One of the best foods I've had in Mcleodganj. We haodered Hakka noodles with Mongolian style curry and mutton shafale and the staff was really courteous and friendly. I'd recommend this place to relax after a long trek to triund.

Nice spot in town looking over the main square. Sit on the balcony if you can. Best to eat the local Tibetan food. Fried veggie momo’s were great.

This place is situated near the main square. They serve very tasty Tibetan food, bakery products, Italian, Thai & Nepali dishes for their guests. This place is clean. You can also have your food in balcony watching the busy road down below.
