This small restaurant has some of the best Nepalese and Northern Chinese food I've ever tasted. The Rainbow salad is a must! The Mongolian beef and orange chicken are succulent and ever so tasty. Paired with a bottle of Honda Pinot, this is a meal...More

We've eaten at Mingalaba many times and obviously always enjoy there. Most everything is very good, but the only thing I recall specifically to recommend is their delicious Nan Gyi Dok. Wow, they sure make it great.

We enjoyed the delicious green tea leaf salad starter and then went on to the chicken main dishes + desert. If you are in for a Burmese treat - this it it!

People really seem to rave about this restaurant, but we found it to just be average and very pricey. Mango salad is a real treat. I would go back for it alone any time. Better than the typical papaya salad. Also had palata which is...More

Reading the reviews and seeing the menu list and prices made us have some expectations. Lunch was not cheap, service was very pushy and not attentive. Food was average at best, spicy food was more like mild. Overall not a great experience. Still having food...More

One of the benefits of living in this area is the variety of food available. However Mingalaba goes beyond being different because the food is prepared so well. There are a few Chinese stand-by dishes like Kung Pao chicken, Beef Chow Fun, Walnut Prawns ...etc....More

Best Asian food (mango chicken) I have ever had. A+. The wonton soup was also fantastic. They even made my kids General Chicken with grilled meat instead of deep fried. I wish I lived out there.

I think they're $8 to $12 per dish, pretty generous which encourages sharing.

I would think so as I believe rice is gluten free, and they use chickpea flour in their falafel ball soup. You'd have to check ~ Usually asian food is fairly easily navigated ~
