Hot Stimulating Cafe

Reviewed By JAIDEEP_BANERJEE - Singapore, Singapore

I have visited this small joint on the way to the Zoo umpteen times , reviewed earlier also , now reviewing again as the joint has come up with a new look with an open balcony and an open kitchen.. I believe this joint may provide an alternative to Keventers / Glenaries in the coming days..
1) Now you can enjoy the view better from the balcony with your food.
2) The main restaurant also bears more contemporary look , although some may miss the old Bob Dilan kinda look..
3) As I mentioned earlier also, this joint is not for foodies , so don't expect a lot of choices n highest quality in food... What makes the difference is the ambiance...

Kunga Restaurant

Reviewed By Abbijoe - Rotherham UK

This is a fairly small, informal type restaurant that was extremely busy every time we walked past (which was numerous) and when it was full they just put the 'Closed' sign on the door
The occasion we ate there we were lucky enough that someone was just leaving.
We had pork momo's, vegetable momo's and their noodle soup. Good tasty food, and very filling.
Pity TA overall rating doesn't have a 'good', as our experience although not very good was certainly not average.
Give this place a go (if you can get in!!)

The Darjeeling Tourism site recommended this restaurant and so we went there for dinner. The manager recommended Chicken Dimsums as starters. Nicely served and tasty too. We also had Indian food (butter chicken, dal makhani & Naan) which was also well-prepared. Good dining experience and light on the pocket too.

This is cheap and tasty restaurant, you can have a traditional Indian food.
Customer service is not the best, but they are not rude. It is just they way of serving people.
Foreigners can find this place as a not really clean, but food is safe and we never had any stomach problems.
