It's a nice lively place, great to meet and chat over coffee/ vegetarian food. The selection is limited but good. The tables are close so not the place if you want quiet and peace, it's nice and bustling at most times.

Geat ambience,studiedly informal. This is on the top of a lovely book store and what makes people feel at home is the simplicity and elegance! The food is lovely, portions just the right and service warm, but intruding.

It's simply a cafe on a terrace overlooking the main road (that's the only part I like about it). Without a complicated menu, one can order a coffee or something to bite. Please don't expect anything more than that even if any of your geek friends speak about it in their imaginary language :p

Came here for the first time with a friend who has been a couple of times before. The cafe is situated in the upstairs section of a bookshop. Clearly popular as we had to wait a little while for a table and when we got one we saw lots of other people come and go - some choosing to wait... More

Cafe Turtle / first knew it as Green Turtle. My first visit to this restaurant occurred in 2004/2005 and it was on the recommendation of a fellow Traveller to India. She suggested that if, after 4-5 months of travel about South East Asia and India in particular, I would like to sample some 'back home style of food' But with... More

If you love books and want to spend hours browsing books and food, try Cafe Turtle in Khan Market. Euro-American food selection, pleasant setting.

Grab a book from the book store downstairs and settle down in a corner. Outdoor seating is great when the weather's good.
