We were just traveling through Penzance and wanted a quick bite. Surprised by the quality of this place. Lovely food, and interesting with some Nepalese dishes on the menu. Very friendly and attentive service.

Onion bargees very nice luckily we only ordered one portion (3 bargees) which together with main course was plenty. Good size portions. It is Nepalese and Indian... More
