“Wonderful food, highly recommended”
Reviewed August 25, 2014 via mobile

A group of friends and I ate here and were extremely happy with the food and service. A great mixture of Nepalese and Indian food. Well worth a try.

“Very good! ”
Reviewed August 11, 2014 via mobile

The restaurant is very close to the Edinburgh campus where we stayed.
The waiter was very kind and helpful and food was really great! It was our first try of Tibetan cuisine, but it's basically pretty close to Indian's. 35£ for 1 appetizer, 2 main dishes whit rice and 1 naan plus 4 drinks.

“Delicious!! Recommended.”
Reviewed August 9, 2014 via mobile

Went here for the first time this evening, after finding places in town nearer the festival venues were either full or not accepting bookings. I'm very glad we did! Service was excellent and attentive, but the main draw to this restaurant is the fantastic tasty food. After some lovely starters, which both had outstanding presentation, my wife went for the sea bass main course, and I the Poleko Khukura (Marinated chicken and lots of spring onions with Nepalese herbs and spices then cooked in thick sauce). Both were absolutely delicious, as were the accompaniments of coconut & pineapple rice with a kulcha naan. Portion sizes were more than ample too. We will DEFINITELY be back.

“Superb food in an unexpected setting”
Reviewed July 31, 2014

I have given this restaurant 5 stars for a few reasons. Firstly, the place is immaculately clean and well presented in what from the outside looks pretty ordinary. Secondly, the young Nepalese waiter, Bibas, was friendly, attentive and knowledgable about the menu and wines and thirdly, the food was simple but absolutely superb. This is the first time that I have eaten Nepalese and if this is the standard of food on offer I think I may just have to visit Nepal!! Do not miss it - slightly off the beaten touristy track, but all the more reason to visit.

“Great for sitting in or takeaway.”
Reviewed July 29, 2014

We first tried this restaurant after finding it on justeat, and while it is a little pricier it was so much better than anywhere else with a similar menu that we have tried it has become our go-to option for takeaway.

We have eaten in the restaurant twice as well, and while we agree with other reviewers that it can feel a bit quiet, the food is exceptionally good with attractive and functional presentation.

I think more of us would have ordered dessert if they had offered us menus after we finished our mains, but when we eventually asked they were unique and very tasty.

I am sure we will continue to eat here.
