Really nice food. Very polite and helpful staff. Good prices just a little quiet, which is nice for some people.

I almost don't want to write this review, as I don't want everyone to find out and make getting a table difficult. Best curry house for miles around. I've had 4 different visits, different meal each time, and each one hit the spot. Every mouthful an explosion of joy. They do take a little longer than your usual microwave slop... More

This is the second time I have visited this restaurant and both times I have been equally pleased with the quality! Fantastic food, clean surroundings, friendly staff... It's just a shame it's so quiet! I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who enjoys traditional home cooked Nepalese food! We will definitely be returning!

Lovely minimalist decor and a friendly welcome. Excellent quality for both starter and main course, with fresh, subtle flavours. Good portion size, I would not hesitate to come here again and again. I think the staffing may be minimal at times, though - the waiter disappeared for quite a long period when a large party was about to be served,... More

second time eating here and was just as impressed as the previous time. the restaurant is in a good location and has a very pleasant and relaxing ambience. the food has been exceptionally good both times, really tasty yet without the oiliness that you can often seem to get with indian food. definitely our new favourite in the area!

The food here is as I've said above fantastic every time I've eaten here I've been blown away by the quality of the food and service price wise its far more reasonable than other Curry houses I've been to. It's not your bog standard curry house Nepalese food I think from the experiences I've had in here is more flavoursome.... More

I was a bit sceptical first time many years ago when my husband and I decided to try it out, but we have been back many times over the years and will be back again for sure. I like that it's a small and simple restaurant, the gentle himalayan music is pleasantly setting the atmosphere for a relaxing evening and... More

This restaurant has been here for ages, good food, welcoming service and good value. A little different from your standard curry and welcome for that. Give it a try.

It's hard to be simplistic about the place. A gents toilet with a light not working wasn't a great start. The division of the bill amongst the 12 of us was brilliantly handled by the manager Menu was very limited and had an overwhelming bias towards chicken, (not my favourite meat). I ordered the grilled king prawns only to be... More
