Flavourful food. Slow service The dumplings were a delight and the currry was very nice but not as spicy as I thought given the 3 chiili guidance the service was v slow but in some ways this is good as you are not rushed. The place was packed so reservations might be wise.

We have never seen a Nepalese/Indian restaurant before. Usually back in England the Indian restaurants are Kashmiri/Bangladeshi cuisine. This was our first taste of this sort of cuisine and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The popadoms and dip selection was pretty average however and we have had nicer in other restaurants. We had the vegetarian mix to start which was fantastic.... More

we came here without booking on a Saturday evening.As we arrived before 7pm we had the all inclusive menu .Free popadums and a potato dish was a nice touch. The restaurant filled up very quickly. We felt a bit rushed at the end but not seriously so. Will return !

Decided to try an Indian meal for lunch and fell on my feet at the first shot. The lunch offer which is available from 12.30 to 14.30 Mondays to Fridays, is exceptional value at €9.99 and a great introduction to Indian food. This the price is for 2 courses and, in fact a little taster with naan bread was also... More

I've lived in Dublin over two years now and it would be unusual to go two months without stopping in. The early bird dinner is excellent value, and every time I've been too late to avail of it, they've been kind enough to offer it anyway. The staff are both courteous and generous offering complimentary side dishes and drinks frequently.... More

Popped in for my usual 'Billy-no-mates' meal. Restaurant was clean and well staffed and even at 1845 was reasonably busy, suggest larger parties should book in. Bit on the pricey side (33 euro's) but food was very good. probably best curry I've had for a while, and if you check my other reviews you'll know I am an addict. I... More

A big fan of Nepalese cuisine this is the third such restaurant I've visited in Dublin. After having already booked ahead we were promptly shown to our table and presented with menus etc. We opted for the meat platter for two for starters which arrived on a sizzling hot plate. It was a very tasty selection but a few less... More
