

This is a nice little eating place about 1 km walk from the city center. The real beauty is in the ambience among lots of plants and flowers. You can sit outside and enjoy the view while eating their excellent cuisines. Their Matar Aloo needs a special mention and is a must try. I'll definitely come back again!

We went after a trek back from Triund, as we had heard about the non-veg here. It took a while to get menu cards. When we asked for chicken dish, a man from inside shouted that today meat isn't available as the market is closed. We then asked for Eggs, another voice came from inside in hindi which roughly translates... More

The first impression of the place is not good there is hardly any seating and lots of cow webs around but once the food comes you will forget everything else. I have eaten once there and once got a take away and both times the food was tooooooo good. The chef takes about 40mins to cook your order but it... More
