We had lunch at Himalayan cafe, food is average, nothing special but cost effective. Do try their steam momos, it is one of their specials.

The place felt quite average in terms of ambience and food. The only highlight is the great view of Leh Palace

Excellent food and service. Perfect foor Ladakhi or Tibetan options - more limited variety wnen it comes to other Indian dishes. The presentation as well as the freshness of the food is exemplary. .

We did not find the food very good. It was just edible. The service was good and prices did not match the standard

Nice place in the main center of the city. Food is good, good portions, average prices. We ate here a couple of times and both times were ok. Service a bit slow but it was like that everywhere in Ladakh, just relax and enjoy the view or the waiting. Average clean for Ladakh standard. Recommended

Atmosphere is average but the service, friendliness and excellent quality of food for a very moderate price makes for a high quality experience. They do also serve various meats in a variety of dishes which is not as common in this area as may be expected.

Thank John B
