At Serena Khaplu Palace we use
as much locally grown organic produce as possible to serve you with the freshest and most delicious mountain cuisine as well as to
support producers from the local area. Guests have many wonderful dining locations to choose from ranging from the more formal traditional royal dining to a number of outdoor garden locations with incredible views of the surrounding mountain ranges. For breakfast we offer fresh fruits, cereals and a wide selection of Pakistani and continental items inside our Sarfa Khar restaurant, on the outdoor terrace or in the beautiful royal gardens. Lunches are a casual affair with a delicious range of Baltistani & Pakistani cuisine that can be served in anyone of our magnificent dining areas. Gourmet picnics can also be arranged for guests out and about hiking or sightseeing. For dinner we specialize in local Baltistani, Pakistani & fusion dishes and in the summer months we offer a traditional BBQ in the Chaman Tsar garden. We can also arrange a romantic dinner under the stars or in the privacy of the Duksa Lounge. And for those who really want to relive the days of Royalty we offer an extravagant Royal High Tea in the Royal Palace – thoroughly recommended!
