The Original Foodies Guide to Kashmir

Updated: JUNE 2019

This regularly updated guide is based totally on my own taste buds. Some establishments focusing more on PR than the quality of their food may be missing.

The guide is now split into two sections – the Foodie’s Guide and an overview of Kashmiri food.

Most restaurants should be open on all days with a bit of caution on Fridays. Best of luck.

Currently recommended for Srinagar:

Ahdoos on the Residency Road.

Cafe Liberty on the M.A. Road.

Lhasa on the Boulevard for free home delivery.

A ‘Kashmiri Food‘ primer.

Note to travellers: Well-stocked departmental stores like the centrally-located Pick n Choose in Srinagar carry all kinds of baby essentials and specialty foods so you don't have to carry them along.
