I'm still dreaming about their hashbrowns and pancakes: the breakfast was truly delicious and their hot milk with honey is perfect to heat up in cold Darjeeling.

I stopped here for breakfast, having a cooked English style breakfast with the biggest wedges of brown toast ever washed down with a huge pot of tea. After been torn between the cooked breakfast and French toast I returned the following day to sample the French toast.

I read reviews on TripAdvisor and thought to give it a try. It was a wonderful experience at the restaurant. Service was good and food was really worth every dime spent. One thing which I personally liked was it wasn't too much crowded. We've had the best moments having breakfast here with special acknowledgement to Sonam and Puran her husband... More

Sonam' s Kitchen is kind of Pivot-place for Bengal & Sikkim HimalaYa travellers.

The restaurant is a little gem, but the owners, Sonam and her husband Puran, are big gems, honest, humble, open-hearted, and serving freshly made, simple and copious breakfasts (and main means by arrangement). By far my favourite restaurant in Darjeeling (and I go there every year)
