This is the best restaurant in Leh. After trying most of Leh's eating joints I settled for Penguin. The food is yummy and the sitting arrangements amazing.

A typical Leh restaurant: a little funky, but the food was great. A nice place to sit in the shade with the sound of water during the heat of the day.

try the Tandori trout, the trout is locally farmed so it is very fresh and excellent, nice garden setting!

Nice atmosphere for outdoor eating at night with good music playing while we were there. Service quick despite U.S. Being quite s large group. Food was great especially the Palek Paneer and Lassis. Only negative wax the toilets which were pretty poor by local standards. Otherwise thoroughly recommend.

Lovely little garden restaurant, nice and shaded and cool if the mid day heat is getting to you. Ate here on a number of days - breakfast, lunch and dinner, everything we had tasted great. Definitely worth a visit if you're in Leh.

Thank PenniCrayon
