Outstanding food, the best we had in Darjeeling. And arguably the best momos I've had... anywhere. Wonderful people too; my wife had dropped her phone there, got a call a week later about them finding it. They couriered it to us as well, which took some doing as not all companies accept phone... read more

It's a small joint but let me tell you, the food you get here is amazing. Freshly made to order. My and my wife love the food here so much that we needed up eating twice in our 3 day Darjeeling trip. Ps-dont miss the pork momo and wai-wai soup here.

Place is crawling with people in queue to get into the restaurant. Great food with a lot of options. If you don't understand the menu the staff will help you out with it. All in all value for money food.

This is 1 place you must eat in, at Darjeeling. Thanks Tripadvisor for your recommendation. 1 thing, their quantities are substantial, so order carefully and then pack up the remainder for home. It's absolutely worth it.

Must visit once during your stay at Darjeeling, Excellent Thukpa and Chowmein The Shabalay was underwhelming as the stuffing was bland The lady who cooks , called Aunty by everyone is very pleasant and forver smiling A sweet little place that exudes warmth. They shut early , so get there before 7:30 p.m. in case you plan to go for... More

Cosy, friendly atmosphere. Prompt friendly service, good value, and nice food. We particularly liked their mo mo's, and the chicken dishes were succulent and fresh, unlike the dry offerings we have experienced elsewhere in town.

Nice little restaurant, food was good and served quickly. Not the cheapest, but only reason didn't get 5 stars is because they have stuck the arbitrary 14.5% 'VAT' on top of menu prices. Pretty sure this is a made up tax as there's no consistency between restaurants (and if its a genuine tax it should be included in the stated... More

The food-joint has received trip advisor excellence award thrice in a row, and after looking at the menu one would guess why! They serve a variety of tibetian and Chinese delicacies at good price. They always try to be as authentic as possible. The hairstyle of the boys working there was also very cool and funky. One should try the... More

The restaurant is pretty small, but cosy. It is run by a Tibetan family. The Tibetan food is excellent The momos are delicious, big and generously stuffed. The other dishes made of noodles are also very generous and flavour-rich. The service is responsive and very friendly. The prices are rather cheap.
