Multicuisine in Leh

A Russian–Indian couple has created a menu that really covers the globe. Expect a lot of the more interesting seasonal dishes to be unavailable (guacamole, Uzbek shorba soup) but the chicken breast with mango salsa is excellent. Plus lots of salads and all the usuals.

It's all served in an attractive upstairs room dressed like a lama in maroon and yellow and lit with long-hanging wicker lamps. Rooftop tables have fine views, and the chill-out zone is a popular (if semisecret) hang-out for low-key cocktails, beers and water pipes.
