ReviewsEveryone Loves Our Food!

"The momos are giants, fat round dumplings with furrowed peaks, rising from a pink-orange sauce the color of penne alla vodka. It tastes a little like penne alla vodka, too, oddly, inexactly and wonderfully — marinara meets tikka masala, with momos as tortelloni writ large."

"Woodside Cafe is what got me into momos in the first place and it's momos are what I compare any other ones I come across in the neighborhood. Thus far, nothing has compared to their scrumptious and savory kothe momos or the heat and crunch of their red-hot chili momos. I've had them in meat filled versions but I actually prefer their lighter vegetarian kind...Go here, you won't be disappointed!"


"5 star for the servers! The food was very lite and tasty, it’s a perfect Thali for me. Must try! Also the live band were fun and took song requests."


"Chef-owner Purushotam Khadgi hails from Kathmandu, Nepal’s capital, but he worked for a decade at Sotto Cinque on Manhattan’s Upper’s East Side, hence his signature “momo in pink cream sauce” which draw their culinary DNA from the classic pasta dish. Since many South Asians don’t partake of alcohol, Khadgi leaves out the vodka, but the dumplings are lovely nonetheless."

"The food here is excellent. The word excellent does not even do any justice. From waiwai sadeko to the pink cream sauce momo (dumpling in their special sauce) and the chicken lollipop and chicken thali (I am a meat lover) and... I can just go on forever. They make the best Lassi in town girl. I usually get the plain ones but the mango one is very tasty too. The consistency is just right!"
