Such an unassuming place we nearly decided against going here but truly glad we did. The food was fantastic and really well priced. Bring your own bottle with corkage of £2 was great handy too. Much bigger inside than expected.

Nice, clean environment. We were originally seated at a table under a flickering light but were moved without any problem when we pointed this out. This table was wobbly but we soon fixed that with a leaflet I had in my handbag. Absolutely beautiful food.

As returning customers, the food and service were as good as ever. Beautifully spiced, flavoursome dishes and friendly attentive service. We would only ever visit here for Indian and Nepalese cuisine.

We really couldn't fault this place. We received a warm welcome from the staff, were given the choice of where we sat (perhaps because the restaurant wasn't overly busy) and found the service to be efficient but not obtrusive throughout. The menu choice was wide...More

" South West Indian restaurant shortlisted in British Curry awards 2013" (5 star Food and hygiene) Namaste and Welcome! Nepal is the country known as the birth place of Buddha, And country of highest peak in the world, Mt. Everest and great brave Gurkha soldiers.Nepalese cuisine has a unique combination of food from the tropical low lands to the cold Himalayan geography. This alone has played a major role in the eating pattern. Nepalese food is prepared using the most common spices combined with distinct Himalayan spice Timur (a cousin of Schewan pepper) and the herbs called Jimbu directly imported from the Highland of Nepal. As a consequence the unique Nepalese cuisine is fast becoming one of the world's favourites.
