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.

I went there twice while in McLeodganj and really liked the taste of food both times. Great pastas, Momos, Tibetian food and cakes. Located in the main square, so easy to access.
