“An oasis of calm”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 27, 2013

Good restaurants, apart from those in hotels, are sometimes hard to find in this part of India (although have to admit we hardly made an exhaustive search). We were staying in the Radisson and didn't fancy their rather sterile restaurant, and our guide directed us to Brownie's. It's a simple cafe-style place, with very friendly service from incredibly energetic waiters. Food was excellent. We had tandoori-chicken, dhal and a selection of the heavenly breads. The Buddhist decoration gave the clue that this wasn't a typical Hindu restaurant although am not sufficiently expert to know whether the food was more Nepalese than Indian.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 22, 2013

After travelling in India and if u need a break from Indian Food ,this is the place to visit.It is a small cosy , quite and good for a evening dinner chat with small groups of friends. All the staff are friendly, especially Wang yat lepcha. speaks fairly good English and provide excellent service too. Food taste average, prices slightly steep.

“Great value great service fantastic menu”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2013

This one of the clean restaurants I have come across in India. It offers wide variety of menus Indian Chinese Italian and normal western cuisine. It has rustic ambience and great friendly staff fluent in English. Indian food is less spicy compared to other places. And to top it all there is free WiFi. Don't miss this place!
