Very Good

Nice place in the main center of the city. Food is good, good portions, average prices. We ate here a couple of times and both times were ok. Service a bit slow but it was like that everywhere in Ladakh, just relax and enjoy the view or the waiting. Average clean for Ladakh standard. Recommended

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.

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.
