CALL - 9736083878 FOR FREE HOME DELIVERY

We have been running “Taste of India” since 1995 a long time. Being the first restaurant to be “published” in “Lonely Planet” In Mcleodganj.We have re-located 2 years back from jogiwara road( centre of market) to now- “Opposite Tipa Dharamkot road” in Mcleodganj. People are missing our food. New Location - Our new location which is just 800 meters away from main square which is 2 min drive and a 10 minute walk only on dharamkot road just opposite TIPA  .Our new arrangement offers a beautiful “garden restaurant” with exotic plants and “amazing views” of the valley.

Our food - We not only cook good food but it is our passion to be consistent with our quality we are sure of providing the food to all people who are willing to taste some delicious Indian food which is not “bland” or “over spicy” neither “oily” or “stale”.

If you feel lazy to leave your room -  Generally, people staying in hotels do not get the “desired” meals within there rooms and have to compromise with whatever they get even if that food may not be upto the mark and no vacation is complete without food. But our food delivery will provide you a “range” of “north-indian cuisine.

We serve fresh, hygienic, aromatic flavours . We deliver in”Mcleodganj” and nearby places like – Dharamkot, Bhagsu-nag, Tibetan library etc. If tyou are staying a little far off you can always call us and discuss for “delivery” and we will be more than happy if we could serve you our food.

We too offer “packed-lunches” for trekking/pic-nic or a “get away”. Just visit us on the new location or dial – 9736083878, 9736040937 to experience “authentic Indian food”

“Friendly, clean and beautiful!” 5 of 5 stars Reviewed 28 August 2014 This review is very late, but I just had to write this because my stay at McLeodganj Homestay was just so fabulous. I stayed here for two nights and the hosts Nisha Aunty and her son Saahil were ever so helpful. Right from booking the homestay, everything went so smoothly that I didn't have anything to worry during my trip. The Saris have a beautiful house with a small cafe and a wonderful small nursery. The house looks beautiful when lit up at night. The room was decent and clean. There was a small water issue one day but they were prompt to solve it. I fell ill on the second day and they were very helpful at that time. A wonderful place to stay while in McLeodganj (though it is little walk uphill from the main town). Stayed June 2014, travelled solo monty1505 Kochi

“Homestay at private bungalow!!” 5 of 5 stars Reviewed 28 August 2014 1) Mcleodganj Homestay is located at flourishing flora on dharamkot road, exactly 800 meters or 7-8 minute walk from Mcleodganj Main square. I stayed here with a group second time. This is a private bungalow suitable for travelers who want to stay in homestay. This property is designed in excellent way that although being a homestay your privacy is maintained. Since each room having independent entrance and with a private bathrooms. The feel of the location IS SUCH THAT IT TAKES AWAY ALL THE MENTAL STRESS THAT IS THERE IN YOUR DAILY LIFE AND PRESENTS A PEACEFUL ATMOSPHERE DUE TO THE VIEW OF THE VALLEY AND THE PINE TREES THAT SURROUND YOU. On my arrival owners son sahil and kulbhushan welcomed us. And served delicious breakfast cooked by aunty Nisha . After having the breakfast we kept sitting on the wooden deck which is so nicely decorated with different plants and flowers, you never feel like leaving the table. Property is small with simplicity embedded and cleanliness is maintained very well. I never got to know that when did these 3 days went away. I will definitely come back.
