Ladakhi cuisine | Reviving lost recipes


Local food of Leh, Ladakh

Based on the concept of reviving the lost cuisines of Ladakh, Namza dining started out in 2016. With this vision, we offer extensive hand-crafted dishes of Ladakh as well as those dishes which has made its way through the ancient silk route. Leh was one of the old trading towns on the silk road junction linking Tibet, Kashmir, Central Asia and Yarkhand. This led to great cultural exchange fused in terms of food, clothing, religious practices and architecture.
