“Excellent, Original Food”
Reviewed 2 September 2014

You must either be mad or very sure of yourself to set up a new restaurant in Stroud Green Road. There are at least four other interesting places to eat within 200 metres, as well as about a dozen others in close proximity. Nepalese food differs a bit from Indian food because there is less reliance on ghee (I think, though may have misunderstood!) which results in old "favourites" such as Lamb Biryani tasting different and newer (to me) dishes such as Holy Basil Chicken.
Some starters were difficult to describe. I had Momo Veg which are described as being" the most popular fast food in Kathmandu Valley, Nepal". They were like a cross between ravioli and a type of Dim sum with a dip.
The Nepalese beer is £4.95 for a large bottle. I know nothing about décor, but it makes a change sitting a well lit room without flock wallpaper. The staff were excellent, and kindly packed up all the bits we couldn't eat so they could be taken home.
We used a Groupon voucher, but there was also a 20% off all food offer when we went, plus numerous deals for takeaways and local delivery.

“Great Nepalese food”
Reviewed 10 August 2014

This place is great. Nice Nepalese and Indian food with great flavours. Good service too. I highly recommend the Lamb Nepal main course and the Brinjal Bhagi. A great addition to the Stroud Green restaurant scene.

“A different kind of Indian (it's Nepalese after all)”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

Nice new restaurant with friendly staff and excellent food. Though they serve a few standard Indian dishes I do recommend to go for the Nepalese / Himalayan stuff.
Food it is similar to Indian cuisine, but they use herbs and spices and sauces and dips that make a difference.
Great choice of naan bread and Nepalese beer.
