Well cooked and very tasty Nepalese food, similar but slightly gentler than the Indian variety, well presented in very attractive restaurant. (They do a good English cooked breakfast as well but this may only be available to residents?)

I have visited this restaurant on a number of times The food and the staff are fantastic. Located just outside of Chepstow. If you want to try something a little different to the normal Chinese or Indian restaurant you must give it a try. Excellent

Ate here last night and it was the best food I have had since India. Beautiful subtle flavours unlike the heavy, greasy food in many Indian restaurants. The service was helpful and prompt with everything freshly cooked. The decor is pleasant and the facilities smart and clean. The food and drinks were reasonably priced. Will be going back.

A surprisingly good restaurant in a somewhat out of the way location. Excellent and very polite service, superb food at very reasonable prices and a nice display of Gurkha military history on display. An enjoyable and very pleasant evening spent . I have now visited this restaurant on more than one occasion and will return.

Visited on a Saturday evening and was very dissapointed in the food, it was bland and flavourless. Starter arrived cold and was sent back to kitchen, it was just heated in the microwave which made the popadom soggy. Main course was served hot but was complerly flavourless and bland and not worth the £9.95 for 5 very small chunks of... More
