It's an HPTDC restaurant at the Ridge Shimla . We went here for dinner .nice interiors ,comfortable seating. They have indoor and outdoor seating , We would have preferred outdoor seating but it was full, so we sat indoors. We ordered Chicken Manchurian and Chicken...Chowmein (Rs 280 each ) . Food was tasty and decent portion (Indo Chinese) . A nice place to sit and unwind . They have Himachali dishes ( Madra, Sepu Vadi, rice etc) which looked interesting . Service was slow .More

It is a great experience.The staff is very welcoming and charming. The ambience is very pretty. The food was excellent. There are plethora of delectable dishes one can choose from. Paneer saag was absolutely delicious.This place has the best butter chicken and goat curry. Even...in India I hadn't tasted such delicious dish. Ashiana Tandoori is the best restaurant for a happy,satisfied tummy. Cant wait to go back and eat there again:)More

During our long stay in Shimla we visited this restaurant on many occasions and every time we enjoyed their food. Our recommendations are Himachali thali and their chicken curry !!

It is Himahcal Tourism's restaurant located along the Ridge Shimla. Most of the delicacies are good but I will recommend Himachali dishes especially Sepu Badi and Chana/Rajma Madra. Ashiana is along the road and Goofa is in the basement,

Went their for lunch, although a bit crowded was impressed as they followed all COVID protocols. The food we ordered was largely Himachali cuisine and must say it was very good. The place is a must visit

The food, service, view and ambience are just great! For vegetarians - Try sepu vadi (it is bland and non spicy but the authentic flavours are nice) and Chana Madra For non vegetarians - Try Anardana Chicken (Not on the menu but you can ask...them) and Cha Meat See if your server is Mr Sanjiv Kumar. His service is the best I have seen till date in any restaurant anywhere in the world!More

I went at the restaurant and sit to wait for an order around 30 minutes then wait for next 1 hour only for the food . No one is entertaining you if you are there alone or couple . They are focusing on families ....Poor taste food having no spices. Also I complaint for the late service then they give me 10% discount to cover up . Suggested everyone not to waste their money and time .More

I had there Lunch and evening snacks.As it is located just in The Ridge area so it is crowded all times.In the evening time, I went only for the biggest Samosa,which costs Rs.55/- per piece.But for this one piece of Samosa I have to wait...for 15-20 minutes.Next day on for lunch we have to wait for 30 mins for getting a table.Thank god I had ordered the food, that was also predecided that to have the Himachali Rice and curd mutton.Both these items were superb.But Samosa is not upto the markMore

Hi Dheeraj, The place is spacious for 30-40 people. Unfortunately I dont have the number or email id. If you are in shimla its better to speak with them.
