Awesome ambiance and very tasty foods.Mainly they are specialized in Chinese food but recently they are preparing very tasty North-Indian dishes,specially tandoori items.

You wont notice the restuarant although its just at the centre of the crossing. Our driver took us there.The restuarant looks extremely shabby from outside but once you enter, the feeling will change a bit since the food served is good in taste. They serve both Indian and Chinese food. But Chinese food needs a bit of improvement.!! And the... More

It's not about luxury since you can't expect any such place in town. But it's one o the best this small town has to offer. Try their cocktails for reasonable price.

We always take our young sponsored children out for lunch and find it clean and the food delicious. The Chicken Fried Rice and Hakka Noodles are a real treat for the kids and they are always keen to eat there. We go there for dinner and it is a great place to have a quiet drink after a hot and...

Dreadful food, no alcohol licence so no beer. Alternative was a bottle of soda, undrinkable as it must have been months after its Sell By Date. No apologies from indifferent staff. A real shocker

Place with Jamboree of themes. From football flags to mannequins, to motorcycle. Decor is garishly loud but a novelty. Catch a drink and chill out with your friends. I believe it would be one of the largest restaurants in Kalimpong. Most hapening place in city, as I was made to understand. All things said, not a place you should go... More

Well, what I always say is that even bad Thai food is pretty darn good. King Thai in Kalimpong has proved me wrong. Their Thai red curry is vile. There's nothing Thai, red, or curry about it. It tastes like super terrible Chinese food, which makes me think their Chinese food can't be that good either. On the other hand,... More

This is the largest restaurant in Kalimpong. It's up on the third floor of the "Maa Supermarket" at the beginning of the main road. It can get smoky and loud later in the day. But at least they're open later (up to 9pm). Most of the food is spicy, but tastes great. And it's one of the few places in... More
