I must start this with saying this place is a hole in the wall. I think the space was designed in the mid eighties and never changed. Not dirty mind you, but it certainly isnt Moneray Bay. That said, THE FOOD WAS AMAZING! I had never encountered Nepalese food before, but it was incredibly flavorful. Heat, sweet, tart, all balanced and wonderful. Being as Nepal sits between India and China, I should have expected its food to take the best from both cultures, and thats exactly what it was like. The pan fried Momo (theyre a type of potsticker) were one of my favorites. Spicy, sweet, savory, wonderful. The main Nepalese dish, no matter the meat choice, all came with wonderful little dishes, each one alone would have made me happy. The most surprising favorite for me was one of the tiny dishes included that was a carrot pickle. Not that the lamb wasnt also wonderful, but this is a VERY surprising restaurant. If you want to be pleasantly surprised, this is the place. 100%
Subba is a great little Nepali restaurant with tasty food. There are plenty of vegetarian options and the food is always made fresh and served hot. The place is not too fancy but the owner and staff are really kind and genuine. Must-trys on the menu include the veggie fried momos which are accompanied by a slightly tangy yet spicy sauce. The veggie datsi has a cheesy base but packs a punch. I would also recommend the all vegetables dish which is kind of a spicy gravy with potatoes, carrots, cauliflower and other veggies. We go there quite often and are always very happy by the quality of their food. I highly recommend this restaurant and we would definitely be visiting again!
We are regulars, the Chicken Nepalese and vegetable momos are our favorites. The Chinese and Indian dishes are also very good. Its BYOB with no corkage fee and the the owner is so nice and personable. Its an authentic experience, a great value and highly recommend. The restaurant is spacious and comfortable on the second floor above a Subway sandwich shop near Allegheny General Hospital. I would have rated it five stars if the ambiance was nicer. The entryway and stairwell going up to the restaurant is not very inviting but the delicious food and great prices make us go back over and over.
While the service was a little slow, it was well worth the wait. I ordered the Nepali Vegetarian dish and was not disappointed. I thought the spice level was spot on to maintain the dish flavor while enhancing it through the spiciness. Adding the hot sauce to the dishes is highly recommended as it was delicious, as long as you can handle it. The amount of food may look small at first, but after feasting, you will be satisfied. I definitely recommend this place. Dont be alarmed by the entrance, heh. They gotta make due with what they have. The interior is very inviting.
Really delicious food! Really delicious Sadako chicken appetizer. And excellent Nepali chicken-cant quite remember the name of it but its under the Nepali meals it comes rice and a sweet roasted eggplant and root vegetable compote, various dips and toppings and chutneys spiced so wonderfully and of course chicken stood in a deep red curry with some heat BYOB which is always a plus. Not a fancy place but completely comfortable
Delicious, inexpensive, great. They make some sort of magical flavor sauce that makes everything fantastic. I usually get the veggie momo and veggie Nepalese meal, plus a chai. Prices are really good, the food is really good, and the employees are very friendly. An exactly perfect ethnic dive. I always recommend it very highly to anybody who asks for a restaurant tip on the North Side!
I went to this subba in Pittsburgh thinking it being an authentic Indian Nepali restaurant, which turned out to be my worst food experience ever. The food was not good and the service was pathetic. I asked for a coke which came after half n hour and the food was not authentic and tasted like mixture of everything. I would have rated 0 if I could
Hidden treasure of Pittsburghs North Shore. Expertly prepared menu. All fresh ingredients made to order. Offers Chinese, Indian, and Nepalese dishes. Extremely reasonable prices. Open every day 10am-10pm, which is very convenient. Dine in or takeout. Highly recommended if you enjoy Asian Cuisine.
I came to discover this place via a Google search. I recently moved to Pittsburgh and have been trying out different restaurants. This by far has been my favorite experience. It was delicious and cheap. Food was fresh and wasnt too greasy like some othet Indian restaurants
So happy I found this little gem. Wihin a week or two of eating here, I start craving it again! The masala chai is the closest Ive found to how it tastes in Nepal. I also love the momos and chicken and vegetarian Nepali meal. The spices are incredible.
The momo is a staple, which is a nice fusion of dumpling and curry flavor. More importantly for the Asian palate, the dumpling skin was great texture--not too soft but not too hard either. The thali (lamb, specifically) was tasty and had great variety.
regular customer to this place suddenly something got changed. Quality and quantity is less compared to a week ago. Ordered Tso chicken but rice is tooooooo dry. Update - awesome tasty food they are back to quality and quantity.
GREAT food. Ive only been here once but plan on being back whenever Im in the area. Momos are great. Nepalese food is too. Had the pork. Came with many different sides to try. Lots of different great flavors.
Amazing food. Best pickle ever. Even the lomein was great. The service was friendly. It was almost eerily quiet in there, though.
Great service and great food. Not the high end kind of place but the owner tries very hard to make everyones experience great.
Service could be better but i accept that in a little restaurant like this. Try the Chicken Nepali. Its fantastic
A great surprise, Ive been a regular for a year! If you like spicy food get the pork sadako and chicken momo!
Food doesnt test as good as i expect ! Lo-mein soup was really bad ! Plus service wasnt good either
You guys are never open. Even when I come before 2 and after 5 you guys are closed. Whats going on?
Great food..Authentic taste..The momo and chowmein reminded me of Nepal..Highly recommend..:-)
Hole in the wall - but surprisingly decent food. Recommended if on the North Shore for lunch.
