Hi Cheese Lovers. Just just just try Yak cheese pizza and rest in peace. :) The cheese is so good that you will die eating.

This was the restaurant we visited on our first evening in Leh after we had acclimatized the entire day. I had read rave reviews of their yak cheese pizza and could hardly wait to try it out (being the major cheese lover that I am). It was delicious! They have lots of other baked cookies and cakes, but it was... More

I loved Gesmo! We visited this place twice, once for dinner and then for breakfast. Only horrible bit was the veg steamed momos! They were barely edible. Apart from that, everything that I had here was delicious. Especially the breakfast options, they have one called the 'gesmo special', that was simply amazing. They serve freshly baked homemade bread which is... More

The place is right in main market and is easily accessible from Changspa Road as well as Old Road. We have had quite a few meals here and won't say they were unique or too luscious however what makes them special is the cosy environment here. Masala Chai And Lafa can be tried. Wi-fi is unpredictable. Washrooms are a weak... More

Tried to eat here once. Very crowd. Food is just okay, not so bad. But pretty expensive. And taking time so long to serve even after 930pm and no any new order but ours. When we were eating, they asked us to move to other table because there is big order like 10 or 15 people and they like them... More

Always packed and raised our curiosity. The food was average but the place is really unclean. Toilet was totally disgusting. One of our friends who had salad didn't feel well for a couple of days after. The lassi was nice but the omellette and potato tikis were too oily for our liking. Ok place, can miss.

My capsule review :) * Located in the main market area. * Finding parking is a bit tough as road is narrow a bit * Was not happy with the venue and the food. Read my full review by visiting my website, the link is available in my profile. LifeThoughtsCamera ranks #8 in TopIndianBlogs

The diner is beautiful place to spend some time lazing out and trying authentic ladaki food. This place boasts of the best lafayas and sandwiches. The cakes and cookies are also good. Would recommend eating in rather than taking home as the food taste awesome when had there.

Seriously, #1 in Leh? No way, there are much better places than this. We tried yak pizza, don't repeat our mistake. We tried some sweets, they were OK but nothing special. Other food does not have chances to stick in your memory either. Central location and friendly staff are the only advantages this place has.
