Excellent food, atmosphere and staff. We have sat in, attended their Nepalese Earthquake fundraiser and had takeaways. No complaints even minor. Never thought another Asian restaurant would add to our enjoyment of eating out in Stamford, but this one does.

The best Nepalese cuisine and authentic said our friend who has been to Everest base camp.8848 is the height of Everest hence the name. Excellent service, excellent menu - a thoroughly excellent experience.

I don't bother going to any of the Indian restaurants any more, the service is absolutely wonderful, they are always solicitous and charming. The food is much more interesting than the usual coloured takeaway slop, with delicious fish and vegetarian dishes.

Decided on a spur of the moment night out with friends and ended up in here. Having never been before we were delighted when the food was beautiful and the staff were friendly and efficient. Will definitely return.

The staff are very friendly, and the food is amazing. Only down side is when dining with a friend and the hot towels came out she believed these were marshmallows and put one in her mouth. Perhaps they should explain before hand? or maybe my friend should have more common sense? but overall a tasty meal!

Great authentic food always freshly cooked, would highly recommend as there are a few unusual dishes on the menu and not your standard Indian restaurant.

Six of us visited on Saturday evening, food was very good and fresh, all of the staff were very good and professional & courteous, apart from one, who happened to be English, who accidentally dropped dirty knives & forks over my friends wife, which was not a major problem, but did not utter one single word of apology, or even...

Decided to book a meal for four at this well talked about restaurant but what an experience it turned out to be... Shown to our table at 21:00 which we waited to be laid up then only to be greeted with a blob of the last persons curry on the table cloth.. In a very hot room at the front... More
