Best Thakali Restaurants in Kathmandu

In recent years, Thakali Khana is becoming popular in Kathmandu, and many Thakali restaurants are mushrooming in the city.

If you are wondering where to go, here is the list of best restaurants serving delicious authentic Thakali taste. One easy way to find whether the Thakali Khana they serve is authentic or not is by checking the daal, which is central to the flavor of the whole dish.

Daal must be prepared either from black lentils or locally grown beans from Mustang, and with ghee-jimbu tempering (jhanne). Instead of rice, you may also like to try buckwheat dhido (porridge-like) in Thakali Khana set. Also try other varieties of Thakali cuisines such as Kanchemba (buckwheat fries), Mustang ko Aalu (fried potato from Mustang), Sukuti (dried meat) etc. in these restaurants.

Lete Thakali Kitchen, Tangal (Rating: 9/10)

Tangal has been growing as food hub including for Thakali cuisine. ‘Lete Thakali Kitchen’ is one of the first serving authentic Thakali cuisines in the area and named after a small Thakali village in Mustang. Their potato and vegetable curry cooked in jimbu and the gundruk ko achhar are my favorites in the Thakali khana set. They also serve mula thepe achaar (minced radish achaar)- one of the traditional Thakali dishes, as a side relish. The owner Munna Gauchan was kind enough for talking to me about the traditional Thakali food culture, ingredients, and recipes.

Nilgiri Thakali Delights, Tangal (Rating: 9.5/10)

Operated by renowned chef Shambhu Basnet, which has over 15 years of experience in Thakali cuisine, Nilgiri Thakali Delights is the highly recommended place to go for Thakali Khana set. It has the best Daal that I have ever tasted- perfectly balanced, thick, creamy and flavorful.

The restaurant is totally dedicated to Thakali cuisines with varieties of traditional Thakali foods that you have probably never heard or tried before. It is comparatively little pricier than other regular Thakali restaurants though, but worth it.
