About the restaurant
Thank Sagarmatha for the Nepalese cuisine renaissance in Melbourne. And if you live in Mentone, thank Marpha for their blessed existence up on Mentone Parade. It’s been a boom year for this less well-travelled South Asian cuisine – and it’s hardly southern is it? This Himalayan culinary tradition blends northern Indian and Chinese traditions with more distinctly indigenous influences for a high-altitude dining experience that’s hearty, spicy and satisfying. A true community player, Marpha has close ties to charities and sports clubs in the area, made possible by the sheer popularity of their food. Plus, to battle the Melbourne summer these guys fly in Mustang beer, ice cold and Himalayan through and through! If you’ve never gone Nepalese, or even better you surely have, Marpha is one restaurant you need to book now – or again.
