More about Jojolapa Nepalese Bar & Kitchen, Birmingham

Home of the Himalayas, Nepal is bordered by the gargantuan nations of China and India, and because of its position, has received culinary influences from both countries. That’s not to say that Nepalese cuisine isn’t unique, but rather the opposite is true. A flavourful cuisine shaped by a mountainous landscape, Nepalese cuisine isn’t uniform, but enompasses a wide range of unique ingredients, preparation methods, and spices, depending on where the dishes originate within the country. At JoJolapa Bar and Restaurant in Birmingham’s Ladywood, diners are exposed to the very finest selection traditional specialties, which aim to showcase the rich culinary heritage that makes Nepalese cooking so very unique and flavourful.

Executive chef Ganesh Shrestha works hard behind the scenes to ensure that Birmingham’s JoJolapa Bar and Restaurant’s offerings are of the absolute highest standard. Mains such as the kashi ko mashu (Nepalese-style lamb curry with tomato, onion, fresh coriander, and spices) or the vegetarian favourite ramtoriya (okra sauteed with onions and spices) are the perfect options for newbies to the cuisine, and starters like steamed momo (Nepalese dumplings) are the perfect accompaniment to any meal. We highly recommend making a reservation for this upscale Nepalese restaurant on Birmingham’s Newhall Street, as spaces are limited!

Fantastic as usual!! Always great service and food and an atmosphere and setting to match! And only £19 for a bottle of prosecco, what more could you ask?
