Chail has a handful of restaurants and local Dhabas. One can try local Himachali cuisine here too. Other than these, the options for food here are somewhat limited. Tourists covering Chail along with Shimla should make Shimla their base as it has a range of restaurants which serve different cuisines like North Indian, South Indian, Chinese, Continental etc. Surprisingly, one may not find a lot of places in Shimla that serve the local Pahadi food, unlike Chail.
