The food was very tasty and the staff were very helpful and welcoming. I tried the Nepalese menu options and beer and liked it. The portions were copious. There are more Indian food options on the menu so if you are not adventurous you will find some classics.
Fairly quiet for a Tuesday night but the service and food was brilliant at a reasonable cost. Main complaint would be that my Cobra beer tasted like the lines needed a good clean. Other than that, very happy.
We have eaten here before and the food is always excellent, with a mix of mainly Indian and some Nepalese. Very friendly staff and good service.
Excellent alternative to a traditional 'Indian' restaurant. Lots of subtle differences between Indian and Nepalese cuisine make for delicious food. Great service and reasonably priced.
It was a lovely restaurant; with polite and friendly staff. Food arrived promptly. Everyone was made to feel welcome and enjoyed the experience. Would go back again.
