Description:

The soul of this sharp-looking and fragrant spot lies in the Himalayas, where the Nepalese food is compellingly rustic and Chinese influences blend into Indian flavors. Well-seasoned chicken momos (steamed dumplings) are a must, savory with tomato-cashew sauce, as is the robust boneless goat meat, given a zesty Nepalese turn in the tandoor oven. Traditional Indian dishes also delight, from chicken tikka masala to lamb Madras in coconut-curry sauce. The signature dum biryani is opulent with spice-marinated chicken, lamb, and shrimp in basmati rice. Good cocktails and wines.
