Very friendly and welcoming. Really lovely Nepalese soup and curry. Such a subtle and interesting flavour and very very tasty. Good service too. I would recommend this restaurant to vegetarians and meat eaters alike as there seemed to be plenty of interesting choices

What a lovely lunch with my friend. £6.99 for a curry, rice and naan, kulfi or icecream and a soft drink. You really couldn't beat it. Just the right sized portion, tasty and good service. We both had the chicken jalfrezi and would highly recommend.
