1. Himalayan Butter Chicken

Himalayan butter chicken is a popular comfort food in Nepal, and it’s no wonder! This dish is made with chicken, tomato and spices cooked to perfection over an open flame. It’s served with buttered rice and flatbread for a delicious meal that you’ll want to load up on again and again. 

2. Chowmein – Sukti


Chowmein is a famous noodle dish that can be served in many ways, but the basic idea is that you get to choose the toppings! For example, here at Calgary Momo house we serve chowmein topped with shredded chicken, vegetables, tofu, and shrimp!
Sukti which is a Nepalese term for dried meat is another topping that our customers love! Come join us for a delicious affair with a plate of sukti chowmein and more!

3. Tandoori Momo – Chicken

Momos, a traditional Nepalese dumpling that is filled with your choice of meat, cheese and vegetables – served with an assortment of dips, is undoubtedly Nepal’s most loved creation.
We mean, it is called “Calgary Momo House” for a reason!

Our Tandoori momos are just regular momos, except they are not! Smothered with a spicy marinate and later cooked in an open oven (tandoor) until golden brown, is what you call a perfect momo evolution. We normally don’t discriminate against our momos, but if we have to pick one, it’d be our tandoori chicken momos!

4. Thukpa


Nepal is known for its breathtaking beauty, rich culture, history and its rustic but delicious cuisines. One such dish is the humble Thukpa. A traditional noodle soup, with added vegetables and meat, similar to pho.
Thukpa is a perfect meal for cold days and just any other day! If you have never tried it before, believe us when we say you are missing out on a lot!

5. Kheer & Gulab Jamun

You know you are in for a sweet delight when you order our Kheer and gulab jamun.
A decadent, mellow rice pudding flavoured with cardamom, saffron, and a rich creamy taste of sweetened milk — kheer can be served hot or chilled, and both versions taste equally delish!

Whereas Gulab Jamuns are heavenly balls of fried dough, drenched in sugar syrup, with a melt-in-the-mouth tenderness and are traditionally served warm.

Bring these both together and your taste buds will be forever grateful.

6. Sekuwa


Sekuwa, a grilled wonder, consisting of lamb or goat meat, seasoned with fresh herbs and spices, skewered together is what divine tastes like. Being one of the renowned street food dishes in Nepalese culture, it is undoubtedly worth the hype! Served with flaked rice and Momo House’s special chutney, at your very own Nepalese restaurant in Calgary, “Calgary Momo House” is something you’d wanna add to your bucket list again and again!

Authentic food is the true testament of a country’s culture and history, and Calgary Momo House does a whole justice to that fact! Located in an elegant setting in Calgary, Alberta, the ambience of the restaurant is relaxed and inviting, with a warm atmosphere and friendly staff. The walls are painted in light colours that make you feel at home and set your mind at ease. The lighting is dim enough to be relaxing but bright enough to see everything clearly. The tables are spaced far enough apart so you can still talk without shouting, but close enough that you can easily get up and move around the room if needed.

The music playing in the background is soft and low-key—not too loud to be distracting, but loud enough to be heard when you need it. It’s not too distracting either—it’s just right for the mood of the restaurant, which is somewhere between relaxing and energizing.
