We just went to this place after it finished its renovations. It was great to walk in and have someone greet you and let you know that they are so happy that you are there. The group we had, had many dietary issues and restrictions and our server never showed any frustration what so ever. The restaurant was busy and he gave us extra time to go over the menu with him. He was extremely accommodating and friendly. I cant say enough about the service we received.

by looking at the outside you would never know how good this place was, but its a complete gem once you are in. The new renovations make this place look very sharp. If you are second guessing whether you should go, don't. I hope they are able to keep up such a high level of service and pleasantness.

The food itself is just outstanding, the Basa Fish done on the grill was a favorite for sure. We would most definitely come back and bring others as well.

Thanks for a great experience.

Hidden away in a nondescript strip mall, marvellous authentic Himalayan cuisine,exciting explosions of flavours . The lunch buffet is superb, with multiple dishes to treat your palette at a very reasonable price.

Authentic Nepalese cuisine ??
In Calgary ??
YES and YES !!
But the food and service, what are they like ?
EXQUISITE and WARM !!

In all seriousness, not the largest in terms of space so call and make reservations but the atmosphere is cozy and truly the dining experience is savoury in terms of service and the cuisine.

The best naan in town, culinary curries crafted creatively, and a menu that stays true to what it suggests.

Hands down one of my favourite places in Calgary. Gone there for all occasions- always perfect !

On Saturday evening, we rushed to this place to taste great food, alas it was closed for renovation. Cost $30 to cab fair and disappointment. Learnt important lesson to phone for booking before riding.

Three of us went for the lunch buffet mid-week. Parking was difficult but we managed to get a space when someone was leaving. The restaurant was very busy but we were lucky enough to get a table. They had a great selection of dishes all tasting great and at $15 a head it was very good value. They did not skimp on the food, constantly refilling the buffet trays. I have found that many Indian buffets try to cut down on the meats etc. but not here. All in all we had an excellent lunch. On my next visit I will make a reservation to ensure getting a table.
