“If you can find a seat, it's such a great place.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 8, 2014

This place has good deals on Sushi, tempura and other Japanese delicasies. It's nearly always heaving, so expect to wait for a table, especially if there are more than 2 of you.

Worth the wait, as the food is delicious, staff is friendly, and it's a non-profit. Deserts are also worth a try, Lemon tarts and sugar cookies are great and well priced. Set menu's for sushi and tempura are the bomb. Had a good Om Rice here too. The deck has one of the best views of the Himalayas.

“Sushi Tuesdays and Fridays”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 4, 2014

Lung Ta is hands down one of the tastiest restaurants in town. Each day of the week they have a different special, and the Tuesday/Friday special is an order of sushi paired with warm potato and carrot stew, cooked greens, cucumber salad, and miso soup. Best sushi in town, CLOSED ON SUNDAYS.

All of the things on the menu are refreshing alternatives to the Indian and TIbetan food that you find all over town, especially if you are staying in India or in Mcleod for a long time. We highly recommend the kakiage don with or without egg, a deliciously filling soy sauce based rice dish with fried vegetables on top. The croquettes make a really tasty small meal or appetizer. The udon dishes are tasty too but less flavourful than the rice version. Prices are VERY reasonable for quality and quantity of food.

The place gets packed around meal times, so be prepared to share a table or to wait a few minutes. They are also a little understaffed at these times, so don't expect the fastest service or delivery of food. Compared to other restaurants in India, great service and excellent food. As an added bonus, the proceeds from the restaurant benefit Gu Chu Sum, a non-profit that helps Tibetan refugees when they arrive in Dharamsala.

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2014

We were in McLeod Ganj for only a few days, but ate at this restaurant twice. One of the tastiest Japanese restaurants I've ever eaten in, and one of the best meals I've ever eaten in India - especially after eating Indian food for months. Very low price as well, and their hot ginger lemon honey was excellent.
