We were given 3 local recommendations to this place which were backed up when we got there. Lovely staff and amazing food, just don't order too much as they give you lots and it is all fantastic.

Tucked away down a back street you will find this Nepalese restaurant. We have been to this lovely little place several times and it has become a firm favourite for good hospitality and quality food. It always seems to get busy so booking is advised, even on a weekday. Food orders can take a while, however it is worth the wait! A good idea is to have a little knowledge of the foods you might be interested in as guidance can be a little thin on the ground, however the staff are very friendly and attentive.

Had a meal here last thursday. The staff were really welcoming, shaking my hand on entering the restaurant (usually you only have your hand shaken when you have paid!). The food was very good, packed with strong flavours. However, the knowledge of the staff left a little to be desired. We asked them for direction since we have never eaten Nepali cuisine and were simply told it can be hot or mild - I could have told them that! We mentioned that we were vegetarian and could they suggest a typical meal and the waiter suggested either the lamb or beef...

Other than that, the meal was great, drinks very reasonably priced and everyone made us feel welcome. We'd definitely go again when in the area.

This was a good find, the staff were very attentive early on but when it got busy (which it did even on a Tuesday) they forgot about us for quite a while, this happened twice! Having said that the food was good and made up for the slightly lax service, would go back.
