Our guide fro Summit Safaris suggested this local place in Cochin and what a find it was. We visited the HImalayas with him 18 months ago and there tasted moms and other Tibetan fare. This was an authentic bit of Tibet in Cochin and such a nice change from Souther Indian food during 3 weeks of Tamil Nadu, Kerala and Goa. It is right next door to a good, relatively authentic Kathakali theatre so a great place to have dinner afterwards. It is a simple place which you might overlook initially but very much worth it. The young woman who seemed to be the owner is from Tibet and was lovely.

I had been hearing a lot about this place from my friends, but never knew where the place was. Recently I went for a massage in Fort Kochi and the spa therapist showed me the way to the restaurant.

Unlike the expectations of a RESTAURANT, the place is similar to a HOMESTAY EATERY. You feel the homely environment. No hi-fi things around. The entire family participates in cooking and serving and God bless them, the food is delicious.

I had Chicken Momos in Soup and Chicken Thupka. Both very reasonably priced and very very tasty. Quantity rocks as these two dishes were enough for two of us. We had ordered a steam dumplings too but withdrew the order with the advice from the lady who took the order. That was true. Quantity was very good.

Thupka soup rocks...

A talking parrot keeps the kids busy. The restaurant is frequented by International Tourists than keralites.

The place is near KATHAKALI centre Fort Kochi.

Recommended for all.

After two visits and two portions of beef momo soup I can safely say I'm a big fan of this diminutive eatery. Tucked out if the way near the Basilica the decor is nondescript but the low roof and Tibetan music give it a charming atmosphere nonetheless.

The wide range of cheap dishes make this a great place to come with friends and share meals.

No beer available.
