Very good salads and dressings, also rice and soups are very tasty. During the winter times it is a bit cold inside. In the summer they have 2,3 tables in the small garden. I recommend this is much better alternative to the most exotic restaurants in Sofia.

We came here for lunch and I was not familiar with food from Nepal but was pleasantly surprised. The dishes are similar to Indian cookery but are less harsh and hot and much more flavoursome. Two of our party were vegans and there was absolutely no problem in getting dishes to suit everyone. The meals are surprisingly filling. There is... More

We felt we don't really need a started and were right, the main dish + some rice and bread was more that enough. Not an interesting choice of desserts. Will... More

I was in sofia for short visit and my friend recommend me this place. I love Indian and Nepalese food since I grew up eating those. On first I was skeptical about food since I got food poison trying Indian food back when I was travelling in Thailand so basically when it comes to masala food I stick to home... More

I have been in the restaurant for more than 3/4 times searching the the test of Nepali/Indian food. Every time I went, I felt like I am in home in terms of the test and the hospitality. The gentle smile of all the staff lured me to visit there time and again. Lamb curry, salad, Mo.Mo and all the foods... More

I have tried a lot of Indian restaurants in Sofia and I have to say this restaurant has the best food hands down. The spice level is fantastic, even the salad is spicy😁. The pricing for the food is reasonable for the amount of food you get and it fills you up. I would fully recommend everyone to go to... More
