Stumbled upon this restaurant and was very pleased we did. Yes they asked "did we have a booking", we hadn't and we were lucky to get the last but one table. None of us had eaten Nepalese food before and we all loved it. The staff are very helpful and extremely polite at all times. The food was beautiful, we... More

Went here after a full day of exercise gagging for a good curry - and didn't get one. We were early and first people in. Always seems strange when asked if you have booked and the place is empty - but it quickly filled up. The service was good and food arrived quickly although it was only just warm and... More

Ate with a friend as he'd eaten in a Gurkha restaurant elsewhere I highly recommended the cuisine. What a disappointment! Where on earth the good reviews come from on this place is beyond me! The place is small and feels like a basement, a basement with a takeaway in it. Looking past that I assumed the food would be authentic... More

We made an effort to find this restaurant when in Brecon because we wished to support the Gurkhas living there. It is tucked away almost opposite the Museum and is very small. We went at lunch time during the week and found only 5 others there. It's also rather dark as there is no natural daylight but the eyes soon... More

This small restaurant was recommended to us by the owner of our holiday accommodation. It is really on a corner and lacks daylight. The food was good, with interesting flavours, neither of us having tried Nepalese food before. The nettle curry was very good, my only criticism being that, although I ordered it "extra hot", it really wasn't spicy at... More

We had two different starters and main meals, all very tasty. Good Nepalese beer available, very reasonably priced, friendly staff. Truly Nepalese atmosphere, with their music, paintings and old-fasion interior. Felt just like in Pokhara.

After being delayed on a walk, they were more than happy to move back our reservation. Good start. This is a small restaurant, with probably slightly too many covers, for the square footage, but that seemed to create a better buzz. The waitresses were super efficient, friendly, but didn't rush you. This was the first taste of Nepalese food for... More
