“Doodh Jalebi”
Reviewed June 21, 2014

By far the best memory of Simla. The Doodh Jalebi is still the way I remember it.
Unfortunately they were out of Samosas by 1700 hrs.

“For sweet tooth head to this place on Lower Bazar”
Reviewed May 29, 2014

The shop is very old, probably more than 100 years. Its located just when the Lower Bazar road meets the Mall road near CTO.
The place serves variety of sweets.
Try their jalebis and ras malai.

“Famous Halwai of Shimla”
Reviewed November 12, 2013

Nathuram Halwai, located at the end of the Lower Bazaar on Mall Road is an heritage halwai. Awesome sweets and snacks to order. Has the unique taste of a small town family owned heritage joint.

Try Doodh Jalebi for sure, which is a specialty.

“sweets to die for!”
Reviewed September 13, 2013

Nathuram Latchman Dass Pure Ghee Sweets, tucked away in the end of the Lower mall road is an unassuming facade for an Institution that deserves special mention in Shimla. It looks like any regular "Halwai". Don't be fooled by appearances. The chairs and tables are simple and well worn. When you order the Mawa sweets expect the rich taste of milk to come through with the right blend of flavors, the jelabis were crisped to perfection and just sweet, fresh and melt in your mouth! But what took the honors was the Gulab Jamun. It was the 'piece de resistance'! the best gulab jamun that you may have ever had! whatever they do to make it what that was, does work, and How! the subtle taste assaults your tastebuds leaving you wanting more. We did have second rounds and had to stop as they were filling too! What really endeared us to this place, was their refusal to serve Samosas that were lined up in the large plate. The master just said in hindi, "saab, that is not good enough!" certainly laying a high standard for themselves! it's well worth the walk down to the lower mall road and you will never regret it!
