Keventer's Darjeeling : In this shot you can see on the left,the world famous Keventers Restaurant on Nehru Road in Darjeeling that leads to the Chowrasta Mall.On the right side at the back you get to see the Planters' Club.Both of them are more than a century old and a heritage of the British legacy in the hills of Darjeeling.Some romantic scenes have also been shot at the open terrace restaurant last year in the movie,"Barfee",where Ranbir Kapoor proposes to his lady love one of the tables here.
Keventer's is a must visit place in Darjeeling, if you are a non-veg lover specially pork ,sausages .Its famous for English Breakfast having eggs,sausages, pork and coffee or milkshake.All these you can have at the open terrace with the view of the Kanchenjunga quite clear from here during the Tourist Season.

Wonderful taken photo of the street market on one side and the restaurant on the edge of the slop. The view from the restaurant must be an overwhelming sight above town.
Vivid in colors and DOF is superb along the narrow street.
Cheers, have a nice week ahead,

Good perspective on this interesting and animated street. I like the atmosphere here and the low lighting.

The commercial street of Darjeeling Fabbs, I remember some noodles restaurants on the left, there are many products and things to buy in that street

Very well done, TFS.

Une belle scène de rue bien animée et très colorée malgré la lumière grise qui recouvre la journée. Le point de vue donne de la profondeur à la composition.

This reminds me of the famous lakkar bazar at Shimla, where the Tibetans sell jackets, sweaters, momoms etc.
I remember having clicked a similar shot in Shimla. I am going to search in the hard disk and if I find the one, I shall post it today.
Thanks for the mental tour to Shimla.

a beautiful note bout the place with the two buildings to coming from the British era.It would plesant to sit someone in the Keventer's terrace to eat the famous breakfast.The interior of the two building road,with the open air market,is a good point of interest for the city.

Nice POV, good framing and DOF. The colorful merchandise and buildings lend a festive effect. Good job with the sky!
PS. I am assuming this is the region from where Darjeeling tea comes.

The length of the street is givinbg depth and perspective to the composition. You have captured well the activities on that busy street. The good luminosity is enhancing the colours. Have a nice day.

Interesantan tekst o restoranu, sa datim podacima ...
Lep pogled na mesto i trenutak sa ljudima ...
Dobar trenutak snimka, kontrast i perspektiva, lepe boje.
Dobar rad, lepo pokazano mesto i trenutak.
Kod mene u Srbiji, mnogo se jede svinjsko meso.
Imajte lep dan, sve najbolje u novoj nedelji koja je pocela.
An interesting article about the restaurant, with the given data ...
Nice view of the place and time with people ...
A good time recording, contrast and perspective, beautiful colors.

For me, in Serbia, many eat pork.
Have a great day, all the best in the new week that started.

You're capturing well this road by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the legacy restaurant and club besides the many souvenir shops which stand in a row on both sides of the road. It's also impressive that many residents and travelers have gone this slope back and forth and there are so colorful.

un soggetto interessante che rappresenta molto bene la vita della città di Darjeeling, così come appare nei vari documentari che ci è dato di vedere in televisione.
Un angolo di mondo, poco conosciuto, che hai ripreso molto bene con una inquadratura idonea adf una fedele rappresentazione della realtà.
Ciao e buon inizio di settimana
ourania (18566) 2013-09-02 9:04
I like very much the layout of your composition, the excellent use of perspectives and the clarity that help us get into this street and its atmosphere. There's a great deal of details to study and learn about the daily life in this place. I also like the gentleman's presence in the foreground and the superb sense of movement along the street. The evening mood has been captured very effectively too. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,

Wonderful scene of daily life, and your note adds so much. Really excellent photo documentary, and the description of the delights here has made hungry! I have never had milkshakes art breakfast.
All the best

I sort of vaguely remember going inside this building. From this angle it looks cramped but once you are inside it opens up and there is plenty of space inside. And yes the breakfasts, cakes, and fresh bread were great! Or am I thinking of Glenealy? I even had a cold beer on the terrace! Good daily life scene in the street outside with excellent sharpness and nicely managed perspective. Tfs!

ciao caro amico indiano
un altra del tuo bellissime immagine di vita quotidiana in india
molto interessanti in questo mercato e un ottimo documento dai bellissimi colori

An excellent street scene with the restaurant as a center piece. Well saturated colors and good, sharp details.

Sorry for being late, Farhat.
That small restaurant with window service appears quite sympathic by its exotic shape and color and most convenient to nearby shoppers!
You show a colourful scenery despite shaded sun and the " flavoured local thruth" of a flea market.

Great Street scene of this famous place Fabbs!
