Nepal Authentic Dining is located about five minutes from Shepherds Bush Market Station. As you’d expect, they serve up Nepalese cuisine and all of their authentic dishes are made with traditional cooking techniques. We had a warm welcome from the staff who advised us on what to choose from the menu and were very knowledgeable.
We started with some Poppadom’s with really tasty chutney and Momo: popular nepalese dumplings with minced lamb, chicken or vegetable filling in authentic Nepalese spices. I loved these, they were really flavoursome and they were like a samosa filled gyoza! We also tried the Mushroom Sekuwa: marinated in Nepalese spices and grilled in clay oven, a vegetarian version of authentic Nepalese street food Sekuwa. This was tasty but spicy (we were warned!) Too much for me to handle to be honest but my friend managed a few more bites.
For our mains we had the Prawn Nepal: prawns cooked in cream with mango on top, sweet. This was delicious – creamy, flavoursome and topped with the softest stewed mangoes – a sweet dish but I liked that about it. We also tried the Hariyo Farsi Tarkari: medium hot courgette in Nepalese spices, which was good but not our favourite dish. With our mains we had some roti and boiled rice between us with that which was plenty for two.
If you want to try good traditional Nepalese food and you are in the local area then you should visit. The prices are very reasonable starting at just £7.25 for a vegetable main and also just £8.25 for a Nepalese set menu of Taas Set.
