“Good Food small place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2012

The food is really nice as always, but the space is too crammed. Its time to get a bigger place. Or order for a takeaway.

“Tiny Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2011

We had just arrived in Darjeeling and had not eaten lunch so we were hungry and did not have any idea where to go. We stopped in Dekevas on a whim. I was good choice. The restaurant is very small 10 people and it would be crowded, but it is quite a pleasent place. The waiter was very nice and since we were the only patrons at the time he was quite attentive. We ordered rice, fried momos, and chili chicken (excellent). The food came to the table hot and really hit ht spot. I would definately eat there again.

“Okay food, but service was unfair”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2011

The food here is filling and fresh, however our second visit was incredibly disappointing after our order was clearly messed up by the staff, not replaced and then cheekily charged for. Remember to repeat your order and point to the menu when your choice isn't available.

“The thentuk and the momos are delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 16, 2010

Small, cosy and friendly restaurant. A big bowl of their delicious thentuk and a plate of hot momos are just thing to warm you up in winter.

“Excellent”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2010

Tasty, authentic and excellent value food. Only downside was that, because the kitchen is just behind the counter, the room became quite smokey and smelly from the wok cooking. Not the place to go if this will annoy you. Otherwise food really tasty and worth waiting the 50 mins we had to wait (restaurant was not even full but they seem to cook everything from scratch). Do not sell alcohol unfortunately.
