The place serves vegetarian food only so probably attractive for people who have to opt for such places only. The food is expensive and not of good quality and service is rude and slow. Best to avoid. Is located on the main road so should be easy to locate.

Located at Neheru Road, Darjeeling. Popular cafe among locals as well as tourists. Fine dine, good seating arrangement and good service. Pao vagi, bara Pao, grilled sandwich, dosa, Idli, pizza as well as puri sabji, alu partha also available. Tasty food, reasonable price. Staff's are very friendly and well trained. Must try to chocolate milk shake.

Vegans and vegetarians are well catered for at Frank Ross Café, one of a handful of only-vegetarian eateries in this town.

I liked the momo's a lot. But something here made me sick. I think it was the ice cream/sprite float. It was yummy, but like most places in Darjeeling, the dishes may be washed with tap water but if they're not dried off as well...you're probably going to get sick. Both my husband and I have upset stomachs.This isn't specific... More

tacos looked great in the photo, turned out to be microwaved baked beans on tortilla chips...wtf! Some of the other food looked more normal.

It is an average cafe with average food. With the price tag that they offer you can get better food like in Hasty Tasty for vegetarians and Keventers for Non Vegetarians

Bread rosted with garlic paste doesn't make garlic bread The salsa for tacos is just some veg curry The veg sandwiches have a really lame veg cutlet. That was our order. They do have pongal n dosas for those south people who are home sick... No idea if that's what gives it it's high rating

Went there for our dinner. The setting is not very tempting. Food quality is OK but platting and portion size is not great. We ordered Mumbai Sandwich and Enchilada. Sandwich was very usual. Enchilada was better than what we had at other places with strong flavours. Overall an average experience.

Thank Nitin A
