We were really hungry as we had just returned after a long journey. We stepped inside as we hadn't tried this place out and it looked nice. We realized that it was a veg restaurant but still decided to eat. We ordered a veg burger, spicy pizza, nachos and chole bhature. The pizza was the best item they served. It... More

Small restaurant with Indian and some western food. Owned by same company as next door, same name, pharmacy. The opportunities for jokes abound, but the food here is good, reasonably priced, and tables at the back have a good view of town and the mountain.

We got momos and pizza and both were below average. We got 5 momos for 70 rupees and they were tiny and barely had any vegetables. The pizza was a little weird and the sauce tasted like ketchup. We ordered a soda water and a fresh lime soda and the waiter came over with two lime sodas and no soda... More

Nice quaint place to have reasonably good vegetarian fare. their combos are good but the items gets delivered in piece meal fashion. the hygiene takes a beating as the day progresses. south indian food is okay but the accompaniments need improvement

My recent visit was actually inspired by my last visit in November 2002. Then I stayed for 5 nights in Darjeeling and daily breakfast or brunch used to be @ Frank Ross. After 12 years, back to Darjeeling and was delighted to find it still there. Since the place was tried and tested, Now FS has a more varied menu... More

Every time we go to Darjeeling we end up in Frank Ross Cafe at least once, often after giving up in despair of ever getting a table at Glenary's. What most people don't realise is that you can get just as good views from the FRC back room as you can from the much more popular cafe a few doors... More

We had snacks here two or three times before starting the trek for the day. The food was good, and the service was quick. We found the place to be clean, and tidy. Proximity to Chowrasta is definitely a plus, since we found ourselves to pass through the area almost daily. We definitely recommend the nachos and the tacos, which... More

Food is freshly prepared, ambiance is good. The place looks tiny from outside but it's really well planned. The menu is complete with lot of options.

Frank ross cafe is decent to grab a quick snack or cold coffee but tastes are pretty average. Location and customer priority is what will keep this place in good business.
