Really friendly staff and great food. We were made to feel welcome and the waiters were very attentive. A real gem. We'll be coming here again if passing through Folkestone.

We rang late, but they were able to accommodate us. The staff were lovely and welcoming, without being intrusive. The menu was extensive and a great mix of Indian and traditional Nepalese cuisine. Had never had Nepalese food before, but this was delicious and I will definitely be having it again. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Although we are local we had never been to this restaurant before yesterday but will certainly return. The food was excellent and well presented. The waiters were friendly and attentive. As others have said, ignore the location as this restaurant is well worth a visit.

We only found this restaurant on the web and had we passed it by first we would probably not have gone in - it's in a small local shopping area, but the taxi had already gone! We had booked earlier in the afternoon, and we were glad that we had because by the time we got our starters all the... More

What a treasure find! This restaurant is a gem within the valley in Sandgate/Folkestone. We happened upon it by reccommendation and I have not stopped reccommending this place myself! Upon arrival you are gently ushered to an immaculately laid table, crisp linen cloths with polished glasses and cutlery. The service here from arrival to departure was a pleasure and a... More
