Had a wonderful lunch here on their terrace in this out-of-the-way spot. Lamb was excellent, as were kebobs we ordered. Their chocolate dessert with salted caramel whipped cream is to die for - I would go back just for that! Excellent service.

We ate at this little restaurant after reading positive reviews and although we weren't disappointed it didn't wow us. We arrived at around 7.30pm and the place was empty apart from the owners and a waitress who I assumed was their daughter. A party of...More

Essentially this Restaurant has a a pretty traditional Savoyard Menu that is interspersed with Nepalese/Indian cuisine however each has been subtly influenced by the other. I'm not usually a great fan of fusion food however the quality and attention to detail of the dishes really...More
