Great Momo

Popular with the locals and taxi drivers. Great Momo and you can watch pops cooking the food to order. Very fresh.

You cannot visit Darjeeling and not eat at Kunga (level to the parking at Clubside). The food is delicious and the portions generous. I have the best momos I 've had in a very very long time. Do reach starving :-) Friendly staff, may be frowning occasionally, but always breaking into smiles.

Fresh and tasty breakfast. The service was quick. The food variety is good. The place is very small and very tight area. Little difficult move around if full packed.

A small family run Tibetan restaurant. Small but cozy,clean and warming restaurant make you feel you are not a tourist. They serve the best pork friend momo and sweet lassi. Strongly recommend their fried momo and sweet lassi. However the Thukpa's portion is quite large for a female and quite oily. Staying at Darjeeling for only 3 days 2 night,... More

I am a regular to Kunga whenever I visit Darjeeling. It has one of the best foods that Darjeeling has to offer. I have had the best momo of my life at Kunga.

I liked the simplicity of the place. Small joint run by family members. In peak time you might have to wait for your turn, but that's worth it.
