Ten-Second Takeaway

On reader request and some outrage, when we published a review of Tibetan Mother’s Kitchen last week, we were told that Khawa Kharpo, another Tibetan restaurant in the neighbourhood needs to be given some recognition too. So, here we go. A popular college hangout spot, Khawa Kharpo promises meaty momos, Tibetan specials and great value-for-money.

Chow Down

Crispy Chilli Chicken, Fried Beef Momos

Sip On

Only aerated drinks are available. You will need a couple to deal with the spicy food here.

Winning For

Generous portions, affordability, and a vast menu gets three thumbs ups from us.

Lowdown On The Ambience

Khawa Kharpo is tucked away in a side street {opposite Jyoti Nivas College} and has a humble setting in a tiny space. Although it limits the service, there are no discomforts that you can possibly complain about in this restaurant. Sometimes you may have to wait for a seat, but the wait is well worth it. There is nothing endearing about the ambience here. The food here is the main focus, and looking at the loyal customers {including us} who turn up regularly here, we don’t really care about the ambience.

What’s On The Menu

Have a go here first at the Tibetan specials such as Lhaping {a spicy noodle dish}, Chicken Shebaklep {an appetiser}, Tingmo {soft steamed Tibetan buns} and a selection of Mo-Thuks {momos cooked in a special soup} to popular Chinese offerings {chopsuey, noodles and fried rice}. Try their moreish Crispy Chilly Chicken or their Fried Beef Momos, succulent and soft meat inside a golden fried crust. The crisp Honey Chilli Potatoes are top draws here too, just like the nearby Tibetan Mother’s Kitchen.

So, We’re Thinking

Wholesome Tibetan and Chinese fare, light on the pocket and big on taste. What more could we possibly ask for?
