Although small, this Nepalese restaurant is by far my favourite place to eat at lunchtime. The staff are very friendly and have better memories than me: I like to eat here about once a month but often don't and despite this they always remember I don't like coriander as a garnish and the chef serves me a special plate without...

The venue is small, as it was a cafe before it became a Nepalese restaurant, but the decor is bright,and welcoming. The meal was good value with a comprehensive range of curries, and more traditional Nepalese dishes, but beware of the hot green chili dishes, as they bite back with a vengeance. There is a comprehensive drinks list. My wife... More

We loved this little gem near Maidstone West station. Starters were excellent but main meals of Tandoori sea bass & monkfish curry were even better. Add in the tasty vegetables (we loved the 'ladies finger') & this was really superb. The staff were friendly & the meal was not overpriced. Could this be the best place to east in Maidstone?

Me and my partner went to this restaurant on bank holiday Monday in August and due to the weather was the only two there; this didn't dampen the attitudes of the waiters, they were lovely, very friendly and attentive. The food was superb, full of flavour and thoroughly enjoyable. I will definitely be returning to try more of the lovely... More

Tonight was our third visit and again we thoroughly enjoyed all four meals. The menu has some familiar dishes and some interestingly unusual ones too; we ordered some of each. The Momo and Choyla starters were very good, as was the tandoori chicken. Order some noodles as well as rice to go with your mains!

The food in this place is pretty good - close to very good but the service wasn't as friendly as it could have been. A little abrupt and I think that was because it was quiet and it was later in the evening so probably a little demotivated and wanted to go home. If we hadn't of felt rushed, and... More

Went for lunch, again, brilliant value, great food - perfectly cooked curries for 5 hungry people. The lunch offer is exceptional, service is great and the food is consistently perfect.

This restaurant consistently produces high quality, great value food with brilliant service . The vegetarian options are wide and different from the usual brown curry offerings. I especially recommend their chick pea and potato and their aubergine curry. Their garlic naan is buttery . The portions are huge so order carefully if you don't like waste. Seating is a bit...

After recommendation from friends and reading reviews on trip advisor I was expecting this to be a really nice experience and I wasn't disappointed. Whilst the restaurant is small, the services was attentive (but not too attentive), the food was prompt and very tasty. It was very reasonably priced too. Would very much recommend it for a lovely evening out... More
