Some dumplings were brought to my table without being asked. We thought it was an offer from the restaurant but, at the end, they tried to consider that as my expense.. The rice, which is supposed to complement the dish, is not included in the dish's price (which rounds 13€). However this is only referred in the last page of... More

Thanks to our early arrival, we were the first table attended. The staff was very friendly and my friends recommended me some dishes. I had chicken with coconut and cream and naan bread. It was a very good choice, the meat was well cooked and the sauce mixed perfectly with rice. A very good first experience overall.

Stumbled across this 'little gem' of a restaurant with staff that were welcoming, warm and friendly. We ate an array of different delicious dishes (each one was exquisitely prepared and presented) - bursting with flavour. We were suitably impressed when the bill arrived - much cheaper than the food quality would suggest (outstanding value for money). As this restaurant is... More

The service was good, very nice staff, don't speak very good portuguese, but speak good english. The food was great, very cosy, tasty and spicy, and that naan was to cry for. Must go there again, to try... More

Don't get me wrong, the restaurant has a nice intimate environment (a bit old fashioned, though...), and the service was consistent, efficient and friendly. But all that is insignificant once you taste the food. All dishes were delicious!! Highly recommended!

The Restaurant lying down , one of the busiest street of Lisbon is best place to taste something different. The typical Nepalese environment (with bigger space these days) is where you can have taste from the country that lies in the lap of nature.The menu is inexpensive and foods are so delicious. Just go for it and try something different.

The restaurant is full of energy. I had a extremely delicious Nepalese meal out there. I recommend to visit once if you are looking to have a good change of taste.

Quick service, fresh ingredients, great spices give us amazing dishes. The waiters are so nice and the restaurant is very cosy and welcoming, you just have to give it a try. You won't be sorry for sure.
