The food should have #1 status on Tripadvisor from our experience. Delicious food. Delightful staff and clean toilet. Of our trip round India this was our best meal so far. Top marks and hopefully they will go up on the ratings as they deserve to!!!

Found this restaurant while we were looking for another. Glad we chose this option. It is a very small restaurant and the food is very very tasty. It's a must try if your in the area. I had the Singaporean fried rice with the sweet and sour chicken and vegi hakka noodles.

Well nobody serves you better than the places run by a family for the love of food. This indeed is like eating at a local's house except that you pay for it. It indeed is a lovely place to go and enjoy your local cuisines. The food is well cooked not just with right ingredients but also with love .... More

Situated below the well-known Dekeling hotel. This is a small hotel offering tibetan food. We had steamed momos, chicken thukpa, rice and mixed veg curry. All of them were well made and tasty. Portions quite large specially the thukpa, which alone can be a filling lunch. Overall cleanliness of the place can be better though. Visited for lunch in October,... More

By chance i found this little restaurant. It was newly renovated and had a good deal of atmosphere. I loved it. Try the dragon chicken as starter and then go with one of the noodle soups. To drink i can recommend the lemon/ginger tea.

Dekevas is a small, friendly restaurant serving Tibetan/Indian/Chinese food at very good prices. You will need to write your order down on the notepad provided and the service is quick and efficient. Momos come in a very large portion so one will do for two people unless you are really hungry. Oddly, in Dekevas, the momos come with a thin,... More

We ended up going here because Kunga was closed and we absolutely loved this place. The Tibetan bread was nice and fluffy and it went well with the soup .They had ran out of chicken momos so we ordered the Thenthug ..not sure if I got the spelling right but really awesome dish.It was fulfilling and tasty like soul food...

Great find right here, tried it out as other places were packed. This place offers fantastic Tibetan food. Home made flat noodles in veg broth was so nice, I could live off that dish. Also very fair price range for a hotel restaurant.

This is a small but cute restaurant where you can get tasty momos. Near the chowrasta all other momo shops were small road side shops which were not clean. This is a place where you can again and again have all local specials at cheap price and in a neat atmosphere. This has limited seats. Do not miss this if... More
