“Darjeeling's Best”
Reviewed June 12, 2014

I went to her restaraunt 5 years ago and it's the only one that I still talk about to this day;because of all the memories. The food is great, but the atmosphere is awesome not just with the workers but also with the community of the other theorist at the restaurant was great, so all around the restaurant was outstanding.

“Best Breakfast in Darjeeling”
Reviewed May 31, 2014

Need is say more?

If you can get a table, this is the best breakfast around. I always enjoyed Set Breakfast D with a Coffee. The coffee is good, but it's good basically everywhere in town.

“best breakfast in INDIA>>>>”
Reviewed May 29, 2014

I arrived in Darjeeling 2 months ago, I was so sick and tired, and when I found SONAM KITCHEN I understood that I have found PARADISE> I come every day since the8th of april and not only the food but the kindness, the intelligence, the smile of Sonam and Laxmi and husband are really special. Sonam kitchen and restaurant are the same. You see Magnolia Hotel and you get in. BUT NOTHING TO DO WITH MAGNOLIA HOTEL.... Sonam`s breakfast is her special breakfast. So clean, and a lot of choice. You do not want to stop eaiting and you look forward going there in the morning, special coffee... GREAT>>> and PANCAKES>>>GREAT....and PASTA>>>>>and SOUP and the whole menu, believe me I was so sick and no energy and SONAM`S food brought back my health so I stay here. They have also nice rooms to rent, clean and confortable, for big families or for single people, nice views and good prices. Then if you need shoes or clothes for treking, no problem, In a second SONAM come to you with the right pair of boots, the right jacket the right trousers. Believe me I have been travelling through INDIA for seven years and to find such place is really a gift. Darjeeling is more beautiful with SONAM and her husband and the beautiful Laxmi. Thank you Sonam, for your smile and you are always so happy even with people who are a little impolite. You know the way, a smile costs nothing and give happiness. You make me feel so well and I think I will stay here 2 more months.
THANKS again and please people who are reading do not miss SONAM`S KITCHEN>>>>

Reviewed May 28, 2014

its been more then a decade that i visited the cozy with hospitality at its best eatery place in a queen of hills....the most hygienic and delicious served with great love and affection distinguish it from the rest...and the best part of it is the bond that we share among the stranger sitting next to you with warm welcome of gesture and few minute spends here makes you feel the belonging of the Sonam's kitchen as its family member...The level and the quality of food served here is in a high swing of its improvement and are able to meet the need of any kind of visitor here....keep up doing the good work and thank you for homely atmosphere...
