Ladakh Serai

Saboo village, near Leh, Ladakh

There are two dining areas: the traditionally designed Ladakhi dining room, and the canopied outside space where breakfast is usually served, weather permitting.

Breakfast is a buffet, a large and typical spread of fresh fruit, juice, local bread, eggs cooked to order, baked beans, grilled vegetables and cornflakes accompanied by Indian dishes like poori-aloo, poha and paranthas. Filter coffee and a variety of teas (the masala tea is very good) are available.

Both lunch and dinner are served in the dining room, the food spread over many courses and served to you, piping-hot on beautiful copper dishes.

Lunch is usually a smaller meal, taking into account that most guests are out on excursions and day-trips. Expect something like dal, vegetables and chicken curry served with rice and roti.

Dinner is the main event, and comprises at least ten to twelve dishes: everything from a local thentuk (noodle soup dish) to pizza and pasta accompanied by a wide variety of Indian dishes including lentils, veg, chicken curry and mutton.

Despite the large number of dishes everything manages to be distinctly flavoured and delicious. The atmosphere is lovely, you never feel crowded despite the communal nature of the setting. There are two informal areas, with low cushions instead of tables and chairs, on the other side of the room. Here you can enjoy drinks and snacks. Local wine and a reasonable range of spirits (for Ladakh, which has limited options) are available.

Breakfast has all the standard Western options plus Indian dishes too.

The lunch and dinner menu is a mix of well combined Indian and international cuisine. Indeed, it’s intelligently designed keeping in mind that Ladakh Serai gets a range of nationalities and type of traveller, everyone from Gujarati families with food restrictions to affluent Londoners.

Dining nearby

There’s nothing in the village of Saboo but Choglamsar, the old Tibetan refugee settlement, is a 10-minute drive away, its streets lined with small cafés and restarants that serve decent Tibetan food. Ask the staff at Serai or your local taxi driver for where to go.

Otherwise there’s Leh, only a 20-minute drive away, which has cafés and restaurants serving all kinds of cuisines. Amigos is a popular place for backpacker-style healthy and cheap Korean food; Ja Khang for excellent coffee and homemade cakes; Eclectic Kitchen for its multi-cuisine that covers Indian, Western and Tibetan staples; and Bon Apetit for good international food in a beautiful setting.
