I only ate i the restaurant of this magnificent property but it was one of the best meals of our trip.
Every tourist dreams of finding authentic tasty local cuisine beautifully cooked and perfectly served in a restaurant which is elegant comfortable and has all the trappings of luxury. Set such high standards and you will have difficulty meeting them unless you eat here.
Attentive smart interactive and well trained staff served us a wonderful meal starting with the traditional Tombo drink and then a delicious soup redolent with the flavours of the mountains. Then a selection of dishes including nettle and dried vegetables all equally delicious. We finished with Khir- a rice pudding with almonds and card omen and a very delicate cup of darjeeling tea.
This was top class in every way
