“MoMos - the best in Thamel”
Reviewed June 23, 2014

On my first visit to Nepal I had MoMos at another Restaurant in Thamel as they were recommended as 'the must try' delicacy of Nepal and they were terrible and I vowed not to eat MoMos again.

However my arm was twisted to give MoMos 'one more go' at the MoMo Hut - what a pleasant surprise. Great variety, good service, DELICIOUS and well priced.

Went back a second and third time....................that says it all!

If you don't go to the MoMo Hut you are missing out on a great food experience.

“Awesome Momos!! Awesome server!!”
Reviewed June 17, 2014 via mobile

We got tipped off by our trekking company to come stop by the momo hut for lunch, but my hopes weren't really high since they also owned the place. Luckily for us, these bad boys are super dank! We went twice and one day and got the special mix veg and non veg plates both times (~600 rps). Sure, you can get a lot of good Momos in town but you won't go wrong coming here. I don't know what people are talking about bad service: after 5 months of traveling in Asia, our server Sushila was the best we had in that time! She was very friendly, refilled our glasses 125 times, and always smiling. Very clean (which is appreciated after 18 days trekking). Free wifi. Free mineral water. Only minuses are that is a tad more expensive than others and the milkshakes was not impressive after having the best ones ever in Pokhara.

“Good food”
Reviewed June 14, 2014

Good choice of momos, moderately priced. Prices in menu does not include service tax, but a pretty good place to have a bite after spending time shopping

“Food is good, 10%+13% service charge and tip excluded”
Reviewed June 10, 2014

The momos are well prepared and tasty. However, the venue is quite expensive, though this is what you can expect when you dine in Thamel. I paid 200RPS for chicken momos (including service charge + tax which is not included in the price. I don't like this kind of pricing), whilst in other areas you can get the same for 120.

The staff is friendly and they provide you with WiFi

“Very good food, excellent service!”
Reviewed June 5, 2014

I decided to try Momo Hut because I had recently discovered Nepalese momo and wanted to try some different places. As in most places I have gone to in Kathmandu, everyone was friendly, but I really felt especially welcome here. I have been back every day for the past few days and Sushila always greets me with a warm smile and they know my order already.

Today, there was nobody but me in the restaurant and Sushila and a couple of the other waiters went out of their way to say hello and express an interest in me. I really felt very welcome and wish I could go there every day.

As for the food, it is excellent momo. I have tried the steamed and fried chicken momo and the steamed buffalo momo. The prices are pretty much on par with other momo places (maybe 10-20 Rs more expensive than the momo place down the street from my hotel), but the food is excellent and the service made the extra $0.25 US well worth it!

Oh, and it has a really nice view of the street below, so, if you don't want to chat with the staff, there is plenty to keep you entertained while you eat.

Incidentally, I just saw another review saying that it is a bit expensive compared to KFC and other fast food joints. I just had a plate of 10 momo and two bottles of Coke for 350 Rs total (including tax and service charge). My meal at KFC was 750 Rs and it was not nearly as good as Momo Hut. The only thing KFC has on Momo Hut is air conditioning. That is so not worth double the price. I think Momo Hut is a great value!
