The Darjeeling is the new food hub of Mumbai located at Lokhandwala, Andheri next to Oh! Calcutta. As the name suggests, the joint brings down a piece of the hills with it. They serve amazing momos and thukpas, which are a must try. They offer Tibetan, Nepalese, Bhutanese and Chinese delicacies, so feel free to gorge on it all, especially since every item on the menu is pocket-friendly. A plate of chicken steamed momos will cost you INR 120, while the veg steamed momos are priced at INR 90. The thukpas range between INR 90 to INR 160. They offer pan fried momos too, and if you’re a spicy food eater, do try the kothay momos. And after you’re done eating everything you wish to, don’t forget to have a cup of the amazing Darjeeling tea.

Anything Else?

Students will love this place because of the prices. People who likes trying new cuisines will like it too as they as a vast menu for north eastern and Tibetan delicacies. It’s a nice, small place with good music playing and the staff is friendly and helpful too. This restaurant has a branch in Kolkata which is pretty amazing, and they;ve maintained the standards over here as well.

So, We’re Saying…

We love this quaint eatery and so will you, so go here the next time you crave some hot momos or simply feel like sipping some garam chai.
