Nepalese food is good. It is not like Indian food, though it may seem to be a trifle strange. I would recommend the lassi, which is a yoghurt drink and the momos, which are similar to Chinese dumplings. Nepal is sandwiched between India and China,...More

Gurkha's Cafe serves Nepali food. I have been here several times and I liked it, but I am not head over heels in love with Nepali food. The meal is filling and the charges are moderate, but not cheap. There are several Nepali restaurants around...More
