This restaurant recently opened in Portsmouth & apparently many of the older reviews are for a different (former?) restaurant serving completely different food. The menu link associated with this TripAdvisor listing is NOT what was offered today at the restaurant. Service was very friendly, attentive and prompt; delicious food was quickly delivered; atmosphere relaxed and pleasant. Highly recommend if you... More

Delicious food with the freshest of ingredients. Very many vegetarian and vegan options, with all dishes tried so far on multiple visits being top notch. Very welcoming staff. Overall always an enjoyable experience ...a great addition to the Portsmouth restaurant scene.

My wife and I go out to dinner six nights a week and have been to almost all restaurants in Portsmouth. Now we another very good ethnic restaurant. The staff was friendly and the food very tasty and fresh.

We're foodies, always looking to try new, often ethnic, cuisine.We'd never had Himalayan cuisine so when we stumbled on this restaurant in downtown Portsmouth we were eager try it. We ate there on our way to Maine and liked it so much that we ate there again on our way back. The service was delightful. The owner welcomed us, explained... More

I've been twice with multiple people, have tasted eight dishes, and would go back for every single one of them. Everyone in our party was thrilled with the experience, from picky/ simple eaters to adventuresome eaters alike. The Gundruk soup is exceptionally delicious. The service, especially Janadin, is welcoming, accurate, and timely. I've been dining out weekly in Portsmouth for... More

Came in around 3pm on a weekday so the restaurant was almost empty - the staff was attentive and helpful, and the food was delicious! I was dining with a vegan friend, and they had many vegan/vegetarian options for her. We especially loved the mo-mos and the curry. One tip: if you like spice, try a 8 or 9 out... More

Dumplings (momo) to start and then big plates loaded with freshly cooked vegetables and spicy chicken and tofu. Delicious combinations and the spicy heat was just right. Other diners seemed to be back after recent visits. The servers were cheery and happy to chat, or not.

Simply put, we love this place. In the last year or two, we've been more than four times, and counting, and we live over an hour away! The atmosphere is wonderful and most of the tables overlook the heart of Portsmouth which is usually full of the hustle and bustle of a lively downtown. As for the food, well, it'd... More

We have been to many French restaurants all over the country. This is by far one of the best we ever tried. The food was full of favors. Presentation was great. The atmosphere was very lay back. Staff was very friendly. Prices were reasonable. We were there in the fall, so perfect to sit by the window and look out... More

We love the ambiance, the staff, and location - all are great, but what keeps us coming back for brunch is the food! Omelets are fantastic and the Eggs Benedict can't be beat, but the crepes and french toast are worth the price of admission. These folks can cook!
