The food served was really tasty. The fresh apples plucked from the orchard and mixed in the salad was really sweet and crunchy. The flavours of the local Tibetan cuisine came through very distinctly

This restaurant is one of the popular ones at Leh , just next to the Alchi Monastry. We stopped by for lunch .The award winning owner Chef Nilza, is very warm and hospitable . She came to check if everything was fine and we needed...anything . They have a limited yet unique menu. All women Staff. Rustic interiors with an open kitchen . Indoor and Outdoor Seating . We sat on the terrace , we tried: Chutagi -Ladaki Pasta with mutton- very good . Khambir ( Local Multidough bread stuffed with cheese and sausages )-Excellent. This was the star dish for me! Veg Pulao- Very good. Kahwa with almond slivers and saffron-excellent . The place was packed for lunch,must visit if you want to try authentic Ladaki food.More

We visited Alchi Monastary on our way to Leh from Kargil. Our driver informed beforehand to make the booking at Alchi's Kitchen as there is always a waiting in the restaurant. We reached at 1.30 pm and got the space instatntly. The restaurant has a...homely ambience, a nice balcony with a sit-out and the kitchen managed by all women staff. Ms Nilza helped us to select from all Ladakhi cuisine and we all relished the food including kids. The Khambir bread was super-delicious and even the Thupka, Aprcot juice and Pasta were very tasty. A must visit for enjoying the Ladakhi food and nice atmosphere.More

When we told our driver for the day that we were looking for authentic Ladakhi food, he pointed us to Alchi Kitchen. Everything about this place was authentic: its location on the first floor of a traditional house virtually next to the Alchi monastery, the...fact that all the cooks were women, and, most of all, the fact that they deliberately choose a small menu and traditional menu. Ladakh sat on the silk route, and its customs and people are a mix of Tibetan and Central Asian. In keeping with this, the stars of the menu are the khambir, a stuffed bread in the Central Asian style, and the celebratory chutagi, a farfalle shaped ravioli. But the local momo and the thukpa are also highly recommended (especially for the deep taste of the broth of the thukpa). If you are still game for more, consider the apricot juice, or the thick Ladakhi tea made with apricot nuts. And if it is celebrity that you want, remember that the owner has been a national award winner and a Vogue person of the year.More

We stopped here for lunch after visiting the Alchi monastery and temples. The choices are great. We had the stuffed Khambatta, thukpa and momos. All of these tasted very good. The place is run by a group of women who are cooking the dishes fresh...right in front of you. Be sure to book a table well before you go - there is always a big queue for people who are waiting to get in. Superb food.More

Perfect place to go to enjoy the authentic cuisines. We made the booking and completely let the owner/ chef decide the menu for our lunch. She was extremely sweet to make plenty of dishes, which were really delicious! Dont miss the desserts!!

The very first moment when I laid my eyes on this restaurant and saw the decor inside, I immediately knew we had to have our dinner here. I loved how true to the spirit of Ladakh they kept the decor with the vintage pottery items,...the 'choola' and the menu that has all of the well-known Ladakhi food items in it. The service took a little time but we didn't mind it AT ALL because the food arrived cooked fresh and we loved that!More

The restaurant is run by a women only team. The food is great and the ambience is awesome. The service is a little slow but remember that you are here to relax not to grab a working meal :)

Both our savoury and desert momos were great. The soup was rather bland. Definitely come in for the apricot, walnut, chocolate momos. They are little bites of heaven!

Food was really good and traditional! If you want to try proper Ladakhi cuisine this is the place to go. The dumplings (mok mok) were the best we had. The restaurant interiors is really homey and comfortable. Lovely service from local people :)
