It might be called The Laughing Yak, but it ain't laughing when it comes to authentic Nepalese cooking. Combining momos, thukpas, chatamaris and signature cocktails, this eatery might have just found the secret to happiness.

Undoubtedly one of the best Nepalese kitchens in London, The Laughing Yak is utilising recipes passed down for generations to create a dining experience unlike any other. And their lush and fragrant location proves to be the perfect setting for leisurely catch-ups and perfect first dates.

Now, if you're not familiar with Nepalese cuisine, allow us to introduce you thukpa, a traditional warming noodle broth with your choice of protein, be that pokhara chicken or fermented lentils. Then we have chatamari, the Nepalese answer to a pizza, that tops lentil and rice pancakes with tomato chutney, mozzarella and a range of toppings that include a plantain curry and braised pork.

But no Nepalese menu is complete without momos. These steamed dumplings provide sustenance in the alpine country and are stuffed with anything from buffalo, chilli lamb or fermented aubergine. End on a sweet note with a masala chai and see if you can't conquer that next summit.
