Recent review seem spot on. Food was excellent, generous portions, reasonably priced and very pleasant and attentive staff. The chef even had time to come out and introduce himself to the diners and have a quick chat with everyone. Decor is a bit dated but...More

We are not just an ordinary Nepalese or Indian restaurant. Founded in 2004 as a take-away in Market Street, Torquay, we were the very first Nepalese Cuisine Speacialist in the whole of Torbay or Devon. We have grown from a single small takeaway to a big licensed restaurant. We serve stylish, high quality, great value Nepalese and Indian Cuisine, as well as outstanding quality food, responsibly sourced from around 7 suppliers nationally. Since the closure of our takeaway in market street, I've seen number of so called Nepalese Restaurant opened around the bay but we can guarantee you none of them is traditional nepalese like ours. We are a family run business where my dad is the headchef, my uncle is the second chef, my mum is the customer host and im the waiter/manager. Now thats a proper family business. We look forward to seeing you and serving you mouth watering momo (my personal fav).
