Budget, Budget, Budget Contrary to what the ambience, service and food quality might make you believe, this is the best "value for money" restaurant in Mcleodganj. Situated just five minutes from the town, this authentic Japanese restaurant has a wide variety of both vegetarian as well as non-vegetarian dishes and irrespective of what you take, you will not be disappointed....

Considering my pallet , I was really sceptical of trying our Japanese . I won't regret much though! The owners are adorable! I tried out the specials which is a good engh meal for one. Initially struggled with veg sushi, but the gravies are good. Unlike other restaurants, the prices aren't sky high. Quite affordable with dollops of love! This... More

When somebody hears Veg Japanese, they ask how can Japanese be veg. But LungTa has been able to crack it and offers excellent veg Japanese food. They have picked the right Veg Japanese dishes and paired them to form excellent meals. The pricing is excellent, comparing it to other Japanese food joints and the ingredients are all hand picked and... More

you should try this if you wanna enjoy vegetarian Japanese cuisine in Mcleodganj. But you have to go early as they take their last order by 8:30 pm but sometimes their food finish by 8 pm itself. But its worthwhile to go for vegetarian sushi and jasmine tea.

I was in and around Dharamsala/McLeodGanj for a couple of months in the spring and summer. Lung Ta was one of my favorite restaurants! I went there many times and always loved my meals. The daily special is a great deal and changes every day of the week. There is always a delicious bowl of Miso Soup, a beautiful presentation... More

I ordered the Egg-Don, which was not too bad. Other dishes might have been better. I enjoyed the atmosphere there. It was a Japanese restaurant in the midst of Tibetan and Indian culture. So that was interesting.

No sure that I'd say LungTa serves 'authentic" or "delicious" Japanese food. The place is run by a Japanese lady who's been here since 1999 I think. There's also a Tibetan man, I'm not sure if they're a couple or just business partners. Anyway, while it's true that it's real Japanese food cooked by real Japanese (Japanese backpackers volunteer here... More

Once we found this restaurant, we were there for at least one meal a day for the duration of our trip. I went with the daily special every time, an enormous amount of food for 200 INR. Everything has been fantastic and FAST, and all of the staff have been kind. I tried something I'd never seen before, a grapefruit... More

So glad to find such awesom Japanese vegetarian food here in Dharamsala. Ordered the set meal of the day which came with sushi, miso soup, stewed potato and French beans. Also ordered the Kariage don that tasted so authentic. Would love to be back again to savor the rest of the dishes here!

Considering that you are in a hillstation, in INDIA, it would be a little absurd to expect fantastic authentic Japanese cuisine. But here you have it, cheap and superbly tasty - I went 4 times and it was always packed. I'd recommend the egg don to anyone, but all the food was great. And the little biscuits you can buy...
