We found this place closed. It was on a Monday afternoon. And no sign of it even functioning. It looked like it has closed down. Unless they have shifted place, then they should update.

My second trip to Mcleod - 6 years later. The place retains it's charm and warmth. The food is still great, the ambiance cozy Service is quick - recommended for a nice afternoon/evening hang :) A bit of a climb up from the main square

The Sha Tang is to die for. So is the capsicum slice chicken gravy. Cinnamon swirl was overrated though.

Cute little Tibetan cafe a 2 minute walk from the main square. We had a French press coffee and a cinnamon swirl and croissant. Both were delicious. Great view of the himalayas from outside seating.

Atmospheric and cosy place in McLeod Ganj. Ive lived in McGanj a couple of years and been to this place many times. Everything on the menu is good, and its the kind of place you dont really want to move from.
