MANAKAMANA (マナカマナ)

One of my friends said this Nepal/Indian restaurant was famous but at lunch time they only do buffets(950yen), which I tried anyway. There were four different kinds of curries(chicken curry was the best), naan and saffron rice, some fried snacks and simple salad, yogurt, chai and coffee. It is really not bad for a buffet lunch. The naan were cut into small pieces so you could take a small piece at a time and wait for new ones coming out hot from the oven when the old ones got cold.

Went back for dinner. Nepal steamed dumplings "momo" - just like the chinese "sho lon po" but with lamb meat and thicker skin, quite nice though. The sauce in the middle was quite spicy. Cheese naan, very soft and the melted cheese had onion in it.

シェフサラダ、480円。タンドリー スペアリブ、1300円。
Chef's salad. Gosh isn't it massive for 480yen?! A bit too much dressing.
Tandoori sparerib was absolutely wonderful! I couldn't stop munching the bones covered in chilli paste. The meat was not as soft and tender as I had hoped but the hot spicy flavour satisfied my tastebuds so no complaints.
