Worth a walk!!

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... read 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

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

This place serves the best food in Mcleodganj. We visited Mcleodganj in August, and had read a lot of good reviews about this place. So, decided to try it once, but we loved the food so much that we ended up having 3-4 meals at this place in our 3 days stay in Mcleodganj. The place is clean and well... More

Food served here is excellent but take a lot of time for your order to be served. We ordered non vegetarian items and it took them approximately 45 mins to prepare. When served, we forgot about the waiting time because the food was excellent.

Thanks, There is no Compromise in Quality of food, our main focus is freshness and hygienic food. Therefore unlike all the other restaurants all the raw meat and Chicken is stored in Refrigerator which takes 10-15 min. to come on room temperature before cooking and another 20-25 min for cooking all bar-b-que or Tandoori items. Thank God your wait was... More
