Given a list of places to eat on the Sunday of the bank holiday by our B&B hostess (The White House down by the river on Wye St - excellent, pleasant hostess, but she said she might be retiring which will be a shame... - sorry I digress) , we plumbed for the Nepalese because 'that sounds interesting, never tried that before'...
Just a short stroll from the market square, hard to miss on the left as you walk down the hill.
We hadn't booked but that was no problem (they were moderately full). Laminated paper menu, place mats showing views of Nepal. Looks a bit basic maybe..
But the staff are very friendly and attentive, and the food was excellent. I was expecting Indian type food, and looking at the menu you can see similarities. But when it comes you appreciate it is actually quite different, and really very good.
Washed down with Gurkha beer of course, but wine, Lassi available.
Unfortunately I live in West London, otherwise I'd be in here frequently!

As per the other reviews - great food and lovely staff - a super evening out. My wife is allergic to gluten so we were please there was advice in the menus and from management in person so we ordered with confidence. Unfortunately when we got back to our hotel - a major reaction to gluten for over two hours that completely spoiled a lovely evening out. There was a slight mix up between waitress and kitchen with one dish so we are wondering whether that was to blame. None the less - this should not happen in 2017. Management please double check what is being served so this doesn't happen to others - not a pleasant experience for a sufferer to have to endure on a night out.

Returning home a little late whilst on holiday, our dinner options were running out when we found this place. How lucky we were!

The welcome was warm, friendly and efficient, and nothing was too much bother. Nepalese food is an interesting cross-over between Chinese and Indian styles, but with its own twist nonetheless. We opted for a set menu, and the plates appeared in very good time. The quality was high and the flavours well rounded, with starters being brought steadily rather than all at once (so we didn't feel overwhelmed). Portions were well-judged with 5 of us almost but not quite able to finish everything.

I gave four stars because I have tasted (slightly) better Nepalese food. However, this restaurant has nothing to be worried about and the attitude of the staff is excellent. Well worth a visit.

Looked up Indian restaurants in Ross-on-Wye on the internet as a place to break our journey. Saw a Nepalese restaurant, and tried to access the website to no avail. However, not deterred we called in to be greeted by the exceptionally friendly and polite waiter who was probably the owner. The place was reasonably full for about 8.30 pm on a Wednesday evening. Nepalese is similar to Indian, but somehow the spice mix makes it taste just a little bit different. We quite often journey along this route to Cardiff and shall definitely call in for a pack of Mo Mos for the freezer. They taste like a cross between Indian and Chinese dumplings - brilliant.
