Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

The onion bhaji (starter) were gooooorrrgeous - a really light and crispy batter. Followed by a king prawn korma with a peshwari for my mains and this creamy coconutty combination hit the spot for me

Absolutely beautiful food. Everything we had (lamb korma and lamb karahi, cheese & garlic and Peshawari naans) was super fresh, fragrant and full of flavour. The owner came and chatted with us for a while before we ordered. She was super friendly and helped make...the whole meal feel special.More

Our first visit here. Outside of the city with easy parking and a welcome greeting from one of the owners. The food was excellent, fresh, well spiced and flavoursome. Good sized portions and a friendly atmosphere. Will definitely be coming back to try some of...the other Nepalese specialties.More

After a long time ago first seeing this advertised we decided we'd give it ago. We weren't disappointed! The popdoms were crisp and chutneys were excellent. The tarka dall, and the garlic naans were yummy. The only thing was the red dye added to the...meal, but that's it! Simply superb.More
