Loyalists know that their seventh meal is free, while novices should know that they can claim a 10% discount on their first order between $30 and $50.

Dishes that perennially wow diners at Sherpaz’ Fitztory premises are numerous. Ranked by popular acclaim, signature specialties include the chicken momo – steamed dumplings with fresh tomato chutney – delicacies that draw from Chinese tradition as much as Indian and Nepalese. Classic butter chicken is always a surefire winner, here, too, best enjoyed with a herbed and spiced rice biryani. Vegetarians will love the potato and pea samosas, spiced eggplant, and the classic saag paneer, combining spinach with Indian cottage cheese, tomato, capsicum, herbs, and a dash of cream.
