We love this restaurant. We have been coming for the daily lunch buffet on and off for a decade now. The price is fair. The staff is lovely with our kids. The food is why we come back so regularly. It's home style Tibetan food- more like mild Indian food than anything else- chicken tandoori and curry, lots and lots... More

Nepali food might be described as a cross of Indian and Thai cuisines, which might be obvious considering the geography of the region. This place offers a very broad range of menu items that covers it all, and has plenty of vegetarian and vegan options. The portions are fair and the prices are really affordable, and best of all, the... More

We had a table for 4, and order all kinds of dishes. We started with dumplings, chicken and yak. Then we went on to green beans, Baigoon Aloo (eggplant), chicken dish, shrimp dish, and bread Apricot Naam. I found the dishes tasty. The foods reminded me of food from an Indian restaurant with a different slant. We brought along a... More

We loved this place. The cuisine is similar to Indian food but a little different. Very realizable prices and plenty of food. The service was good. It was just a fun and good change of pace. We will be back

Went for lunch buffet. Food was good, but tasted like average Indian food -- nothing special. Nice decor, though, with Tibetan artifacts on one side and Nepali on the other.

If you like Indian food then this is a good place to try. The dishes are similar with some interesting twists. A special treat are the dumplings which are well worth trying. The service was a bit aloof but all in all we had a decent meal.
