Blue Poppy serves excellent Momos and Thukpa. They have very economic prices and their food quality is good. Waiters are cooperative and they have a variety of pork dishes plus Nepali Veg and Non Veg Thalis. Parking is available but they do not serve liquor. Great for a family outing. I will be going again.

It’s famous for its Nepalese dishes, primarily its steamed and pan friend wontons or momos, and also for its pork and Chinese-Indian (Chindian) dishes, soups and noodles in particular. Service is efficient but far from friendly. The food is... More

Besides the fact that the restaurant could be cleaner and smell nicer, the food is simply brilliant. The Kothays are finger licking good.

Good food, that's all about this. Otherwise, the amenities are very basic, the arrangement is quite shoddy. However, this place rubs off well with the young crowd. Overall, good value for money, though not in the category of visit-again-and-again.

If you are looking for good Chinese cuisine within a moderate budget this is the place to go to. The quality is extremely good. The atmosphere is homely. This is essentially the restaurant of the Sikkim House. Although it is somewhat difficult to locate - being in the first floor of the building and having no signage elsewhere - and... More

a very basic restaurant located in the sikkim house ..if u r in the mood for nepali/tibetian dishes then this is the place u want to be. price is ok ..a meal for two should be under Rs 600/- or maybe a little bit more depending on your appetite. loved the pork momos and chicken clear soup among other dishes....
