Right by the Birchmere, a while ago there was a Sri Lankan place here. I am happy to recommend the lamb chops, tikka masala, and duck-fried rice, at the moment this place is a clear first choice in the Nepalese category. It mixes in many Indian dishes, is not really trying to play the mom and pop game, and maybe they don’t have the very best momos. But their best dishes are really quite special.
