Relaxed quiet supper

Delicious food, good friendly and efficient service. No frills but a relaxed place to enjoy a meal. Also good for a family meal.

A wonderful Nepalese-style spread with great food and a friendly host who made everyone feel welcome. It is always a pleaaure to walk into a busy restaurant and find excellent, tasty food. We can definitely recommend tryubg the wide variety of flavours available here.

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.

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
