This restaurant is located right at the Mall. Surrounded by large glass panels this place offers a good ambiance for dining. The food is great too.

Ashiana is one of the oldest restaurants on the Mall, Shimla. Serves very good indian food both veg and non veg. I have not tried any other cuisine there. Their chicken tangri is outstanding. Generally packed full during lunch hours

This place has very slow service. We had to wait for 15-20 minutes to place an order. The taste of food was average but the USP is its location. Its bang on the Ridge.
