What others have to say about us
The momos are unreal. Recommend the Jhal and steamed ones.
One of the best Momos I have ever tried. The options are great to choose from and service is really amazing. A must go restaurant for authentic Momos in town.
Calgary Momo house is one of the best establishments for people to enjoy momo of the highest quality. Every dish is just as good if not better than the previous with so many options to choose from. One of the best places to enjoy Nepalese cuisine.
I experienced a delicious Chef’s main course and caring staff. Me and my friend came along and visited the restaurant for dinner after a long drive from Saskatoon. We were delighted by the authentic taste of Nepalese cuisine. The spices and flavors were extremely impressive and exactly reminded us experience and food taste from back home Nepal. When we arrived at 8:00 p.m., we got the table right away. We hadn't made a reservation, but the restaurant was almost full.
We heard the famous Jhol Momo and Tandoori Chicken Momo but, do want to try some other delicious and yummy foods in coming days
Overall, I enjoyed our experience. I’d love to visit again. I'd highly recommend it as a nice place in town to go with friends, family, or a partner.
First day in Calgary and first dinner at Calgary Momo House. The service was exceptional. Even though the restaurant was busy we were acknowledged, greeted and seated promptly. Jhol Momo and Tandoori momos were definitely the star of the night. What a nice welcome to Calgary with tons of flavours. Much recommended. Thank you for the delicious food and great service @Calgary Momo House????
