If you need a break from the bustle of the streets this cafe is ideal: located in an enclosed flower garden it's a little oasis of calm. Food tasty and very good masala chai.

Beautifully situated in a rose garden away from the hustle and bustle, the food is good and service timely and attentive - did I really just write that about an Indian restaurant? The owner seems like a genuine guy, although the prices are somewhat excessive by general Indian standards. I had Rogan Josh, Jeera Rice, water and Lime Soda for... More

Good Chinese food. Serene place, cool breeze under the Chinars. You would love the ambience. Not a crowded place so you can enjoy with your family. Paid parking is just opposite the road and would charge you ₹20 for the day.

This one of its kind cafe has a unique & lovely ambience right in the heart of Srinagar. Open air tables nestled between flower beds on sides and a huge chinar tree on one side gives it pleasant look, though we only ordered tea with few snacks which was reasonably ok the experience of visiting this place was really awesome...

While food is average rates are very high. Place is good to sit...it's better to go to near by restaurant which offers better quality.

The waiter was so rude..we asked him to explain some of the dishes on the menu and he responded saying we are asking him 500 questions..he claimed that 'this is kashmir' - extremely unwelcoming...and when we said you are so rude we are not ordering anything and got up to leave, he was...
