Wangchuk’s Ladakhi Kitchen ( Behind Super Mart 2, DLF Phase 4, Gurgaon)


In a nutshell:

Good spacious restaurant with an excellent outdoor area, efficient staff & good but not that authentic Nepali, Ladakhi & Tibetan food & one of the best momos in Gurgaon.

I lost the bill for this. So unable to paste a copy.

I rate all the food items & then give a final overall rating which is a simple average of the individual item ratings. What the ratings stand for: 5 = Excellent, 4 = Very Good, 3 = Good, 2 = Fair, 1 = Disaster.

Short Description – in case u r in a hurry:

Excited after eating almost authentic North East food at Rosang Café, YUMMRAJ descended upon Ladakhi Kitchen in search of authentic Ladakhi food, to find it serving not much authentic but generally tasty food.

They serve Ladakhi, Tibetan and Nepali food & also ‘Chinese’ including classic chinjabi fare like XYZ manchurian, chilly fish etc.

The menu card was very very elaborate & had immense number of dishes on it. I was wondering how the kitchen wud manage so much unless there was a common base.

Prices in General were not too high by Gurgaon standards. All meat dishes were 3 to 400 and some prawn dishes went up to 500.

Quantities were quite good. Taste is good in general . Great option for those not having an authenticity baggage like me. Hardcore foodies might as well avoid.

We were told that no credit card is accepted as of now & hence we had to pay cash.

Detailed Description – In case u have the Time to NJOY reading:

We started our dinner with Namthuk – A Ladakhi soup with tsampa (roasted flour), black grams & yak cheese Veg. It was a bit sub optimally salted. The taste sprung up to action on adding a bit of salt. Broth was of medium thickness . Not clear not thick. Cud not feel yak cheese by even a long stretch of imagination. Cud not feel black grams either. However felt good overall & the food tasted good. Very good for Delhi winters. It was filling and surely warms one up. Rate it 3/5 as it was good but had nothing outstanding.

We then went for Ladhaki momos – Steamed whole wheat flour dumplings stuffed with ground meat, served with spicy sauces & clear soup. The momo had atta cover & inside the momo it was bursting with juices . Infact the momo was so juicy that we had to b careful – else it wud have spilled all over the plate.

Ground meat was good. It was a bit lumpy & hence seemed to b hand minced. The momo exuded very good flavors of meat and also of herbs. Loved it. Rate it 4.5/5. Not too many momos in Gurgaon r as good.

For main course we tried Dry gyathuk flat noodles that was ‘in-house’ made. The noodles had crunchy veggies. We chose Ladakhis kitchen special as the flavor which was essentially supposed to b mixed meat. We were told that mixed meat includes chicken, pork and tenderloin .

What we got seemed to b all chicken and no other meat or maybe the buffalo and pig chickened out in the thought of getting slaughtered. The noodles were very nice. The overall taste was good but not any different from the chinjabi delicacy ‘Hakka noodle’. Rate it 3/5.

As mentioned b4 as well, the chef is a momo superstar. All food with momos were outstanding. So the momo in rhe chotse (Tibetan dish) was awesome. It had a rich, robust flavor. Within the momo was a thick juicy liquid with outstanding taste. I wud rate the momos 4.75/5.

The soup was suboptimally salted and average to taste. Coriander leaf flavor was highest. Spring onions also showed up. Soup was average but nothing great / different. Nothing Ladakh about it. Rate the Soup 2.25/5. Rating of the dish averages out to 3.5/5.

Overall rating of food at Wangchuk’s averages out to 3.5/5.

I wud surely get back to have momos but I guess nothing else. What’s ur thought?

  1. You should give this place another visit and I advise you to try the Sha-phaley, Sekuwa, Sukuti. The momos are great but so are these dishes. Bet you will rate it higher post this.
