A great choice of starter, mains and sweet courses. The chefs and staff are only too pleased too give you a tour of the buffet when you are ready to eat. There is an a-la-carte menu available but the buffet offered so much choice that we didn't even look at it. Food was superb. Service was... read more

There are wide variety of dishes offered here in the Buffet and more than that they also offer you a separate Menu to order which is also included and is treated as a part of the Buffet. All the varieties of food are of unmatched quality and you will not find this class of food anywhere else in Shimla.

The food was unbelievable and well cooked. Amazing chef comes out and introduces himself to you. The waiters make you feel like Royalty and get you whatever you need as soon as possible. The view from the table is looking upon the mountains and you can trust the food to be healthy.

Great Place to eat. I think it is by far the best place to eat in Shimla if you want something different. The chef Rajkumar came to my table and made a specialty salad that was wonderful. I am always thankful and impressed with the fresh ingredients that are used.
