The Nepalese Chef, Homebush
All right, this one is about The Nepalese Chef, situated at
Paramatta road, Homebush, right opposite Horse & Jockey Pub. When we came
over today evening, we came looking for Annapurna Nepalese Restaurant but were
surprised to see the Nepalese Chef. Firstly, parking is a bit difficult to find
as the restaurant is bang on the main Parramatta road. We went into one off the
streets next to the restaurant and then went on a round. Only after we parked
on the street, did we see the boards saying that the parking for the restaurant
is behind in the alley. Perhaps a need for better signage and lights near the
Interiors have been re done, and quite cozy. As you enter,
there is a huge wall painted with a scenery. The bar is as it was before, and
there is a cute little cozy area which has different lighting etc. May be it’s for
functions. The young lady who served us was quite pleasant and charming. We
settled in and ordered the chicken Momo’s along with a goat curry, garlic naan,
potato pickles and a pulao.
The chicken momo’s were descent. Not the most juiciest but descent
and flavoursome. The sauce was okay as well but I have had better momo chutneys.
Next we were served the goat curry and rice along with the potato pickle. We were
served the food but no plates. As we called the the young man to get us the
plates, he asked if we needed the big plates and looked surprised and I found
that quite surprising. The food – we the goat curry was okay but I found the
quality o goat a bit too chewy and the pieces cut were confusing. The curry in
itself was okay- with a prominent flavour of coriander powder, but the meat was
just too chewy and the way the meat was cut, it was least enjoyable. The rice
was a bit undercooked. The potato pickle was okay again, but the peas in the
pickle were a just hard and raw. They should have probably used baby peas.
All in all, a disappointment and I am likely not to come
here again, or if I do, I would try something else. Opens every day from 5:00
P.M. to 10:30 P.M.
