Having eaten here several times the quality is always the same; excellent. it is always well cooked and spiced, and the service is excellent. Price wise it may be a few % more than usual but it is worth it.

A really lovely meal and good service. Prices were fair for central Birmingham. The menu had a few interesting Nepalese dishes. I had the momo (I'd recommend it). To get that 5th star I'd want to see a few more of those. Overall though a great restaurant. We'll definitely be back.

We came here at lunch time. Its a great little restaurant, nice decor and very clean. We had the express lunch. The service was excellent, and the food was delicious and flavoursome. The portions were not huge, but for the price of the express lunch more than generous in my opinion. We will definitely visit again

It would be easy to walk past this amazing restaurant and miss it as there are no signs visible until you are level with the front entrance. Once inside, the food and service were fabulous today, tasty and plenty for a lunch. We will definitely return!

My wife and I went there for dinner last week, hoping to try some Nepalese dishes. Perhaps it was ignorance on our part but the menu consisted 99% of Indian dishes. Also, the restaurant had a strong smell when we walked in but luckily, this either disappeared or we went noseblind. Ordered Chatamari for starters which was nice and we... More

Excellent service from all staff, food was delicious, fresh, tender and the flavours fantastic. Really interesting blends of herbs and spices. Surroundings were lovely and very calm and comfortable for a quiet meal. However, we were early and the restaurant was certainly filling up as we left so best to book. We will return as soon as we can and... More
