Not Bad

This is the only chain of restaurant still going on with the same old looks and traditional dress of waiters. The Dosa was decent as is in all its restaurants.

If you are a budget traveller and don't believe in spending much in fancy resturants, Indian Coffee House is indeed the best place to be. They definitely don't serve the best of cheese sandwiches but is definitely worth what you pay.

Just like another Indian Coffee House but the thing that sets it apart from the ones that I have been to is the Dosa and the mutton cutlet they offer. Just one word, really good. A value for Money joint with a a good coffee on offer.

The restaurant serves food at quite low rates, however we neither like the coffee nor the food. We had ordered filter coffee, toast and cutlets. Coffee tasted like hot sweet water, toast had minimal amount of butter and jam and tasted like rubber. The cutlet was average. Overall for me food was below average.

From hot coffee to cold coffee and from dosas to egg omelette... Everything is bad, Coffee tastes like its just water with a little added flavor and dosas stink.

Amazing coffee, awesome snacks and very cheap prices. What else anyone wants. I always have breakfast at least once when I visit there.

Been to Indian Coffee House in past as well but yesterday's visit was really disheartening. The owners are not maintaining the property well & seems to have compromised with Food Quality as well... Being a Landmark and Heritage Restaurant it should have maintained well. Ordered Masala Dosa and Sandwich but it was not upto the mark. Disappointed.

This guy operates in the same fashion as it used to 10 years back.... The service standard and below average and looks a bit dingy.... Better avoid if on a family vacation

This is the old world charm, always packed with tourists and locals. Perfect place to have coffee and chat around and if you are lucky to have the window seats, will not feel like getting up.

A place to enjoy like Indian coffee house was at CP, New Delhi( to old timers). Basically in the heart of Mall road , Shimla, one can relax and eat snacks on low budget. For Shimalites, to have a cup of coffee with pakora piece to have gup-sup on latest of Himachal politics.
