Kunga Restaurant in Darjeeling

Look up “Best Restaurants in Darjeeling” and Kunga Restaurant is consistently on the list – justifiably so. Kunga Restaurant is owned by a local Tibetan family and specializes in Tibetan food. Choose anything from the extensive menu and you will be pleasantly satisfied. Try the momo’s, thukpa, thenthuk, and much more, each with a half dozen varieties. The portion sizes are huge and the prices are comparatively cheap. The only bad thing there is to say about Kunga is that the restaurant only seats about 20 people, though that is not necessarily a bad thing. You can also see the chefs cooking in the kitchen. The small seating area and open kitchen give the place a casual, laidback vibe. During the meal hours, the small restaurant is always packed, so try and get there early. It is not only popular among tourists, but also locals – a sign of authentic cuisine.Kunga Restaurantis conveniently located at the bottom of Nehru Road by the taxi stand. It should be at the top of your list for your visit to Darjeeling.
