Have been coming here for years and really feel i'm back in McLeod when i've had my first thupka and coffee at Mandala. It's perhaps a little small and not the cosiest spot in town, but it makes up for any shortcomings with friendly service, dependable cooking and best of all in my book, the interesting people you can meet...

Well I live close enough to make a weekend trip to Dharamsala every now or then. This is one of the places I never get bored of. The food is good, the tables in the open let you bask in the glory of McLeod whether. Last time we had a Thupka which was consistent with its standards over the years.... More

While at McLeodganj we hung out a lot at this cafe. The place has a good view & the food is quite cheap. Coffee, green tea and ginger lemon honey tea was good. The chocolate walnut cake was also good but they burnt it while warming it for us. The cafe is a good place to hangout as it is... More

the coffee with other beverages are pretty good. the food option not really. very oily and made in a very desi way. but has a good al fresco feel to it due to good outside seating space.
