Scale the heights of the Himalayas without leaving the country. Himalayan Nepalese Restaurant and Cafe introduces the unique tastes of this magnificent region in 3 handy locations – Inglewood, Vic Park and Mosman Park. Enjoy the finest Nepalese cuisine in a relaxed and friendly environment.
The Nepalese people are descendants of major migrations from India, Tibet, North Burma and Yunnan and the cuisine reflects this rich cultural diversity. It draws on the great culinary traditions of China and India to create unique dishes and tantalising flavours. It is healthy, fresh and delicious!
The menu contains a mouthwatering mix of chicken, beef, goat and fish curry-style dishes that range. There’s plenty of choice if you prefer just a touch of spice, such as machha tareko – pan fried marinated fish fillets and kasha sa raga – boneless lamb cooked in a mild thick sauce. And if you like your curry with a kick, the fiery flavours of Himalayan hot lamb will hit the spot. Chara ko sekuwa is the house specialty – tender pieces of chicken marinated in a spiced yogurt, slow cooked in the Tandoor oven. It is exceptional.
Starters include chicken momo – divine little melt-in-the-mouth dumplings. They are a must – if you haven’t tried them before.
“Momo is the Nepalese equivalent of steamed dim sum: tender meat encased in a delicate dough. They’re slightly spicier than their oriental cousins, garnished with ginger, garlic and coriander,” explains owner Bhairab. Vegetarians are well catered for, with a tempting array of non-meat options and the kids will be kept happy with yummy butter chicken.
Great dishes, modest prices and good service, take a trip to the Himalayas soon!
