Awesome Food!

The place is bang in the middle of the market but on the upper floor and there for gives you a good view of the Leh city. Has a cozy decor.

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

Located centrally in the main bazaar, this place offers both good food at reasonable prices and a stunning view of Leh palace. We visited this restaurant twice during our 4-day Leh trip and ordered Butter tea, Kotey (fried momo), Shapale (Tibetan fried meat pie) and Tingmo (Tibetan bread and vegetable soup). While the Shapale was average, the Tingmo was fantastic.... More

Visited this restaurant for Thupka and Momos and thoroughly enjoyed the meal. A neat restaurant with the local flavour. The only thing negative about this place is that it is on the 3rd floor but the food makes up for the effort required to get to the restaurant.
