I visited the restaurant in December 2014 for a Christmas party with work colleagues. The interior was very nicely decorated with various Nepalese artefacts on the walls and traditional Nepalese music was played throughout our visit.

Food was of good standard but waitor hovered over our table once we had finished our meal making us feel rushed to leave! We weren't able to enjoy the meal as a result! Not very good manners at all!

We have now eaten here every time we visit Barnstaple. There is a very good vegetarian choice and in particular the Nepalese dishes are different from the usual bog-standard Indian choices with some different and subtle spices. My favorite dish is the chilli paneer, although this time it was much milder - so ask if you like your food hot!... More

Came for lunch and had the buffet selection. I had the lamb and chicken dishes plus roti, really nice rice, dhal and small side salad. My partner had the vegetarian selection which she really enjoyed. At under eight quid each, this was a good value, tasty meal. Drinks were reasonably priced too. I'd have preferred one of the meat dishes... More

Staff brilliant, food excellent and nothing is too much trouble. We asked for extra chilli's and no problem at all. Great with a group of friends but equally perfect for couples too. Thoroughly recommended
