Fodor's Expert Review Manakamana Gurkha
It's not what you might expect to find in the cozy confines of Tunbridge Wells, but the Nepalese cuisine at this friendly spot is popular with locals. The spicy mountain cuisine is similar to Indian food, with distinctive touches. Meats and fish are cooked with care in traditional clay ovens or barbecued on flaming charcoal. Try the spicy thulo jhinge tarkari (a spicy curry made with king prawns) or kukhara bjojan (tender marinated chicken, cooked with deep-fried cabbage). The vegetarian options are appealing, too.
