Bit of a questionable location near some shady cafes in the Leuven train station area, but don't let that ruin your appetite: great food and friendly owners.

We tried some mixed starters including momo, samosas and tandoori chicken, followed by a main course of sizzling lamb accompanied by nan bread, rice and a variety of fresh sauces. Food was delicious and spicy (but not too spicy - more according to European standards ;-)). Stay away from the tourist trap restaurants in the center... this authentic restaurant is highly recommended!

Nicely decorated restaurant just in front Leuven train station. When you enter, you immediately travel to Nepal thanks to the beautiful and colourful paintings on the walls, the statues, and the furniture.

The Indian and Nepalese food is really good and tasty, spicy, but not too much. Every dish is served in its traditional container. Portions are quite generous, but everything is so good that you won't have difficulties to finish your plate! Very large choice. Try the sizzler or the kadai (with lam, chicken...) or vindaloo. Veg food also available.

Very calm and quiet at least for lunch. Discrete but polite and friendly owner and waiters.

Strongly recommended
