This visit was our third in less than two years. The service is great, the food outstanding and the pricing reasonable. Despite a location that may seem lacking, a stop here will be worth your time.

there isn't anything we don't like about their food and usually we get the buffet which is always fresh and hot.

Bland Indian food that needs spices to get it upgraded. Too much salt also. I would recommend trying at least once to make your own decision. 10% higher than several others in town.

The place is not the greatest but the food is excellent. We usually take out. Lunch is a great deal if you get the buffet. I am in love with the tandoori chicken and the curry. Naan is great too, get garlic!

Tell me the last time you enjoyed Nepalese cuisine. That's what I thought. This place isn't just a unique destination though- the food is scrumtrulescent. Truly a gem in the beautiful metropolis that is Rio Rancho.

Have only dined inside the restaurant once and had a very good experience with great service and excellent food. However, we do takeout quite often for family get togethers. The portions are good sized, and fresh. We particularly like the Spinach with potatoes, the chicken curry and the rice, however that is based on our preference. In general we have... More
