Description: The Tibetan Kitchen is a cozy and charming eatery in the bustling town of Leh. Tucked away behind a Tibetan market on Fort Road, it's one of the oldest and best place to eat in Leh. The restaurant has a humble ambience and a lovely sit out open to the sky. In peak season it is extremely crowded and at most times you have to wait to get a table. Speaks volume of the food, if the place has people flocked and waiting for a table you know the food ought to be great. Creating a variety of taste buds we serve Tibetan, Chinese, Thai, Continental and Indian cuisine along with chilled beer. The food is made fresh, we make the dishes from scratch that you have to give us enough time to have your order served and you will be pleasantly delighted. You can also sit out in the open space, order a cup of tea or coffee and some starter, read book in the evening and it can be very relaxing. Usually after the peak lunch hour the place is quiet. Other authentic Tibetan dishes like Gyako are made on request and you have to order a day ahead because it takes time to cook and are prepared in the most authentic way

This place is extremely popular, when we reached there, there was a half an hour wait time. We waited for some time and ordered our food and then the table was made available to us.
Our hopes were very high for the place, but the food was just about average to above average. Maybe because we were vegetarians, the options were limited. In any case the food was better than what we had eaten at out hotel but still it could have been improved significantly.

Off the main road this place has a bare basic setup but is usually crowded as all dishes are well made and at a reasonable price. Service is a bit slow but otherwise just fine.. the place anyway has a laid back ambience where you can relax if you are not in a rush its not full. Honey chicken was both crisp and juicy ... one of the best we have had. Definitely a place to go to again ... if its not full, that is.

The food in the hotel where we were staying got monotonous after a while. So we tried this place. Al the items that we ate, starting from soup to fried rice to noodles, hunan chicken were very good. Quantity in one plate was sufficient for two of us. The grilled trout also was very good.

Had lunch on 2 occasions on our trip to Ladak. Fast and friendly service. Taste of food was average, prices were okay too. Thought would have more variety of Ladaki food!
