I went for the first time on my 18th birthday with very high expectations as family have been raving about it for months. The atmosphere was relaxed but bustling and friendly for all customers (family, friends, couples, etc.). The food was amazingly flavoured and filling, you get your moneys worth!
We didn't make a big scene of my birthday as we celebrated earlier, but briefly mentioned to the young waitress that we'd need 3 out of 4 wine glasses, due to the birthday; at the end of our outstanding meal they brought out a large slice of cake (with candle) and a small message from the chef, "happy birthday to you", written in chocolate. Certainly a great way to make your customers feel special!
All staff were friendly and sincere, very hygienic conditions and overall a very welcoming restaurant.
I will be sure to tell everyone about this little gem in York city centre as it has now become my favourite and most trusted place to eat. There is something for everyone and you wont be disappointed.
I congratulate the owner and the hard working staff as they have created a lovely and peaceful place to eat where you can have a good time and know the standards are always above the majority of York's other restaurants.
No words can possibly do them justice, absolutely outstanding, Well Done!x

We read reviews and thought we would try for lunch. Excellent tasty momos, not had since we were in Nepal, we then had the chicken noodle soup very good, very similar to food we had on a trek in Nepal. The food was good value with friendly service, the owner came and chatted to each table.We will definitely return as is just a little taste of Nepal in York.

We were not sure what to expect and on reading the menu, we could not work out whether meals needed rice or Dahl. In the end we chose a starter each and for main course one mixed veg rice, a Dahl and with those a main course dish each (one lamb and one chicken) and we shared it all between the two of us. It did not seem like too much, but we were full afterwards.

The food was really flavoursome. (It may be best to experiment a little with a spoonful each of main course curry and rice then pour a spoonful of Dahl over before eating.)

The Chilli Chips - not what you might expect as a restaurant speciality! Traditional British chips stir-fried with onions, sweet peppers and chilli in a 'secret' sweet chilli sauce. Not too spicy hot. Lovely comfort food! You may crave them for ages afterwards.

We have booked to try one of their set meals - look out for their, December only, special set 5 course meal about £20/head (December 2013)

The food was great. We had "Y&Y beef" and "Everest lamb". The latter was on the recommendation of other people on trip advisor and it was lovely (nicely spicy too).The guy who owns the place was really nice and it was a quieter night so he came and chatted to us at the end of the meal which was nice. The front of the restaurant looks down onto goodramgate, the decor and music are pleasant which made the meal even better.

No complaints and a great choice for a quiet meal in York.
