This little mom and pop was our favorite restaurant in Darjeeling. Friendly service and no frills Tibetan menu allow the freshly made noodles and momos to shine. Where so many places in Darjeeling cheapen themselves for the tourists, Kunga rings authentic goodness, and made us tourists feel very comfortable to boot.

When in Darjeeling, this should be a must visit on a traveller's list. They serve excellent Tibetan delicacies like Thukpa and Momos. The best part is the food served is fresh as they are open till their stock last. We had been trying to have dinner for the past two days, but at 8pm they close as their food gets... More

This authentic, small, Tibetian resturaunt was definately one of the best ones we came across in India! During an extreme rainstorm outside, we were having the most delicious, hot, homemade Thenthuck soup. It was absolutely great! Don't leave Darjeeling without eating at Kunga's resturaunt!

Stopped here based on others reviews, and was not disappointed! The staff were friendly and made several recommendations, but I'd say the momo's were the best. We tested the fried chicken and cheese... while maybe not a traditional combination, they were excellent. Additionally, we had the Thukpa (Nepalese Chicken Noodle soup) that was really excellent and fresh. I would highly... More
