Very nice

I liked it a lot. This place is richly decorated Indian style, music is also Eastern, suitable for meditation. Great choice of foods, a lot of vegan options. The food was great, and I will definitely come again. The only thing, it's not cheap.

Pros: food, decor, music
Cons: price

Nowhere near 100% veggie but you'll struggle to do better as a vegetarian in Minsk. English menu available. The manager is a very polite (unlike many staff in bars and restaurants in this city) and helpful guy who speaks English and will gladly explain which dishes are veggie, egg free, dairy free etc. Open from lunch and late into the evening 7 days a week.


* Ploshad Yakuba Kalosa metro - there are exits to both sides of the street that is the main street running through Minsk.

* Walk uphill on the main drag from the metro station and immediately take the 1st turning on the right. This is the street that Jomalungma is on.

* If you walk uphill on this street for about 5 minutes you will come to the restaurant located on the left side.

Pros: Very helpful manager, English spoken and on the menu, Open long hours 7 days

The manager was really helpful. He speaks English and most of the staff does as well. There wasen't really any vegan options but there is rice and vegetables or noodles to chose from. Not a far walk from the metro but can be difficult to find if you don't have a map.

Pros: friendly
Cons: smokers

    Hi again Julio,

    As per the dialog we previously had on this subject.

    I'm a little confused that your review says that there aren't any vegan options available at Jomolungma. I ate there yesterday and was offered soup to start and a choice of main course dishes. I agree that it would be accurate to say that there aren't that many vegan options but of the places I have been to in Minsk Jomolungma is easily the best if you are a vegan vegetarian.

    Keep well as always,
