Similar to Indian cuisine but not as spicy. My wife and had lunch on a busy Tuesday. Service was prompt and courteous. Food was a bit different but quite good.

Each time we walked by my husband was intrigued by the wild boar ribs on the menu. We finally gave them and several other dishes a try. We made reservations but it didn’t seem necessary as we were warmly greeted and seated immediately. The atmosphere...More

The service and food are wonderful. I wish I had Nepalize food in Connecticut where I live. The last Nepalize restaurant I ate at was in Northampton, Mass and it was excellent. However, I think Durbar Square is even better than excellent. We started with...More
