Atmosphere is average but the service, friendliness and excellent quality of food for a very moderate price makes for a high quality experience. They do also serve various meats in a variety of dishes which is not as common in this area as may be expected.

If you want to enjoy the local taste, its the right place. Just dont compare it with any other food as it has its own taste, specially made of the weather like in leh / ladakh.

I think some of the reviews are a bit old as clearly the slowness has dissipated and the staff that served us over several trips were enthusiastic and quick to respond. They were flexible when we asked for specific changes to the menu without question. Prices were highly competitive for the class of food served and the food was well... More

The only reason we walked in here is because someone from the group spotted it and the rest of us were too tired and hungry to argue. Well, in retrospect, we were glad that we did walk in here. The place looked rather ordinary and the people waiting on us didn't do much to bolster our confidence in the potential... More
