Kumar Chan Restaurant & Bar resides in the Little Asia Market in historic Yoshizuka, Hakata-ku. Enter the traditional Japanese wooden "machiya" home, where the genkan entrance houses a unique shop packed with spices and halal foods. Kumar Chan offers a cozy bar counter and a small dining area, where you can enjoy very authentic and reasonably-priced home-cooked Nepalese treats like curry and momo. You'll find a few innovative surprises such as their Tandoori Chicken Burger w/Fries, and some hard-to-get lamb dishes from Nepal and Bhutan, too. Try the richly-spiced pork spare ribs for a sensory experience that confirms you have entered another world, a tiny satellite of Kathmandu. The owner has lived in Japan for nearly a third of his life. He's joined part-time by other folks from Nepal. They speak English, Nepalese and Japanese.
