SquareMeal Review of
‘Daughter of Nepal’ Joanna Lumley is a fan of this neighbourhood eatery, which has built a reputation for its additive-free, non-greasy food. Purists should order choyla (chicken from the clay
oven, served cold), showu (a spicy, sweet & sour apple-based curry) or momo (little steamed dumplings), although well-made kormas, Madras & other curry-house favourites are on offer for
those who don’t fancy expanding their culinary horizons. Either way, a well-chosen New World wine list complements the menu’s spicy flavours. The purple interiors are cramped but cosy, & a live
band revs things up on the last Thursday of each month. Greedy Buddha also opens for a very un-Nepalese weekend brunch, with locals tucking into English fry-ups on the bamboo-clad terrace.
