“Live music”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 February 2014

Probably the only restaurant in Kalimpong with live music performances in the evening! It has become a popular joint for the youngsters of the town as this is the only place where they can experience night life in the quiet hills.
Food is good, serves mainly oriental dishes with Chinese items familiar to Indian taste buds.

“Lovely restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 November 2013

But I wonder why it is not more populated. The approach is not too good, through a crowded market and up two flights of stairs. The service was excellent as was our Chinese meal. The décor of the restaurant is quirky and nostalgic.

“A good range of decent food in the centre of town”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 May 2013

Strangely, given the title, there is no Thai food available, but they have a good range of West Bengalese basics and Nepalese food as well. Having ate there quite a few times over five weeks or so, I did get the feeling they used the same basic spice mix for a lot of things; equally, the ingredients always seemed fresh and there was plenty of everything. They are also happy to try and tone down the spice if you are a little sensitive to it.

Service was also friendly and helpful, making it a good place to go at practically any time and be sure of a decent meal

“Neat food!”

One of the few places where you get nice food with a decent choice for alcohol topped with tastefull music. Not a a bad attempt at all.
