A Chicago Restaurant Where Indian and Chinese Influences Meet
NOVEMBER 26, 2019 There are a number of restaurants in Chicago that are supposedly Nepali, but almost none of them serve much food that actually comes from the mountainous, landlocked country northeast of India. Instead, most offer a wide range of what most Westerners know as Indian dishes—butter chicken, curries, naan—with only a few options from Nepal itself.
We Believe In Serving the Best Authentic Himalayan Food
We use fresh ingredients to make our food taste the best. Our experienced chefs believe in making customers happy by making the most delicious food with a quality of service that exceeds your expectations on every visit.
The restaurant is the brainchild of four like-minded people from Nepal with over two decades of experience in food service and hospitality industry. In 2016 Raj Thapa, Bhim Rai, Gopal GC and Bidur Kafle met in a cafe in downtown Chicago and conceptualized a plan to establish a restaurant that serves authentic Himalayan and Indian delicacies. The restaurant was formally open to customers on Monday, July 1, 2019.
Our chefs believe that to create great food they need to use great ingredient, therefore, using fresh ingredients to prepare our food is our top priority. That’s why we can create delicacies that are of highest quality and satisfies your taste buds every time.
Passion for the craft
Our chef Bhim Rai has 21 years of experience in food business. He is passionate about cooking the most delicious Himalayan delicacies to satisfy diverse taste buds by serving traditional Nepali, Thakali, Newari, Tibetan and Indian delicacies.
