Eating Places Mcleodganj

Mcleodganj is a virtual playground when it comes to international cuisine, with travelers from around the globe, here are some eating places that come recommended.

McLLo Restaurant
Crowded at nights and justifiably popular, this big place above the noisy bus stand area serves a mind-boggling menu of Indian, Chinese and international fare, including pizzas and pasta. It’s also one of the best places to enjoy an icy cold beer (Rs100), and it has cider and wines. Beware when it is overcrowded as food quality tends to drop.

Oogo’s Cafe Italiano
This cute hole-in-the-wall place serves up mainly Italian fare, but with a few surprises – waffles, baked potatoes, intriguing pasta dishes like ‘chicken vodka’ and even grilled lamb chops. The atmosphere is warm and busy and there are tempting desserts, as well as a bookshelf full of reading material.

Ashoka Restaurant
This stylish timber-lined restaurant serves reliable Indian veg and nonveg dishes such as mutton korma and chicken masala. Upstairs is a rather cramped roof terrace.

Chocolate Log
One of McLeod’s original cake shops and still setting a high standard for sweets, coffee and freshly baked cakes.

Jimmy’s Italian Kitchen
Jimmy’s is a well-established Italian place with a new location upstairs opposite the chorten. Authentic pizzas with real pepperoni, and a good range of pasta dishes.

French Café
For crepes and coffee made the French way, try this small café near Taste of India. The owner does magic shows some evenings.

Tibet Kitchen
This newly built restaurant in the town square serves authentic Tibetan dishes, do take a prior booking on busy days.

Carpediem
Down the narrow street from the post office is this quaint place on the 1st floor serving great soups, freshly baked pizzas and a variety of Thai food.
