Very friendly staff nothing is too much trouble. Clean and well decorated. Authentic Nepalese food on the menu portions are large and the individual flavours come though nicely. Well priced and recommended.

First visit and chosen based on local recommendations and Tripadvisor status. We weren't disappointed. The starters and mains were all really tasty. Naan breads were especially good, as was the coconut rice. Also clearly popular with the locals, as it started to fill up as we were leaving. Will definitely be returning.

Very nice atmosphere and great service. Food was really nice, you can ask to make it spicer if you prefer your food to be very authentic, the staff are very polite and make sure you are happy.
