Ask anyone which is the best place to eat, everyone points you to Dragon. Rightly so, Dragon is the best place to dine at Tawang. The quantity of food is really good. The prices are reasonable too. You can order the food to be readied at a specific time and it will be ready in a hotbox. Also it delivers... More

The only place in Tawang which serves a wholesome portion of their local dish Churpi. It made our of Yak' Milk and Cheese and is an acquired taste. The food here is generally good.

Twang doesn't have a lot of places to eat so this is one of the best. The service indeed is slow as they prepare everything freshly but the taste is so good it's actually worth the wait. Prices are also reasonable. The best part was the way they serve it in nice crockery and cutlery. Loved the place.

We reached there and asked him what can be prepared quickly (because we had read on Tripadvisor that Indian food can take upto an hour to preare!!) He said Chinese, and we ordered Chicken momos, Veg Chowmein and Egg Fried Rice. HUGE quantities, and very reasonable. These 3 things cost around 350 rupees!! And the order came in <15 minutes!!...

Food is ok. Do try the butter tea or Brit tea. Momos are ok, not extraordinary. Thukpa- well you can try it, but its pretty bland; your cook is assamese not tibetan. Dont dare try any Yak cheese dishes, you would throw up!!! Better to play safe & order regular Indian dishes. During Buddhist festivals only vegetarian fare is available.

A couple of cups of coffee (more milk, hardly any coffee) took half an hour to arrive, and the dinner took another 1 hour after that. The food was good (but not outstanding), but waiting that long made us lose our appetite. Pre-ordering your food and then turning up much later seems like a good option.

The food out here is decent and nothing to write home about but the service was good and the warm liquor going down your throat on a cold afternoon really warms you up

A small restaurant in the main market, which can be easily missed out if you don't keep your eyes open is the best place to have authentic Tibetian cuisine. The place is small and cozy with a very warm and hospitable staff. The food is excellent and so is the service. The main attraction is the staff has complete knowledge... More
