And another one of the few restaurants out there that have cooking from the heart. Ask the owner what he recommends as he has never steered me wrong. Have never had a bad meal here. I try to call in advance as due to the fact that there is so much love put into the food it can take a while and they are very popular. More...

I love this cafe. The food is amazing, the service is superb. My first visit I had the Lamb curry with the dumplings. I ordered it without comment on spice level and it was good. It brought me back to try more. But on the second visit I ordered Lamb Vindaloo and Lamb Chau Chau. I also ordered both 5 out of 5 on the spicy level. I knew I could get extra rice if needed and I like hot food. My meal was delightful! The two meals were so I could split with my husband because the portion size is good. We both enjoyed the flavorings, the spice level, and the service. My third visit I again ordered the Lamb Curry but this time level 5 on hotness. It was so very good. There is something special about the spices used in these dishes which comes out at a higher spice level which doesn't comeout when they are less spicy. But that said, it takes a while to build up the taste buds to accept a hot, spicy dish, so each to their own. The less spicy version was very good. This is a "Go To" cafe for me. I now hope they can offer some gluten free options as I do have a problem with gluten. More...

You definitely gotta go!! I got the lunch special, absolutely delicious. Not only delicious but fairly priced. A perfect place to eat any meal of the day!! I personally love Indian food and I was surprised when I tasted the food as I have eaten at many places serving Indian food and momo's is truly worth coming to. More...

This place has been on my new restaurants list forever and I'm glad I finally went. It's a cute and small hole-in-the-wall esque place. The (I'm assuming manager/owner) greeted me immediately and sat me down and asked if I had been there before.  I said no and he explained the menu to me which was nice.  After Finding out I didn't eat meat he definitely tried to show me all of the veggie options,  It was clear this guy was proud of his restaurant. You're not going to find any entrees under $10 here but the amount of food I got was good And everything I tried was tasty.  The only negative I have is that before I got my food I saw a little girl with a runny nose walk out and washed her hands in the sink next to the sodas which kind of made me lose my appetite a bit but I gained it back once I saw the food in front of me. I'll definitely be returning. More...

Best Indian/Nepalese food I've ever eaten! I cannot say enough about the food. I'm not usually much of a curry lover, but the sweet mild Butter Chicken was just perfect for me. My husband said the Vindaloo chicken was delicious & the Nan bread was the best we've ever eaten. When the owner realized we'd never eaten here before, he helped us choose dishes suited to our taste preferences. Highly Recommend!!! More...

Before I ate any of this great food I heard stories from a friend about how the owner of this cafe would go out of his way to make sure no one who couldn’t afford food didn’t leave hungry, on the right days (obviously). I have heard nothing but good things about the man who owns this spot from multiple folx, I’ve had nothing but good food from here. I’m so glad to spend my money here supporting good people. More...

I had a fantastic experience here. My coworkers and I placed a rather massive and somewhat impromptu order for lunch. I called in before they were open and was pleased they were available so they could be somewhat prepared.I arrived a few minutes early to find the order was almost completely ready. The server (and I think one of the owners) had already labeled each to-go box with its contents and went through, box by box, to confirm that what I had ordered was present and correct. The food was also fantastic. I personally could have used a bit more spicing but, given where we live, I'm not surprised they toned it down a bit. Overall, a great experience and I'll be back!

Our office has a meeting with a Himalayan theme so we had our lunch catered from here. Raj was very easy to work with, even delivered our food all the way to Meridian! This is amazing food, We all LOVED the veggie sauce with cashews! Would recommend to all who are looking for a different kind of food at a great price! Thank you Raj!! More...

Yet again, I drive by this place often and in the past 6 months I made myself go. While my decision to drive by for 5 years without stopping was a bad one, the decision to stop here (finally) was a really, really good one!Like clock work, right when we walk in we are always greeted by a gentleman (maybe the owner, he is there every time we visit). He is always excited to see us and is prompt with menus, drinks, and to take our order. The thing I really appreciate is his suggestions. He has never been wrong. I also love their combos because you get to try a lot of different things in one meal. I highly suggest doing a combo until you find your favorite and then when you find your favorite, order always! That is my rule-of-thumb. I can tell you everything that I have eaten but you can't really go wrong. I haven't found one thing I did not like. I think it just depends on what you are feeling. Noodles, curry, spicy, savory, sweet, filling, unique. Yes, get it all. I have never been here for dinner. My experiences have always been during lunch. The portions are just right and I often still have food to take home for dinner. Cozy space with pictures of Mount Everest and surrounding areas on the walls. Stop driving by and just go! You can thank me that I just found you your new favorite eatery. See you there! More...

I saw the excellent ratings for this small café, and couldn't wait to try their Momo's. I was the only one there when I entered, was greeted and seated immediately by the smiling and friendly host.The menu was extremely informative, with pictures and suggestions for the first time Himalayan food taster. I decided to try the chicken Momos, the onion kulcha, and the vegetable chau chau. The kind server/host/gentleman (owner?) suggested I try the chicken chau chau instead because it contained the same vegetables plus chicken. The chicken Momos came out very quickly with a side of sauce (which was tomato-based and had the milder sauce poured and with the hotter sauce in its center). The Momos are very much like Chinese dumplings or potstickers and I am used to a different kind of dipping sauce, but the tomato-based spicy sauce was wonderful with these delicious dumplings.The Onion Kulcha (which is naan bread cooked with onion and cilantro in it) was wonderful! And the Chau Chau, soft fried noodles with veggies and meat, were delicious and very filling.The service was fast and friendly and the food was wonderful!I left sated and happy. More...

Found out about this place because they sell Groupons (highly recommend checking for that because it's a good deal). They have a lunch platter that's $8ish that lets you try a little of everything they serve. Their dumplings are great and their unique Nepalese dish. Do recommend at least trying the yak meat dumplings just for the experience. They were a bit dryer than beef, but with that gamier taste like goat or lamb. Unique and definitely worth a try. The vegetable ones were ok, but I found they were a bit too mushy inside for my tastes. Their curry dishes are amazing. And the Nepalese noodles are my favorite part of the meal, honestly. A different kind of food. Do recommend. More...

The owner (I'm pretty sure) was waiting the tables, recommended amazing food, and was super attentive. It's a simple place which is great, because the focus is on the delicious food. The owner knew about everything he served--when asked about an allergy he knew the answer already. This is the best Indian I've had since I lived on the east coast. The pakora is amazingly delicate, and the momo was really good. The tikka masala was great and the whole experience was awesome. Highly recommend. I'm going to be a regular. ❤️ More...

Food was excellent with plenty of vegan options, and our server (who might have been one of the owners?) had plenty of awesome suggestions for food and appetizers. Wish I had taken pictures but I was starving and the food was so good it disappeared fast. The inside was very clean and fit the Nepalese aesthetic. If you are thinking about trying this place, just go. More...

What a find.  Raj (owner) was super nice.  It was a slow day and I came in for a late lunch.  Suggested the sampler and went out of his way to make me happy.. Food was great. Dumpling sampler, butter chicken and TikiMasala.  Ordered to go for my boyfriend.  He's trying to make it last and we might need to drive back to get more. More...

I couldn't decide if it was 4 or 5 stars but I went with five. I was considering going with 4 because the decor is a bit drab but in the end it adds to the charm. A true mom and pop shop. The owner always greets you and has great recommendations. The food is so great. Some of the best Indian and Himalayan food in the area. I'm not much of a butter chicken fan but I've never had butter chicken This good. The momos are good as well. More...

It was our first time going and it was so good. The chicken tikka masala made me want to lick the bowl clean. My husband had the chicken chau chau and it was equally as delicious. Be sure to also get a chai tea. It was sweetened to my preference and was the best I've had. The service was friendly, helpful and great. The owner can sense when you have questions and was so good at explaining two dishes so that I ended up with more of what I was looking for. I will definitely be going back. More...

Stray from the unknown and try Momo Himalayan food, it's well worth the visit.  Service is excellent! We had never tried this type of cuisine and they offered recommendations of what to try.  Our needs were anticipated and well met and service was prompt.  Food was great.  While I'm not a huge fan of yellow curries, their foods were well seasoned and not overpowering.  The Momo pork dumplings were especially great, with a creamy red sauce for dipping.  The chicken in red curry sauce was ok, but the highlight was the fried noodles with lamb, a mix between Asian and Indian cuisines, it was delicious.  If you're looking for something tasty, yet different from the usual, give this place a try.

This place was so great! The owner was super nice, the restaurant is small but clean and fun, and the food is delicious.We got the samosas, naan, chicken korma, and lamb chau chau.  The naan was a little bland, next time I will try the garlic cilantro. Other than that, everything was perfect! I had never had chicken korma before and I'm so glad I got it, one of the best curries I've eaten. Wish we lived closer, we would get take out all the time. Can't wait to go back and try some other things! More...

I've only been here once, but what a fantastic experience. I tried to go in today around 3:30, not realizing that they close between lunch and dinner, but before I could walk away the owner (I'm assuming) opened the door and told me to come in. He recommended a lamb, noodle, and veggie dish and had it ready for me in 5 minutes. What a total sweetheart. I will most certainly be going back to try more of the fantastic cuisine. More...

This is the best ~Indian in town. Period. Fantastic Butter Chicken, Samosa Chaat.. and of course the Momos. I spent a year in India and I can say that this restaurant isn't losing anything in transit. They didn't Americanize/dial down the flavor. The family is also the nicest you'll ever meet, happy to have you try a little of everything and genuinely excited about the food. I couldn't recommend it more highly! Although I do hope that if they get to be too popular soon they can move to a bigger location More...

This place is delicious! If you're going to get appetizers, don't just get one. The samosas and dumplings are so different but equally as tasty - must try both! My boyfriend and I were super hungry so we also got naan bread and butter chicken to dip it in. By the time our chicken chao chao was there, we were full but it was also too good to just let sit there. Highly recommend this place. Really friendly staff and really great authentic food! Best dumplings in Boise for sure. More...

This was a great little spot. The host was wonderful explaining all the options for the menu combination. I had a variation from the menu with dumplings, noodles and saag paneer (not on the regular choice). I had a hard time choosing between that and the Tikka Masala, so they even brought me a little of that too. The host also noted if anyone in our party wanted something else he would gladly exchange it. He suggested a shared order of Naan and even split it among our party as we were all on separate checks (also no problem). You can't go wrong here. More...

This was a recommendation of a close friend. It's a nice small place for a Max of 35-40 people. The owner Raj is very nice and explains all the items and spice levels as well as regional cuisine. As a starter we had the mixed  Momo with yak, vegetarian, chicken and pork dumplings and a spicy dipping sauce, very tasty. Our main course was lamb vindaloo and lamb chau chau with rice and garlic naan. We ordered spice level 4/5 and was just right for me, perhaps a bit too spicy if you are not used to spicy food. Both lamb dishes were delicious and reminded me of my trip to India. We used up all the naan bread to get the sauce out of the plates. We'll come back for sure. More...

Absolutely loved this place. Was our first try so we had one order of dumplings, one of noodles, and one of curry. Dumplings were superb. Curry was probably the best chicken tikka I've ever had. Noodles were a bit generic but that means you can come here as a family where both the adults and kids can enjoy their meals. The prices were good and the staff were very pleasant to talk to. Highly recommended More...

On a recent trip to Boise we had the good fortune of discovering this gem of a restaurant. If you live in Boise, I'm jealous...we've craved this delicious food multiple times since returning home to Phoenix and are eager to get back in the winter for another round of chana curry, veggie chao chao and the samosa chaat! Two big thumbs up  Go check this place out, Boise!! More...

I ordered take-out from here last night and it was super yummy! I got hit with a craving for something with loads of flavor and a punch of spice - so I started perusing Yelp for some ideas and came across this place that I had bookmarked and decided to give it a go!I called around 7:15 and placed an order for Grilled Chicken Tikka Masala (medium spice) and Naan bread. The gentleman helping me on the phone was very friendly and answered any questions I had and also gave me recommendations when I asked for them. He said that Tikka Masala and Butter Chicken are the two top-sellers there, and seeing as I was in the mood for something a bit more savory than sweet, I went with the Tikka Masala. After placing my order he said the food would be ready in about 25 minutes.I pulled into the parking lot to find this sweet little inconspicuous restaurant, that had it not been for Yelp, I might have passed by. I stepped inside to find a charming, family-owned restaurant with fellow spice and flavor-craving patrons like myself. The gentleman who helped me on the phone was waiting right by the door and greeted me with a smile and recalled my order to me. As he rang me up he said, "First time?" (I'm guessing he's the owner and that he has a great memory of the faces that go in and out of his restaurant.) We chatted a little as he finished wringing me up. The total for my food (with tip) came out to $20.On to the good stuff: The Naan Bread - so yummy! I ate a lot of it alone, without dipping it into any of the Tikka Masala (this was mostly due to the fact that I ate it in my car, but it was delicious by itself nonetheless). I am pretty confident that they make their naan in house. It was slightly charred on the outside, had a buttery taste, and oddly reminded me of a not-sweet pancake. (Strange description that I fear doesn't do this bread justice - but I really enjoyed it!)The Tikka Masala- Oooookay, the sauce is incredible. I ordered mine medium, and this was wonderful. Creamy, savory and spicy with loads of chicken in it, served with a generous portion of rice on the side. The sauce in this dish is the kind that leaves you wanting to lick the bowl clean (not saying I did this, but I sure wanted to). I had a lovely take-out experience and I'm very eager to come back, dine in-house, and try out some new dishes! More...

The best Indian food in the area. The owner is always in the restaurant and loves to sit down and give you recommendations or have a chat. While it may seem like a while on the wall that's how you know it's going to be good. I've never had a bad meal at Momo's! More...

For such an ambitious menu covering Tibetan, Indian, Nepali, and Himalayan food they really deliver.It's great family style, but they also have combo lunches available that I haven't tried.I highly recommend the butter chicken for a spicy, fresh take on this Indian staple and the lamb Chau Chau for something new and delicious.Get samosas and yak momo's for some delicious appetizers.Also if you're hesitant about this new cuisine, let them know it's your first time, they're extremely welcoming and helpful.

Another hidden gem in Boise! My husband and I pass this place everytime we go for our prenatal checkups, and we've only just recently gotten a chance to try it. It doesn't look like much from the street, but looks can certainly be deceiving! We arrived early for lunch on a weekday, so the place was quite empty, but that didn't bother us. Our server (I believe he was the owner, but we were too excited about having found out the gender of our baby to ask him unfortunately) was very attentive and asked us if we had been there before. He made recommendations from the lunch specials menu and left us to decide on our own. I ordered the "A" special, which came with three momo's, chau chau, a curry, and steamed rice. My husband ordered the "B" special, which was a full sized curry, steamed rice, and naan bread. Both orders came correct and were very flavorful. My husband had the chicken tikka masala, which was rich and creamy with a nice undertone of coconut from the milk used. It had a small amount of spice, which my husband thought was perfect. In my special, I had chicken vindaloo, lamb chau chau, and pork momos. The vindaloo was zesty and spicy, very flavorful. The chau chau (completely new dish to me) was very familiar tasting, but also exotic if you can believe that. It had the sweet and salty tones that one might recognize from Chinese noodle dishes, but the frying of the noodles gave it a caramelized bitter flavor that perfectly balanced it. Lastly were the momos. I thought they were delicious, and the vinegared chili sauce that came on top was very nice. Unfortunately, they were also the source of my only complaint: the meat inside was quite dry. I've never had momos before, so it's entirely possible that they are meant to be that way, so I'll reserve judgement until I know otherwise. Personally I would have preferred a more juicy filling. A final note: our server noticed us staring at our ultrasound photos and took the time to ask us about our baby, which we were more than happy to talk about! It was very sweet. All in all, we will most certainly be returning in the future, preferably for dinner so we can try the full menu! More...

Great little place with neat weekday lunch specials. Because of the combos, we got to try a variety of things including momos, lamb noodles, chicken tikka masala, butter chicken, veggie korma, and chicken curry. I wasn't expecting to like the veggie korma (which was recommended by our waiter) but it ended up being my favorite. I will say the dishes were sweeter than than other Indian/Himalayan restaurants and not spicy at all, but the flavors were still excellent. I wish they included more sauce to eat with rice/naan.

What a great experience! My husband and I were in town for a day and found this place based on other Yelp reviews. Boy are we glad that we caught them before they closed. You could tell that the owner is super passionate about his restaurant from the moment you enter the door. He was attentive and super helpful in explaining the menu options to us as newcomers to this cuisine. We had the lunch special containing dumplings, curry (chicken tikka was INCREDIBLE ), lamb noodles, a big bowl of butter chicken (Mercy!) and flatbread (Best ever). The wait was not long considering everything was made fresh for us (after the busy lunch crowd left at 14:00). Once the food was placed on our table the aromatic scent of clarified butter and spice drew us in. Beautiful flavors, good portion sizes and very affordable. The owner is one of those people who picks up on little nuances to see whether you are truly enjoying your meal, and adjusts any and everything to your liking when time allows. I love that, and I love to support passionate people who invest so much time and effort into a great customer experience. Wishing him and his family all the best More...

May I please have your attention? Yes, this was my first time here and yes it was good. I went today for lunch because I was in the area due to a flat tire. At first, I was nervous because no one was there. It's a mom and pop shop, brick and mortar, or whatever phrase you like better. My husband, had been before so he kept reassuring me. I got the lunch special($9.99), creating my own plate type of doing choosing from 3 options. I was familiar with 2 of my options because I had before, but one of them was something different. Well, my iffy option chicken kormua, tasted like heaven. My mouth is watering even now thinking of it.  Do yourself a favor and give it a try. I know I'll be going back on a monthly basis to try the whole menu. More...

There are two reasons why I truly love to dine at Mount Everest Momo Cafe. The first is because whenever I come in the owner Raj treats me like family. There is something so warm and memorable about dining at a place where they greet you like an old friend. I also love that you can tell Raj exactly what kind of food you want. Like, today I want spicy and sweet, or lamb but nothing bitter and he will make you the perfect dish and help you choose appetizers to match. My second reason for loving to dine here is the food! No matter what I have ordered here I have loved it. Today I ordered the momo soup with extra veggie momos and let me tell you, I cannot wait to eat my leftovers tonight! Mount Everest Momo Cafe is my favorite place to eat because it has amazing food in an ultra-friendly environment. They have remarkable lunch specials. Whether you are dining out with friends or coworkers I highly recommend giving Mt. Everest a shot! More...

For all you business travelers out there: give this place a shot. It's a 6 minute drive from the airport and the food is top notch. The owner of the cafe Rash is out taking orders and serving to ensure you have a great experience. Not sure what to get...just ask. Rash won't steer you wrong. I had a full order of the lamb masala and he made me a half order of the lamb chau chau because I wanted to try both plates. If you haven't had Himalayan/Napolese food before, prepare your taste buds. Bold flavors that leave you wanting just one more bite. Like spice? Well they can deliver. I like very spicy food and the medium was perfect. If you want it less spicy, go for the mild. Thanks for the chat Rash and keep doing your thing. Your thing is delicious. More...

Looking for dinner after checking into our motel.  This restaurant was close, had very good Yelp ratings and sounded like something out of the ordinary.  What's a great find! They were not at all busy, but it was after 7 pm on a Monday.  Excellent service.  The owner explained the menu and gave us some suggestions.  We had Mixed Momo for appetizers - my favorite was vegetable,  but they were all very good. We shared Lamb ChauChau and chicken saag.  My favourite was the swag, but both were excellent.  Degree of heat in curry is your choice. He made ours 1.5 which was mild but with some kick.  We'll be back. More...

It's a good place to get poutsas. The food is good. I really liked the samosas chat. The sad thing is that they serve ice cream in the summer only. The curries could be spicier; make sure you ask for hot sauce. More...

Wonderful! We went on a week day evening, and we were seated right away. the gentleman who served us, maybe the owner?, was kind enough to explain how the menu was organized. The food came very quickly and it was all delicious. We ordered the veggie momo, veggie chau chau, and the vegetarian curry. We finished all of it! More...

I always enjoy meals here. Food always meet my expectations. Food is served quickly, server/owner is attentive. My fav so far is veg chow chow and samosa chat. Masala chai is great too. The owner is a real genuine, sweet person. Give this place a try and I am sure you will return. More...

Absolutely wonderful. I've been here many times now and I always try a new dish. Always delicious . The owner and his family are always kind. It's interesting how the low reviews mention Whole Foods. Seriously Makes me wonder if they are being paid? Anyways, if you are looking for good Nepali and Indian food that is relatively inexpensive try Momo! It's the best in any city! More...

This is by far my favorite restaurant in the valley. The owner is wonderful, the food is amazing, and the prices are fantastic. They also happen to deliver to my work.I'm actually surprised this is my first review, as I've been repeat customer for years and no matter what my day is like, eating here is always makes it the best ever.I highly recommend the lamb curry, vegetable korma, vegetable biryani, yak momos, and vegetable chau chau. They've never been anything less than amazing. More...

We received a Groupon for Mount Everest Momo Cafe, having never heard of it before. My parents knew that we love trying new foreign foods, so they thought it would be a fun experience. We had a little Anniversary Staycation this weekend, so we decided to try it out.The location was a bit dodgy, in a strip mall, but the beautiful handpainted mural on the front window showing the name of the restaurant with the mountains in the background gave us a clue to the intense care the owners put into making this space their own. We arrived at the same time as another couple, and were greeted by (I assume?) the owner and asked if we had been there before and we were both first timers. So he stood between our two tables and gave both couples a warm welcome and detailed introduction of the food categories served there, what is most popular and what he recommended we try since it was our first time. We were delighted and I commented to my husband that this is the exact kind of individualized care and pride in the food that I would love to have at every foreign restaurant!My husband and I have both eaten a lot of Indian food but we have never had Tibetan or Nepalese food before so we decided to order the Mixed Momo, which was four different kinds of dumplings: chicken, pork, veggie and yak! This came with a buttery, velvety orange-colored dipping sauce that we could not place the flavors of but was DELICIOUS. We preferred the meat dumplings to the veggie dumplings.Then we shared an order of Samosa Chat which I have only had once before, and loved. This is a cut up Samosa covered with an amazing curry and tamarind flavored sauce, and fresh chickpeas, red onions, fresh tomatoes, and cilantro! IT WAS UNBELIEVABLE!!!! I am getting hungry right now just thinking about it. The combination of warm samosa with the crunchy fried shell, the sweet and spicy sauce, and the freshness of the veggie toppings and then the cool tangy yoghurt... I am not joking, this was literally one of my favorite dishes I have ever eaten in my life.We also tried the Chicken Chau Chau, which was new to us. It was a plate of thick noodles bathed in a beautiful red sauce with chunks of delicious tandoori chicken and topped with fresh cilantro. It was delicious. It reminded us of the textures of Chinese Chow Mein.Our waiter (the owner?) strongly urged us to try the Butter Chicken throughout the whole meal, which made us laugh. We have had it many times before so it was not a priority as we prefer trying new things. But at the end of our meal, when it was clear we were not going to order it, he brought us a tiny little dish of it to try. AND IT WAS SO GOOD I WANTED TO LICK THE PLATE CLEAN. RIDICULOUSLY delicious. He has some secret ingredient in there that makes it like crack. We guessed brown sugar or honey, but he was vague and elusive. HA! So guess what we'll be ordering next time...I do want to observe that during our meal, he lit an incense stick and said some incantations while circling the register, the phone and a few other things, with a little statue of Ganesh sitting there. It made me a little uncomfortable, but I did have to say: whatever he's doing is WORKING! There was a steady stream of customers the entire time we were there, and we will definitely be back as soon as physically possible!! Now I'm just hoping for him to open a restaurant closer to us in Nampa or Caldwell!EDITED: Wanted to add that the menu was MASSIVE! I noticed other reviewers saying that there are few menu options, so I am not sure if this menu version is new and updated, but just in case, I added photos of all the menu pages! More...

I am new to Boise and read about this place in Yelp, I wanted to try it and it did not disappoint. Raj, the owner walked through the menu with us and gave us his recommendations and boy did he nail it. We had the Lamb chau chau, the chicken vindaloo, the pork and chicken momos, garlic naan and chai tea. Everything was amazing, and the perfect spice level, we told Raj we liked it spicy and it was just spicy enough. I feel like this was a great find and I can't wait to go back. Thanks Raj! More...

Originally stumbled upon this place via Groupon over six months ago and haven't been able to stay away since! It's definitely become a regular on the take-out list. The lamb chau chau, butter chicken and tikka masala are all amazing and I've always had great service! I've only had dinner there but have heard great things about their lunch as well. Only complaint is that it is a little bit on the spendy side. More...

My husband & I had dinner for the first time at Momo Cafe.  Never had Himalayan or Tibetan food before & we wanted to give it a try.  We were not disappointed! It was delicious! We shared 1 plate of Yak Momo Dumplings, Lamb Chau Chau (Tibetan Noodle dish) & Sag Panir (cheese sautéed in spinach) & 1 nann.  Everything was filled with so much flavor!  The portions were perfect for the both of us to share we even brought the leftovers home. I recommend Mt Everest Momo Cafe!  Give it a try! It's delicious! More...

I hung out in Boise all day and needed a place to eat dinner before heading back to the less gastronomically diverse rural town I was staying in. I got to Mount Everest right when they opened for dinner (5 pm). The owner was very friendly and sat me himself. I told him I like curry and spicy food, and that I wanted a hearty meal. He recommended the chicken curry and a half order of Nepalese dumplings (momo). The curry was good, but not exceptional. The dumplings were amazing. I would have a full order of dumplings and another appetizer in the future instead of the meal I had. Great overall. More...

Amazing food! I love trying different places and I love momos, this restaurant was definitely a winner. My favorite dish was the navaratan korma. The vegetable biryani was also delicious-I really dont think you could wrong with any of their dishes! The service was quick, food got out quickly, and the owner is very nice and wants to make sure you have a great experience. So if you're looking for a delicious Himalayan meal for a great price look no further-you wont regret it! More...

After reading several Yelp reviews, we ordered the Samosa Chat, Vegetarian Chau Chau, and the Chicken Makhani (butter chicken).  All were delicious!  The place is located in a strip mall off of Broadway.  Everything was bursting with spices and flavor...these guys know what they are doing!  The butter chicken was surprisingly sweeter than traditional butter chicken is served but no complaints here!  Cleanliness level was somewhat concerning so take out might be a better option if that sort of stuff makes you uncomfortable.  Service was alright too...seemed like the server was very tired but was attentive.  Overall, I love the combination of cuisines from different countries...will be returning!
