We were the only people when we arrived for dinner and later on 2 more people came in so it was very quiet and peaceful. The restaurant is basic but cosy and we were served quickly and attentively. Although we didn't wait long for the food, it was definitely being cooked in the moment because I could see someone chopping in the kitchen and all the smells started coming out as they were frying stuff. There are lots of options and you can have Indian or Nepalese food and specify how spicy you want each dish. I ordered chicken masala/vindaloo and my husband ordered chicken cooked in a garlic tomato sauce, both came with rice and we ordered Peshwari naan on the side. The portions were plentiful and very tasty, they got the spiciness of my dish just how I wanted it and the naan was perfect- very aromatic and just the right texture, slightly toasted on the outside and chewy on the inside, it was the best part of the meal. In total we ordered the 2 main dishes which come with rice, 1 portion of naan which was enough for both of us, one small bottle of wated and half a litre of beer and it came to 34 euros which was very reasonable for the good food and good service.
