They're a cosy restaurant offering nice selection of sikkimese cuisine and bar. It is a lovely place with nice artefacts and a terrace seating option too. Do try the veg thali including a kind of saag which is very flavourful. You'd appreciate the unique flavours...of the food. There is a small section selling squashes and jams on the ground floor. Do try the passion fruit squash. Visit with your partner.More

Location is a cosy little square away from all the hustle and bustle. Decor is pleasant with good music, and roof terrace spacious and minimal. Menu offers a good variety at very reasonable prices, alcohol is served, very good local red wine and again very...reasonable. We ordered 2 portions of momo buns (steamed dumplings) and Fish from the Asian starters, followed by stir fried burnt garlic veg, finished with home style chicken curry and steamed rice. Everything was freshly prepared and delicious. This restaurant would do very well in its current form back home in Manchester UK Downstairs is a fresh bakery that also sells a great range of organic fresh and packet ingredientsMore

If a quite meal is on your mind, and eastern Himalayan food you are craving for, look no further and head to this place tucked in a corner in GK 1. The place may need a bit of a hunt but till be worth it....Nice and friendly staff and food is good. Besides regular Sikkim dishes you have some Nepalese ones too. Prices were good, I would recommend this place for a casual drop by kind of venue.More

I was in Delhi for work but had agreed to have dinner with my daughter on the last evening. She suggested this place where I hadn’t been before. It’s a Sikkimese restaurant which is quite unusual. They also serve a few Nepali, Tibetan and Thai...dishes. We were there early evening so it wasn’t busy. The service was friendly and they were helpful in guiding us on what to eat. The food was very tasty and the overall experience was great. Would definitely recommend this place if you want to try something different.More

I had been eyeing this restaurant for months, and I am glad to say that it lived up to my expectations. I sat on the top floor, and we were lucky that the weather was superb! We had chicken choila, buckwheat momos and the Thali....They serve Sikkimese food The servings are good The flavour of the food is fantastic. I need to go back for the thupka and the other noodle broth!More

Nimtho, I thought, was about Sikkimese food. At least that's what thought until I landed up there. It turned out that they serve Himalayan (Sikkimese, Nepali) and other Asian dishes too. This review is based on two visits, and having tried dishes recommended by bloggers...on various platforms. The place is clean, and has a well-worn feel, with basic but comfortable seating. They have indoor and terrace seating, but the terrace seating can get dusty, so I'd avoid it if you're fussy about the 'atmosphere' not getting into your food! The staff is courteous, efficient, and knows the food, so feel free to ask what the dish has in it and what it goes well with. On my first visit, I tried their signature "buckwheat momos" which were quite delicious, and the clear soup that came with them helped wash them down quite nicely. I also had their Nepali Pork Tareko, which was tasty, but a little extra salty for my liking. It was good to try once, not sure I'll have it again. On my most recent visit, I tried their Crispy Fried Nepali Chicken, the Thenthuk soup, and the Sikkimese Thali, all of which turned out to be great. The chicken was succulent and beautifully spiced, but the best part is the accompanying red chilly sauce, which I discovered was red from the chilies, not tomatoes! The Thenthuk soup is a great alternate to Thukpa, and is becoming my favourite soup meal in winter. The Sikkimese pork thali had servings of rice, some sort of curry, potatoes, and boiled ferns, accompanied with some crispy fried veggies, salad, and papad. I didn't much care for the potatoes or the curry, but the pork and the ferns were delicious, as were the salads and rice. The overall experience is pleasant, the staff doesn't rush you, and you can spend time and seriously enjoy the food here. I didn't try too many dishes, but since I was aiming for Sikkimese cuisine, the max I would experiment here would be with neighbouring Nepali food. And my guess is, that the Sikkim and Nepal dishes would be the best dishes on their menu.More

An authentic Nepali & Sikkimese food restaurant, preparing delicious highland dishes. It's a hidden gem waiting to be explored. We tried the Nepali and Sikkim thali , both of which were pretty good. The fish in the Sikkim thali was delectable. The mutton in the...Nepali thali was good too, though a trite tough. Accompanying dishes of saag , Gundruk , dal and Tirmur chutney were just perfect. . The restaurant is located on the 1st floor. The ground floor has a Store selling Organic food from Sikkim which in itself is an serendipitous find. You can pick up some 'Dallo Ko achaar' from here. It's pungency is enough to launch you into space without a rocket. :-) Will definitely go back to sample more of the menu in my next visit.More
