After walking few kilometers when I was unable to decide what to eat, I entered to this café which is downhill 200 meters from Mcleodganj main square. The café has a very magnificent mountain view and they server very tasty hygienic pizzas and pastas. I ordered for myself Spinach pizza which came just in 200 rupees and I was unable... More

The pizza is unreal. So delicious. The restaurant offers both indoor and outdoor dining. The first time I ate there, I ate outside. What a view and what good pizza.

I would say that Namgyal has the best pizza in town. They have quite a rich menu - all vegetarian - but pizza is the best. Just don't try the vegan one - it's the only one I wouldn't recommend. Unless you like things dry and tasteless. India still needs to learn that vegan does not mean boring!

The pizza here is great. If you are craving some home-style pizza without having to go to pizza hut, then Namgyal is the spot. Great views from the balcony.

Very stable. Same as 23years before. I like it very mutch. People and food are honest. The Pizza is great. And I can accept that there is no option for booking in advance. The view into Kangra Valley is a kind of meditation. No rediculous luxus-but all whats nessessary to feel well. Uwe

Delicious food and will not disappoint! Didn't have the pizza but both times I went I tried the tofu dishes or Chilli eggplant. Sooooo good! Shame the location hides it away from view... But go if you want a hearty meal. You might wait a bit... But this is India :)

We came here after all the rave we read about the amazing pizza. I'm a backpacker and have been everywhere so I'm pretty chill when it comes to service. So please believe me when I say that waiting for service here is like watching ice melt - in the freezer! The staff will really not ask for your order. Waited... More

It was a beautiful day and the view from the seating area is fantastic! The pizza is really great and we loved the atmosphere. I was looking for the bathroom and went the wrong way. Below the cafe is where the Tibetans gather to gamble. They were engrossed in a very active game. I met Mariko, local transgender monk, there.... More
