Absolutely love the place. I nice selection on the menu with friendly helpful staff. Have eaten at the restaurant and I also order using their take away facilities. They deliver promptly and that is no mean feat as my residence is not the easiest to find. The meal is always piping hot and the bag loaded with extras. Keep up... More

This was our first visit and we discovered the restaurant on TA. Don't be put off by the location in a 60's housing estate - the venue in itself is classy with a very welcoming staff and a clientele who appreciate fine authentic food. It's not your regular Saturday night beer and curry house. We knew almost nothing about Nepalese... More

We have eaten in and taken away from here for over 7 years. I don't think we have ever had any poor food or experience. Their biryanis are always tender and fragrant and the chicken pokhara is probably the best tandoori chicken we have tried.

Good service friendly staff. Have tried some of the house special meals and found them to be very good. If not on menu always ask if chef can do it for you. You will often see Gurkha people eating here. Good for takeaway as well

I have eaten here several times over the past few years, and every time it is better than the last. The momo have to be ordered, these dumplings are delicious! The Keema naan also comes highly recommended, as does the Nirvana chicken, which has a subtle heat and fragrancy I have never experienced anywhere else. The service is great, and... More

This was honestly the best Nepalese/Indian meal my husband and I have ever had (including those we had on our trips to India!). We have nothing but praise for this little gem! We are new to the area and with me having an intolerance to Wheat, putting trust in a new restaurant can be a big deal. However, the staff... More
