Easily the best restaurant in Darjeeling for me. The menu consists of variety of vegetarian options ranging from continental to italian to south indian. A small cozy affair, its a wonderful place to have delicious veg food. The service is fast too. A must visit in the Mall Road.

Worst service I've ever experienced on my travels! I'm a 25 year old male so couldn't really give a darn about good/bad service in general but this place was awful! They didn't have the correct change for me and paid me off in lollies, without telling me; I questioned and was told that it's not their responsibility to have the... More

Had only french fries which were dipped in OIL!! BAD.. Thought of ordering something else, but given the condition of fries.. This place was a BIG NO on our list.

It is a vegetarian restaurant at Darjeeling's main street. Food was quite good, they had western style sandwiches, southern Indian dosa and things like that. Nothing fancy or spectacular yet quite nice. Problem was the staff that were frosty and annoying. They never smiled or said hello and seemed indifferent at best (and annoyed at worst!) at my presence there,... More

The momos I ate from here were the best I've ever had. There is an excellent variety of food here, from Chinese dishes like chow mein to western dishes like pizza or burgers, though all of it is vegetarian, as is usual in Darjeeling. All the food is delicious and very cheap, and the service is punctual and excellent.

Tea restaurant looks good from outside, even the name is fancy. But as soon as we entered inside, it was quite surprising. This is very much like a typical C-grade Indian restaurant. Restaurant is not clean at all. Quite ill-maintained furniture. Above all, rude staffs. We ordered for a plate momos here. But after bearing the filthy atmosphere for a... More

One of the very few exclusive veg hotels.Though it says south Indian stuff is available, it is not available in evenings. Morning available but they need still training on how to prepare Vadas. Very very compact setup. Hardly 10 people can sit. Coffee is very good and if you manage to get a window seat it is pleasant to watch... More
