Visited this little gem with friends and we were all left pleasantly surprised. The menu has some old familiar Indian style dishes and some Nepalese dishes but you'll find that what sounds familiar tastes a little different with slightly different flavours, but all really yummy....More

First visit and won't be our last. Lovely friendly staff and nice atmosphere. Since we've never had Nepalese food before the waiter helped us choose our meal. We were not disappointed. The flavours are a little different to Indian cuisine and were a welcome change.
