The food is the same old gorgeous. And whether its chilly or hot outside, these guys don't shut shop like the rest.

The hotel rooms at Snow Lion are great. The beds are a little on the stiffer side, so if you are someone who needs to sleep on a cloud, this might not be the best place for you. The food at the restaurant is great, and the staff are very friendly.

This has been usual breakfast spot for many years. The staff are always friendly and welcoming, and the food is always good. The have set breakfast choices which are a great deal. If you want an off the menu speciality ask for the "Ashish" breakfast consisting of two poached eggs served on top of roasted potatoes, capuccino and butter toast.

Snow lion serves great thupka and momos. Their apple pie and lemon curd pie are just too good. Great value for money. Wish they'd do something about the flies and air conditioning!

Snow lion is a comfortable cafe place and I went for breakfast several times. Their set breakfasts are cheap and very good for the price. Wifi is available as well. As with many other places in McLeod Ganj it can fill up so expect to share your table with strangers

Best value in Dharamsala. Family run restaurant, authentic Tibetan food and home ambiance. One dish is enough for a big lunch or dinner and you'll get surprised with the price

Since Snow Lion is used all over town, this sounds like the one across from the temple in the main market area. Then we are talking about the right one.
