Must visit for the ambience and their cute crockery. Tried the local noon chai-let me give a small warning, it is not any usual chai and most certainly it is an acquired taste. It is made of gunpowder tea, milk and baking soda. I would...recommend it, but it is definitely not everyone's cup of tea. They have multiple varieties of teas and you can just sit there and chill with one pot of tea and some local bread.More

Saffron Kahwa was great - specially with the gulukand. The grilled trout took some time, but it was definitely worth the wait. The decor and the crockery is tastefully done

Fabulous lil place. It's a feast for the eyes and those in love with instagramming their food experience. Tastefully decorated but with a limited menu. The teas are good. Snacks n eats are limited but nice. Harissa and trout are well prepared. Service is slow...but courteous. The view is nice too. Opens early so visit in forenoon hrs to get all the fare. Downside- it's pricey.More

This one of those cafes designed for Instagram, it is beautiful and you can tell that a lot of thought has gone in bringing all of this together from the décor to the menu. And it does have a unique character brought out with these...elements. They also have a art gallery for those interested. Their motto is that it is place between Kashmiri and British, and it truly is. Coming to food, it does take a backstage as the focus is on beverages, especially there 40 kinds of tea. Options are limited but all seemed sumptuous. I ordered Uzbek Naan with Mutton Keema, it was nice and hot.More

The menu, the decor, the flavours, and the entire setting makes this tea cafe a very sought after afternoon joint. The ambience is relaxing and one can spend a lot of time here sipping tea with savouries over interesting conversations!

Overhyped & Overpriced. Nice decor but way to pricy. Good views of the river & garden. Menu is not very elaborate.
