I went hunting for this Restuarant and couldn't find it. Finally I asked another cafe owner and she confirmed that it's been a year that the Restuarant has closed down. :(

The hostess, an old lady sat with us and we had great time listening to her stories and the food she served was fingerlicking, the glass noodles I had, I will remember the taste forever, and we tasted momos and other tibetan dishes too and all were excellent.

I tried to find this restaurant on my recent visit to Dharamshala (25-29 Sep) but cound not find it. I inquired from the locals, nobody could tell me the location. One local said, Gakyi is closed and now we have Lobsang's Four Season's Cafe in place. I tried finding the restaurant on Google maps, was not able to locate it.... More

Loved this restaurant so much. They serve very tasty traditional Tibetan food. We have been eating here almost every lunch and dinner we had in McLeod Ganj!

We went 3 times ! The food is simply out-of-the-world. The lady owner is so friendly and is motherly looking. She knows, how to treat her guests. The food quantity is very sufficient. Each dish tastes different from the previous one. One wonders, how can one restaurant prepare so differently within one vertical !! We tried Tofu, Noodles, Soups....can't recall... More

Great Tibetan food from a small restaurant close to the temple in the middle of town. Fried garlic potatoes, fried veg momo, or banana honey curd were all great. Everything we tried was good. Clean dinning area and good service.
