An exclusively vegetarian joint run by same group which runs the Frank Ross medicine shops and owners of EMAMI. We first had a cup of tea on a sunny wintry chilly morning after a bout of walking and marketing. Nice tea do they serve. We came back the same evening for dinner. Light stuff. Good taste. Well priced. Good ambience.... More

Very nice vegetarian restaurant and the Aloo Paratha was exquisite. The view is also amazing, seating is limited so sometimes you may have to wait. But definitely worth the wait.A bit overpriced

Place is fine. Actually not so many cozy and not overpriced places in Darjeeling. Good interior, comfortable. Few tables with electric sockets, so suitable for laptop work. Food is good (try veg manchurian and pongal). Some vegetarian and western options. No extra charges. Serving Darjeeling tea. But I got it not in a clean cup, so can't enjoy it. -... More

The first meal we had in Darjeeling was at this place. Cheese Masala Dosa was sumptuous...visited this place more than twice for the south Indian delicacies. Pricing is reasonable too. 😊

Asked for an espresso and got a black filter coffee and the tea came with sugar in it so much so that it just tasted like milky sugar water! There are far better places in town!
