The owners are Nepali and the food is very similar to Indian cuisine. The cooking is very homey and the prices are quite reasonable for such a prime location. Lunch will cost around $8. Try one of their amazing chai teas. They grind their own spices and mix up one heck of a good cup. There are 7 or 8 varieties. Voted best chai tea by City Pages. Vegetarian and vegan friendly.
