Have been here 20 times in past 6 months. Flavors are remarkable, Some spicy, some not... They can vary the spice level, so don't worry about that. Just get ready for an exciting culinary addition to your list of Portsmouth Favorites !

I'll keep this one pretty short and sweet. Food was excellent, fresh ingredients, served hot with complex taste. Service was not only efficient, but really enjoyed the conversation and got a bit of lesson about Nepal. For the quality of the place, the prices were...More

OK, so the goat chili is not a very hot Bahamian vegetable but rather a four legged, eat anything, ruminant based dish with heat graded 1-10 depending on your taste and bravery. Welcoming staff who spent 10 minutes educating us on the menu and expressing...More
