The top 5 Nepalese restaurants in Toronto

Nepalese cuisine in Toronto often shares the spotlight with dishes from Tibet and Northern India. But restaurants that truly represent the region can be found slinging more than just momos; these places offer thali combos, sekuwa kebabs, choila chicken and more.

Here's where to eat Nepalese food in Toronto.

Karma's Kitchen
This restaurant in the heart of Little India serves a lunch time buffet as well as a la carte menu featuring soups, curries and chow mien. Get the Nepali thali combo for an assortment of tastes, or opt for the momos smothered in jhol (a rich gravy).

Kathmandu
The Yorkville restaurant dishes out Nepalese and Indian specialties including curries, tandoori dishes and an AYCE buffet at lunch. House favourites include the sekuwa, skewered morsels of goat or chicken marinated in curried yogurt curry and fired in a charcoal oven, as well as steamed momos stuffed with chicken, fresh coriander and ginger.

Himalayan Kitchen
Himalayan thali combos are the thing to get at this kitchen in Parkdale. Each platter is packed with rice, dal, seasoned vegetables, potatoes and pickles and served with a choice of chickpeas, chicken, or mutton.

Mt. Everest Restaurant
The charming dining room on Eglinton Avenue West is adorned with oil paintings from Nepalese artists. The menu delves into Royal Indian and Nepali cuisines offering dishes like khasi ko maasu (goat curry) along with an abundance of vegetarian dishes including jhane ko dal (stewed lentils), palungo ko saag (spinach with chopped tomatoes and ginger, and bhuteko cauli (cauliflower with a blend of spices).

Gorkha Palace
For Newari-style specialties, head just outside the 416 to Mississauga where choila chicken and mutton are on the menu and can be had in khaja combos packed with beaten rice, bhatmas sadeko (soybean salad), aloo dum (potatoes in gravy), pickles, and aloo tama (potato and bamboo shoot) soup.
