Advice: No reservations, walkins welcome.
Specializing in Nepalese and Indo-Chinese dishes, the focus here is on their made in house momos (aka dumplings). The restaurant is located in the multi-cultural melting pot of Fraser Street where the street is now full of many different types of Asian restaurants. I love how exquisite their momos are and they offer them in a variety of different styles from steamed to fried with various different sauces and heat levels.
The Butter Chicken steamed momos with a delicious butter chicken curry on top is one of my favourites
The Crispy Kurkure Chicken Momos is a unique dish with a coated and breaded mixture that is fried and filled with minced chicken and very tasty; and you can dip it in one of the two complimentary house-made sauces. I also loved the Jhol Momos vegetarian steamed in a delicious curry.
For a non-dumpling dish the Chicken Sekuwa with puffed rice is a unique Nepalese dish with grilled chicken skewers (served off the skewer) with pickled daikon to clean the palate.
They have a selection of breads on the menu as well, my go to was the Roti to mop up the leftover curry.
The Chilly Fish is both spicy and sweet with onions and peppers and it is a great one to share.
This is a neighborhood gem worthy of your patronage and this is a great spot to take your family or friends to explore some Nepalese dishes as well as their momos.
