“Unusual!”
Reviewed 8 May 2014

Food was nice if a little different. Was very busy and service suffered. Was left for too long eating my main with a spoon despite specifically asking for K & F. Tea also took too long as partner had long finished her coffee. Waitress arrived with the next course while previous plates were still there twice!

“expecting something really good!”
Reviewed 7 May 2014

Stopped here one evening on the way back from Yorkshire to Suffolk. Glad to get a table so quickly! The restaurant looks lovely and is in a good location. Inside it is decorated nicely, quite simple, almost plain. The staff are very welcoming, friendly and attentive without being overbearing. We were not kept waiting at all, and the food and drinks were all served fairly soon. The food looked lovely and was very fresh but the flavours were a little bit lacking and somehow a bit bland. We were happy with the meal though, but it just didn't seem to be what we were expecting.

“Simply brilliant!”
Reviewed 1 May 2014 via mobile

Visited with friends whilst staying in nearby Rutland and have to say that this is probably the best Indian/Nepalese food I have ever had (and I have had many from different places around the country).
Simply amazing food and very attentive staff, what more can you ask for.
All four of us in our group were very impressed.
We will be back next time we are in the area.

“Disapointing. A pretty bog standard place really.”
Reviewed 26 April 2014

My wife and I visited for my birthday on the saturday 19th of April. I was interested in visiting because of the nepalese part of the menu. In reality the majority of the menu was pretty bog standard indian. We had starters which were ok but nothing special. Then for mains we both had a curry and shared rice and a naan. It was all ok, but not much more than that. Price wise I thought the starters were pretty pricey but everything else was pretty much as you'd expect in stamford.

Atmosphere wise it was very busy and the tables were squeezed in together. Not the place for a quiet, intimate or even private meal. We could hear everything that was being said by the two ladies next to us.

I wouldn't probably return. Though i'm not sure if it's any better than any of the other indians in Stamford.

“Lovely food”
Reviewed 22 April 2014

Visited this restaurant for the first time last night for my birthday. We had been warned of slow service - but weren't in any hurry. However, 3hrs for papadoms and a main was pushing it a little.

The food was lovely but service was poor. There were only two waiters working and granted they were busy, but seemed to forget about those dining at the back of the restaurant.

Slightly disappointing experience.
