Our guide brought us to the Alfa Restaurant for a late lunch during our walking tour of Shimla. It’s a “simple” restaurant, nothing fancy. The place was packed the whole time we were there — I think we were the only westerners in the restaurant....The menu seemed to be robust with Indian, Chinese and international foods. We weren’t real hungry, so we decided on a simple lunch of soup, naan and lentils. All was very good, as was the service.More

Worst restaurant of Shimla. They discriminate between Indians and foreigners. I went with my bae and ordered chicken burger and coffee. The same were also ordered by a foreigner couple. However they asked us to sit in outer area saying that this order is not...served here and asked to move to outer area (and vacate the lounge we were sitting).I pointed the waiter that how cud foreigners eat same burger and coffee at this area why not indians.he was clueless .I immediately out of frustration moved out of the restrauant.so anyone of you can decide how much humiliation and discrimination within my own country I faced. I don't knw how I will be compensated for such discrimination faced .bad restraurant with bad policies . Restraunt owner should compensate for this .More

Well, this place really serves a good variety of food which you may find delectable. I enjoyed my meal there. The price is also reasonable considering the location and food quality. The service was disappointingly slow and poor, but that is understandable keeping the crowd...in mind.More

Our expectation was being located in a prominent place in The mall, it would serve tasty and delicious preparations. We were quite disappointed. The continental dishes we ordered were not properly prepared and also the quality of chicken was tough.

This is one of the hotel which I got to eat worst chicken biriyani and we had to order one more dish ( chicken fried rice ), which was just average for the price.
