Personally when I visit a place, I basically look for two things; 1- Healthy clean food & 2- the staff who caters to your need with dedication and a smile and the pema is a combination of both. I have been to The pema for multiple occasions and I am very much satisfied with the service they provide. In addition to the warm ambience, I am very impressed with the staff who are well trained and looks after every small details which makes the visit a pleasant one.
