Late hour tea/coffee and snacks.

This is a pretty decent cafe near the mall, that stays open quite late. Ideal for hot drinks and a little snack. Alu Parathas are awesome here. Try that.

Hi all went to darjeeling lately with my mom. In the midst of so much of non vegetarian restaurants, this is a stylish vegetarian restaurant. The pizzas that they offer are mouth watering. Do visit the place if you wanna enjoy vegetarian food with a north eastern stylish ambiance.

You get South Indian here. The bean on toast was good as well as the Chola Bhatura (excuse the spelling).

Not setting any trends. Worst dosas we've eaten in India - cruet was too thin and the sambar was watery. Momos were OK.

After a long days walk, it was a nice place to get the munchies and coffee. The ambiance was good and we stopped in again the very next day.

We tried Pizza and Dosa as they mentioned their speciality but slightly disappointed. But you may may still try as there may not be many options out there. So just enjoy or go at Pizza Hut in opposite.

First flush. For the first time I understood what Darjeeling Tea really is, and why it is in such high demand. We Indians have been corrupted by cooking our tea. The only tea worth drinking is Darjeeling Tea, or at least tea without milk or sugar.

The only reason I say it is average as being from Bangalore I love my spices. Ordered their spicy pizza with extra cheese. A little too bland for my taste. But my friends from North India couldn't stop showering praise for their food. Depends what you like. Vinay Nagaraj

A good cafe with great vegetarian options! And in addition their service is quick and the best is their food tastes really good. I feel bad, that we tried this cafe only towards the end of our trip. Otherwise,I was sure to come back here again. Loved the place, the staff and the food they serve. Though they don't serve... More
