They serve a wide range of authentic Himachali dishes prepared from organic vegetables sourced from their own farms. Regular Indian and Chinese options are also available on request. Do try local delicacies like Siddu, bhey, sattu, kodra, jatu and vadaare. Though Himachali cuisine is fairly simple, some of the dishes are almost exclusive to the state. Similarly, Kullu Trout is another special Himachal dish, best prepared in the Kullu region. The fish is first marinated in very little spice and cooked until it’s melt-in-your-mouth soft. Vegetarians needn’t be disappointed – dishes like bhey and dhaam are there to tickle your tastebuds too. They also serve fresh fruits from thor farms.
