Cafemandu Flavors of Nepal
Irving, TX 75038
- Vegetarian Friendly, Evening, Delivery, Takeout
- Lunch, Dinner
Top pick: A new menu addition is sekuwa, the Nepalese grilled skewers of seasoned meat similar to kebabs; try the ultra-flavorful goat.
The downside: Cafemandu set up an online ordering platform during the pandemic, but when this author used it in November, the restaurant’s employees weren’t actually checking for online orders. Comments on social media suggest this happens regularly, so, for now, call your orders in by phone or visit in person.
Fun fact: If you’re waiting on a takeout order, there’s a guitar on a stand in the corner that guests are invited to strum.
