Such great food and service!! Definitely recommend the momos and the lamb curry. Loved the chicken nibbles, but they have a kick to them! Yum! Will definitely be back.

NEPALESE FOOD at📍TAMA Eatery! I included these in my @zomatonz “Oksana Overeating in Auckland” Collection! This was my first time trying Nepalese cuisine and it was such a explorative and exotic experience for me! We got the Lamb Chowella, Steamed Chicken Dumplings, Goat Curry, Chicken Tacos and Saag! - • Lamb Chowella (10/10) HOLYYY so this is a dish with incredibly explosively-seasoned tender lamb cubes and TOASTED RICE FLAKES and fried mung beans which fascinated me so much. The first mouthful was absolutely insane because I didn’t expect it to be so CRUNCHY! I won’t say any more because you all need to try this for yourself! • Dumplings (9/10) I loved the sesame-tomato soup! Such an interesting flavour and paired extremely well with the juicy dumplings! My only downfall is the filling probably lacked a bit of flavour. • Curry (9/10) amazingly tender and surprisingly light in terms of flavour! However it was a bit dry for a Curry and the ratio of curry : rice was probably a bit imbalanced for my personal liking because I like to drench the rice with all the sauce! But the rice was incredibly soft and fluffy which reminded me of clouds hahaha. • Tacos (8/10) kind of just like an ordinary taco for me, but the chicken tenders were cooked to PERFECTION it literally melted away in the mouth! A sweet-Spicy sauce elevated the flavour but watch out for jalapeños in there! Overall the flavours are on the salty-flavourful side so be prepared to have a overwhelmed palate! Really affordable prices too! However we also ordered the venison dish and was expecting that, but when we asked the waitress she said “oh there was no more”...and this was already during the arrival of our dishes. If you don’t have something left, maybe inform diners right at the beginning so we can order an alternative rather than being left short of a dish. Not really happy about that. Food: 9/10 Price: 9/10 Service: 6/10 Ambience: 7/10

Amazing food!!! Momo’s have got to be the best dumplings I have ever had. Beats dominion road dumplings any day. Plenty of vegan/vegetarian options. Highly recommend!
