Hard to fault the ambience service and food were superb and the check exceptional value for money my only downside was the chosen taxi firm hired by Gurkha to take us home no never and asked for twice the price we aid for the arrival journey we challenged and he remitted should not happen and perhaps Gurkha could consider renegotiation with a different firm

My wife and I had a very enjoyable evening. The food was very good, though there was more than enough! We were, however, allowed to take away leftovers in a doggy bag. The service was good. However, I did have to point out that I wished to retain my wine glass, to have a glass of wine after my initial soft drink, and my wife had to remind them about the coffee she had ordered.

The service and food was very good. The curry dish was cooked without the masses of oil you tend to get served up with on Indian restaurants. The only negative are the desserts where these restaurants let themselves down in that they are bought in ready made!! A little thought and home made would have gained them full marks.

First time at a nepalise restaurant and even eating the food off this culture. We absolutely loved it went with friends and shared most meals. Staff were polite and friendly and food was amazing. Would definitely recommend the place and we will be going again soon.

very nicely laid out restaurant with conservatory and rear gardens. Staff were friendly and very helpful - we did not feel rushed in our meal. Food was on a par with the better of the Indian/Nepali restaurants around the Oxford area - not brilliant but actually better than most. Yes we will eat there again.

Good selection of food. Average price. Only complaint would be with speed of service. There was quite a delay serving our main when starters had been cleared. We were only a table of 4 and the restaurant was only about a third full. Overall 4/6.

The food was quite good, it was much better on my previous visit, probably down to choice. Drinks were OK, but that was due to lack of choice. Service was OK, felt a little rushed, but it was not busy in the restaurant.

It was a lovely meal, as usual but the service is always slow, even though it was not particularly busy. The staff are always friendly.
