The soups are REALLY good!

We tried the soup options out here for lunch and really liked them. The chicken thengun was particularly great, and we forget the other soup but it was a bit spicier and had thinner noodles. The portions were huge! We left full and ready to tackle the rest of our day.

A small restuarant with 10 or so tables - they serve awesome tibetan food. Try Chicken Talomein soup and chicken Yenmug and veg thenthuk. They prepare awesome pork dishes.. Its located in the building diagonally opposite to Keventers .. the building which also houses the Dekelling hotel. Had lunch every day there in our last trip

This place is sadly underrated. It's wonderful! My number one dish that I enjoyed immensely was the simple vegetable Thenthuk - really great stuff! There were no Momos when we were there, but I would recommend going next door to Kunga's for that. For everything else - give this place a go. The staff were polite and very hospitable. Have...

I love this place. It's cheap, quick, friendly and fun but on our last visit to Darjeeling we were twice turned away because they'd 'run out of food' and once were only allowed in because we wanted momos and that was all they had left. But I still keep going back because the momos and the ginger honey lemon tea... More

Nothing can be more terrible than getting bones in not only your first bite but subsequently even in the next momo you bite into....its not a mistake but simply shabby careless cooking

Loved the Tibetian style Thugpa . Food was lovely. But you have to look and write down what you want before the waiter collects it!!
