Made a brief visit to Thamel and decided we needed some Mo-mos. After asking some of the local proprietors, we found ourselves here and weren't disappointed. Good food, good service and inexpensive.

On our last night in Nepal my daughter and I went here for a meal. The food is absolutely delicious and it is great value. The tongba (Tibetan hot millet beer) is something of an acquired taste but I am glad I gave it a...More
