Dinner at Cheel

The Cheel serves unique & delicious Nepali cuisine. They added an enclosed patio since the last time I was here. I enjoyed dining in the patio, and the patio chairs were very comfortable. Boar was the most unique item that I tried from the menu. It was delicious! And is served in a couple of dishes. If you try it, you won’t be disappointed. There are very distinct sauces on the menu that are made from several spices. And If you like Lentil soup, the dal bhat is a real treat.

Nepali thali

This is a traditional Nepali dinner including a selection of various dishes: 1 of the dishes was boar. It was very tender and melted in my mouth.

Amazing experience!

We visited in the summer during a live outdoor concert that Cheel was hosting, so the vibe was probably a lot more lively and festive than it usually is. There was a buffet set up outside but we wanted our first visit to be closer to the usual experience, so we headed inside. Still lively and fun… the servers and bartenders all had bright chalk thrown on them, making it look like they’d just finished a color run. Delicious food, prompt and friendly service (I thought our server said he was the owner’s son… although my dining companion thought he said brother), and a very welcoming setting. We’ll be back!

First time having this drink. I’ve had it elsewhere since (at upscale restaurants serving only premium liquor) but still think they make it the best here!

Delicious and So Intimate :)

The Cheel is all about the authentic flavors and ancient food preparation techniques of Nepal. Led by owners Barkha and Jesse Daily, both of whom grew up cooking with their families from a very young age – Barkha in Kathmandu, Jesse in Idaho – the cheel is a place for food adventurers, enthusiasts, and aficionados willing to try new things.

At the heart of the menu are “tidbits” or small plates that feature momos, delicate and savory dumplings served with crisp, spicy dipping sauces or aachars. Tamarind, ginger, sesame, timur, jimbu, cumin, mustards, saffron, chili pepper, garlic – these are the heritage ingredients that impart their distinctive tang. Did we mention cilantro, lemon, and lime?

Thali, or feast, is a traditional Nepalese dinner of flavor-infused and lightly grilled vegetables, marinated lamb or wild boar, rice and lentils.

Mount Everest meets Mount Elbert with an American line-up of burgers & fries, grilled cheese, and BLT’s served as you like it or with a neat Nepali kick. Soups, salads, sides, and dal, are here too, all with a Kathmandu spice-route inspired spin.

The Cheel is located in downtown Thiensville in a rare 1890’s Victorian landmark that has been lovingly restored and re-imagined. The eclectic décor including an original art deco bar, high tops and banquets, and outdoor patio, is suffused with a contemporary Asian feel and metallic accents.

Enjoy any of the sassy-crafty cocktails, a nod to the building’s storied past, made with house infused liquors, fresh pressed juices and exquisite bitters, or choose from a great variety of wine, beer, and non-alcoholic libations.

Quench your thirst for food adventure, taste the heat and feel their passion for serving up a unique and convivial dining experience where you can relax and just “cheel out.”
