I have visited this restaurant on a number of occasions and have always found it to be excellent. Whether it's for a New Year's Eve meal or a meal for two, I have never been disappointed. The service is good and the food brilliant.

When we arrived the restaurant had a good number of other diners. We were shown to our table, service is really friendly and welcoming. Good selection of food on menu. The food came out in good time, and was delicious!! If I'm in the area again I will definitely be back!

Perfect food, we went there after the Christmas collection and were so surprised by the quality of the food. It is our first time in a Nepalese restaurant. We will definitely come back. Special thanks to the owners of the restaurant, they are great people. We highly recommend this place! A fellow Rotarian
