The test of a good nepalese restaurant is it’s momos and Chomolungma has the best momos I’ve tasted outside of Kathmandu. They come with a delicious tomato and sesame chutney and a tasty clear soup.
Recently opened Chomolungma in Manuka, fills the spot left by the Himalayan Restaurant in Palmerston Lane.
Chomolungma’s menu is short and focuses on a thali style meal with variations. But boy is it good.The Nepali spiced gravy is absolutley delicious and the dahl smoky and flavoursome. The sides include a crunchy vegetable mixture that provides a great texture contrast and a dahl that is smoky and flavoursome.
The roti $3 is an essential addition.
The service is very friendly, warm, welcoming and efficient.
Three people could share 1 serve of momos, two main thali meals and two roti.
It is the type of meal that is memorable and makes you look forward to going back to have the same meal again…even the next day.
ten chicken momos $12 (excellent) with a tasty clear soup
khassi ko masu $18 – braised goat meat (on the bone) with a nepali spiced gravy, rice, dahl, sautéed spinach, mango pickle and crunchy vegetable side
pappdoms are complementary and corkage for BYO wine is $2 per person.
Desserts include a hot millet pancake served with banana, strawberry and honey $9 and ice-cream with a trio of toppings mango, berries and chocolate $6.
The pork momos and the chicken thali style meal (Kuyhurako Masu $15) are well worth a try.
