Fantastic

Beautiful full of flavour food lovely friendly staff I would highly recommend this restaurant. Although quite small you don't feel as though you are eating on your neighbours table, the menu is quite limited but the standard of food is excellent we will definitely be back.

Fantastic selection of both Indian and Nepalese cuisine, all very well cooked. Only had better Nepalese food in Nepal itself. Staff are also very friendly and helpful. You must visit!

Good service, great food. The waiter was very helpful, and all the dishes and drinks were excellent. The decor is appealing, and the restaurant is much bigger inside than it appears outside

Tried this restaurant several times since December 2015, and been disappointed with the quality of food. There is a huge mismatch between the description of dishes and what is delivered or presented. When the restaurant is busy, dishes are rushed and under seasoned. Starters seem pre-prepared and artificial. Traditional Indian dishes do not taste authentic and seem to be made... More

Pre-Christmas visit with friends, excellent choice of food with staff taking their time to explain individual dishes, allowed us to be adventurous and try something different. All washed down with Gurka beer .... nothing better. Best in Loughborough

Been here twice now, medium size group from work and then as a couple. The staff are very helpful and answered the many questions we had and helped with recommending dishes. The presentation and quality of the food was very good and varied in taste/heat to suite most palates. There was a little wait between service but it was worth... More

Reasonably priced Indian restaurant. Ambiance is a little lacking but the food, oh the food, is spot on! We had Lamb Pasanda - sauce was a little on the sweet side for me but great all the same. The lamb was outstanding. You could tell it had been slow roasted and, unlike other lamb curries, it melted in the mouth... More

I went here for the first time with a group of friends and it was by far the best Resturant I have been to in Loughborough, the staff were extremely friendly and helpful but more importantly the food was delicious, all of the dishes that I tried, I loved. Also it only came to approximately £10 each! and I will... More

The Nepalese dishes and curries here are truly excellent. Don't waste your time with a boring Balti or a mundane Masala. Actual Nepalese food is highly recommended. And don't forget a good Gurkha beer to go with it! As a Loughborough native, I thought I best give this place a go and I will 100% go back and would recommend... More
