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

The most terrible restaurant I've ever been to! Waited over an hour and a half for our food to come and then was told the main course was ready but not the starters, so we had the main before the starter! Bizarre!! I had the shaslick which had just two bits of lamb which were inedible and couldn't cut it.... More

It's a bit tucked away, so may miss out on passing trade? However its worth seeking out as the choice of curries and meals is very good indeed and well priced. Be brave and try some curries with a twist!!

A party of 8 for a family celebration in a restaurant we have used before turned into an evening of delay, bad service and lukewarm food. Put upstairs in a separate room after we arrived at 7.30 and after going down to enquire about the delay we received our drinks at 8.30. The starters arrived at 8.45 and the main... More

I have eaten in the restaurant before and its been excellent, if you look at all my previous reviews they are generally positive, but my experience last night was so bad I felt the need to comment. It was quite honestly the worst take away meal I've ever had of any sort. All of the dishes were watery, the dhal... More

We have been to this restaurant many times & always lovely food,the service can be a bit slow because they always seem busy or at least at weekends,but if it's good we don't mind waiting.
