“Great flavours”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2014

We had been meaning to give here a try for some time, and finally managed to the other day. We got there a little while before they started serving, so had a drink in the bar and waited. Good size, clean dining area, with partially open view of the kitchen. Nepalese food apparently takes its influences from a number of different cuisine’s. The result is the food is full of flavour, but not overly hot like some Indian dishes.
We were brought complementary poppadoms while we studied the menu. To start my wife had the Aludum, a traditional Ghurkha potato dish, I had the Momo, a steamed chicken dumpling dish, both were very nice. For the mains my wife had the Himalayan chicken, slow cooked chicken with ginger, garlic, onion, tomato, and coriander and Nepalese fresh masala. I had the Hill-Boy Special, marinated chicken tikka cooked with garlic, ginger fenugreek leaf and touch of chilli, yogurt and coriander. Both dishes were really lovely. We finished off with one of their tasty ice-creams. The drinks are very reasonable here too. We will be returning at some point I'm sure.

We have eaten here on many occasions and never been disappointed. The food is lovely and the staff all very polite and helpful and the decor is pleasant.
The Ghurka special platter for 2 is an amazing starter, as is the Chhoyola. The garlic chilli chicken and the Himalayan chicken with its lovely blend of spices, are 2 of my favourite main courses,

Can't wait for our next visit!

An absolute awesome place, the staff are second to none, they will bend over backwards to help you in any way they can.

The first impression was "this place is way out of civilisation" when we arrived back after our day at the races it was "WOW"

The restaurant was full, the bar area was full of people waiting to eat and that is an awesome sign

We sat down to eat, the service was fantastic, the food was the best i have ever tasted, this was a curry to die for and then some.

After a great nights sleep in a very comfy bed next stop was breakfast, this was perfection

Well worth the money (to cheap) and will deffo be back for more

We've often passed this place on way back from the forest, decided to give it a try, wasn't dissapointed. The staff were very friendly and on the ball, food was excellent and very tasty. Would recommend a visit. Plan to go back soon.Located just outside Chepstow towards Lydney

I have recently stayed a this inn. It is easily in reach of Lydney by car, and is close to the Forrest of Dean. The room I was given faced the road which conveyed average traffic, but was not noisy. The bed was comfortable, wi fi available, television, tea making, and room service if needed to change linnen, towels etc, and food in the room if needed. The wardrobe was very small for a double room, but was the largest that would fit. Staff were very pleasant and owners mixed in with the guests. Food, 5 star rating was good, served hot and freshly prepared, However the menue was limited to gurka preparations, no English food except at breakfast and must say that was excellant. All round a very nice place to stay for the price, and I would stay there again when visiting lydney..
