Neighbouring table recommended a starter and we had the waiter pick out a meat dish and a vegetarian dish to surprise us with. Food was great! Spice level of hot is a flavourful hot. Not burn your mouth. Lovely small restaurant. Very busy though... More

The food was very tasty. I like "spicy" so this food was to my liking. The service was excellent and the atmosphere and decor added an ambience to our dining. We had initially tried their lunch hour buffet which was delicious. However, there is no longer a lunch buffet as they only open for dinner - a big disappointment for... More

Decent prices, decent food, sometimes wait is quite long. And settling the bill was overly complicated as only 1 desktop system so must wait for other servers to enter orders & pmts

The owners, staff, and food are all exceptional. Authentic Nepali food. Better naan cannot be found. The butter paneer and Chau Chau are so good I find it hard to order anything else, but every dish has been incredible.
