Absolutely let down. Didn't even turn up and claimed they didn't get my order. Never again. Rang just eat who confirmed that they had accepted the order but restaurant claimed they didn't get it. Wasted 2 hours waiting and ended up with no meal. Joke

I probably wouldn't sit in to have a meal as the place needs serious revamp, it's grim and uninviting. However, the food is to die for. We always order for take out or delivery. This is a little gem, the only Nepalese cuisine in the area. I'm tired of box standard poxy tikka masala all places across the road sell.... More

This is a perfect example for saying don't judge the book by its cover. While I do agree both looks and organisation could do with bit of work. Food is par to none. You can taste freshness even with the smell. Such is the flavours of dishes that if I were a millionaire I'd visit Manchester every week from London.... More

Went to this restaurant this evening, its exterior is not very inviting but dont be put off. Inside decor is in much need of updating however food was delicious, fresh and extremely tasty, This is a family run business and the waiter;s mum does all the cooking 10/10 to her. Very friendly and hospitable, will most definitely be returning. If... More

I have been eating here for 10 years and the quality never changes. Many may be put off by the appearance and sometimes by having to wait for the food, which i should point out is always cooked to order and so is very fresh. If you are looking for a real taste of India with a Nepalese twist this... More

Choice and quality of food is striking, authentic-seeming Himalayan fare, freshly prepared to eat in or take away.

We get a takeaway from gurkha tandoori most weekends and weve never had a bad one. Food is fresh, full of flavour and authentic. We generally get the set meal for two which is great value. Includes two curries loads of starter bits and sides with a couple of bottles of cobra thrown in, happy days. As for dinning in... More

We ordered from here last night. The worst meal and experience we have ever had the displeasure of trying to eat! Ordered at 7.45pm to be advised that there was a 2 hour wait for "food"(if that is what they call it). Waited until 10.05pm until calling them to ask where our order was. I got the typical taxi firm... More
