A Little bit of Nepal !

Tucked away in a side street we came across this unprepossessing little restaurant. Step inside and you find a lovely, cosy piece of Nepal, and a very warm welcome ! All the dishes we tried were absolutely delicious. My chicken absolutely melted in my mouth. Everything was cooked to perfection... read more

I went for dinner here tonight (Tuesday 26 May), with two other people, and we all had a wonderful time. The staff were very polite, friendly and attentive and the restaurant was comfortable, clean and had a nice atmosphere, partly due to the lovely Nepalese music that was playing. The food was simply superb, the best Indian/Nepalese food that I... More

We've had some lovely meals here - eating in or getting take aways. The service is great, the food is delicious and great value for money. There's a nice, friendly atmosphere and there was no pressure to rush our meal. It was a great evening.

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
