Kunga was one of the best meals I ate in Darjeeling (and India altogether!). I loved the Tibetan flavors. The soup was amazing, the Egg Rolls were bigger than my head (and delicious), the noodles were perfect.

It was the first time I had tried tibetan cuisine and liked it. The prices are reasonable and the staff helpful in making choices. Liked it on the whole.

My trip to darjeeling is incomplete without kunal. One of the authentic place with wooden interiors adds spice to it. It's a family run restaurant and everybody makes you feel like home. Kudos

This is a great restaurant where we ate delicious Tibetan food. The staff is nice. I reccommend the thenthuk soup, the butter tea and the lemon lassi. The chilli chicken is really strong.

Kunga restaurant is one of the best Restaurant in Darjeeling. The service was quick, and we had the best meal in Darjeeling here. The momos and noodles were delicious and we left feeling satisfied but not stuffed. Very good value for money, I would highly recommend it!

Steaming momos, suja (butter tea), glass noodles and more was some of the dishes that I had on my visit to this modest restaurant that serves really amazing food. I loved the Phing (glass noodles) with veggies...Must visit place

I have been to Kunga many times in last three years. I don't want to repeat what others have been saying. Just to add my two cents: they know how to best treat their customers.

This place is near to Mall road and beside taxi stand. Its better to go before 1PM for lunch and before 7PM for dinner to avoid crowd. Foods are very good in taste specifically pork momos. Also try lemon tea with honey.
