One user couldn't stop raving about Momo's Mount Everest Cafe, where the Nepalese and Indian dishes are so authentic you might forget you're in Idaho for a moment. This place is worth checking out if you want to chase those rich, aromatic flavors.

It's the perfect spot for those who crave something different but utterly delicious. For those who can't get enough Thai food, Nahm Thai is proclaimed the best in Boise, and according to fans, "it's not even close."
