Had a great meal tonight with a work friend. The staff were really nice and helpful. The food was just incredible and a wide selection. By the way, the food is not as spicy as you may fear, so be brave and go for something with a couple of chillies beside it ;) I'll be back... soon hopefully

Super food, all very tasty. Much of it listed as being traditional Nepalese dishes but also a section for the usual curries that many also seek out. In conversation with the staff during repeat visits I mentioned I liked very hot food and few minutes later they presented me with a complimentary (full) dish of their hottest item on the... More

Lovely tasting food, good size potions, friendly staff, what more could you want. Nepalese food is really very different from Indian food, it felt fresh and not so heavy. Tonight was my first visit but it will not be my last.

Another excellent meal from this restaurant which serves Nepalese & Indian Cusine. Well worth a visit. Previously visited in February 2014 for my wife's birthday with the family. Unfortunately they stop doing the buffet on Sundays. However, they do have a set meal choice in the evenings.

The best Nepalese food, the Nicest staff, and that extra touch always. I recommend the Hariyali chicken or Everest curry, but to be honest I've eaten here in excess of ten times and every meal I've had has been world class. You must try it!

We stopped here to pick up a takeaway on the way home and were very pleasantly surprised. The chap who took our order was very courteous. We asked for recommendations for a couple of spicy dishes and got what we hoping for. I really love Indian food and i have to say this one of the best I've had. No... More

The food was excellent and freshly cooked it was fantastic to experience Nepalese fair and beat hands down our usual Indian . Good atmosphere and they threw in a free coffee whilst we waited for a taxi they ordered for us . Hard working but attentive and friendly staff will definitely be returning .
