Went here on a Tuesday night having seen that they provided a $20 sample menu and could bring your own wine for a small corkage fee. Got to try a range of very tasty dishes at a bargain price.

OK so it's not the hippest place on the street but that's not always what you want. This place has a lovely romantic charm about it and a perfect atmosphere for date night. Food, drinks and staff all fantastic and really reasonably priced as well...couldn't recommend more.

We haven't been here for a while, and while walking up Chapel Street in Prahra, I saw Gurkhas and said to hubby, let's go and try again. The meal was so good and value for money, the staff were so friendly and helpful, attending to every need. The food was so yummy, highly recommend the chilli beef, and the stir... More

Attended a family function here last week and found it to be a disappointing experience. Food was served raw, and nothing done to replace it. Everything was overseasoned and a lot of it way too spicy for the kids to eat, despite kids being charged full price). It was pretty badly organised and wasn't a function that ran very smoothly....

Went as a group of 4 for a catch-up dinner. We shared a couple of mixed entrees and shared 4 dishes plus rice. I've been once before, ages ago, and fondly remembered the goat curry and again it didn't disappoint. Can also recommend the calamari (which I wouldn't have looked at if one of our group didn't want it) and... More

Visited her with a work colleague and walked in without a reservation. The restaurant is located in Chappel street in trendy Prahan and is an easy walk to St Kilda Road.The staff were friendly and obliging. The decor has great Nepalese/Himalayan feel which includes the option to sit on cushions on the floor and low tables. The food is typical... More

This is my 5-6 visit to this restaurant but my 1st review. I have always found the food really good especially the chilli chicken and shared entree. We always get the seated area at the front, on the floor so the kids can roll around or move around. The restaurant decor is good and the waitresses are helpful.

First time trying this place recently with a few friends. We ordered the banquet menu as we thought it would be a good way to sample Nepalese food. The service was slow. There were only 2 other tables occupied. Definitely service level can be improved. The food was a saviour...otherwise it is not a worthwhile place to dine. It was... More
