First time at this nepalese/Indian restaurant and was delighted with the range and quality of the food. Makes a nice change from some of the slap dash joints in Maidstone. The service was a little slow - so not ideal if you're in a hurry.

We had a meal here not knowing exactly what type of food we would get. Our meals were mouth-watering and beautifully served. As we went in at opening time (5pm), the restaurant was very quiet. Only negatives here were the poor lager and the view...More
