I love this place, have been a couple of times and although it's not the most modern restaurant and it's always packed, the food is excellent and the service is great. I love the sizzling dishes and the currys are brilliant. Also love the gurkha beer and the hats that the staff wear!

Sorry I cannot agree to the good comments the restaurant has collected on TA. This Sunday lunch did not come up to our expectations at all. First and foremost the hygienic standards were very low. It is impossible to enjoy if you find hair in food and drinks and large brown stains on the toilet towel. The place urgently needs someone who takes notice of the decay of decorative and functional items all over and action against it. The music was shrieking on one hand (I have no general dislike of Indian or Nepalese tunes), the stereo had a technical problem on the other hand and chopped up the continuity of the music, but nobody seemed to care.
The waiter wore a winter jacket even so it was not cold, which gave a strange impression.
Finally the food was pretty average in taste, quite insipid, missing the destinct edges that make asian food so enjoyable.
