I loved their food I tried their Thali, I love chilly in my food and loved the different validation of spices and chilly in every item, if you haven't tried Nepalese place, thus place will give you an experience closer to authentic Nepalese.

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the

throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
