Little Nepal -- report

Nancy Berry | Jul 4, 2003 12:55 PM

My husband and I ate at Little Nepal last night and had a wonderful time. The owners are so nice and the waitstaff are so polite and attentive that it we would have been pretty happy had the food not been so good. But the food was excellent, so we left both happy and satisfied.

We both ordered the complete meal as opposed to a la carte selections. This means that in addition to the entree, we each received 3 pieces of naan, a small dish of daal, a delicious curried vegetable (potato, cauliflower, zucchini) dish and a large mound of perfectly cooked spiced (with cardamom and other spices) basmati rice and some creamy chili-sesame chutney. We also ordered an appetizer called momo. These were steamed dumplings shaped like potstickers (but with thicker wrappers) and filled with ground pork and herbs. They were served with the chili-sesame chutney -- really good.

We each ordered a different entree and shared (of course.) The tandoori chicken curry (called Kukhurako Ledo) was absolutely delicious, the chicken extremely tender and the sauce a bit spicy and tart -- excellent with the rice. The tandoori lamb was superb!! It was cooked medium rare and the flavor of the marinade was fabulous. It was delicious eaten with the chutney and the naan.

We didn't order dessert, but a small dish of grapes and a naval orange quarter was served to each of us at the end of the meal.

By the way, we had a long talk with the owners and they are looking forward to the Chowhound dinner there. They were very interested in how we found out about the place. And, also, they own the Pizza Express pizza place next door -- good pizza -- it's easy to see why the naan was so good.
