Ordered pasta and a Shashlk Chicken mini meal. Both dishes tasted very different than what i am used to in Mumbai. The shashik was very tangy and tasted only of tomato. The pasta lacked flavor and was tasteless. One of my worst meals at Shimla

If you are a non-vegetarian, you probably are going to like this place more than the vegetarians. There are ample options on the menu but NOT Indian cuisine. And if you are a vegetarian, you probably will have to see through a very very limited range of choices. The food is good but cannot be termed as excellent as one... More

We were staying at the Baljee's Resort and decided to check out Cafe Soi which is located on the top floor of the hotel. The food is average and so is the service.

Look no further if you want to try continental food in Shimla.We tried the lasagne and Chicken Taco. I must say, the lasagne was one the best of its kind i have had in recent times. The ambience is colourful with great music. Highly recommended if you are in Mall road,Shimla.

A menu different from the general Shimla restaurants - mostly continental. A vast menu; average taste and service. But an interesting stop if you are tired of the everyday Indian food.

Very nice and warm place. The service is ok. I ordered mixed grilled vegetables: good, but they need to be more cooked. Fantastic garlic bread. My friend ordered pasta: good but overcooked.
