We went to Zombola 2 for dinner. Everything was tasty. We had beef momos, vegetable and cheese momos, chicken sausages, vegetable and cheese pakoras and a bowl of noodles.

We ate at Zombala 2 since that was closer to our hotel. Excellent steamed and fried beef momos. Went back there the next day for the same! Yummy!

The menu is big. The Chinese they cook needs serious change. I think they do not use the right ingredients. The chicken they cut is weird and at times not edible. Chinese needs marination which I think is missing. The restaurant is located centrally and has good seating. I wish they change and improve for the better.

There are 2 Zombala's, and I went to Zombala 2. I believe they are the same. Zombala 2 is easy to find and on circle intersection on Norzin Lam. Service is quick, and they are generous in their servings. I had the veg-cheese momo (average), mushroom soup (below par) and the Ting Ming mushroom with spring onions (which I found... More
