Heard good things about this restaurant good food but we were positioned at a small table adjacent to the bar so cramped and lots of footfall the restaurant is very narrow and seating limited in fact we observed a party of 12 had booked but half the party were at opposite ends of the restaurant

A gem of an unassuming restaurant. Wonderful authentic Nepalese food at bargain prices. Well worth a visit, subject to two conditions: you MUST book, and they don't take cards.

Do not take card payments, I didn’t know this until we arrived so it was a quick trip to the nearby cash point. It would be helpful to read this on the booking form before you visit.

Food is excellent and staff are friendly, but the service is slow and the staff have to be asked for more drinks and its quite hard to catch their attention. There was a very noisy table next to us, but that wasn't the restuarant's fault but it spoilt our evening a bit. However, the food is well worth trying and very good value and staff might improve.

Second time at Annapurna and this place is just the best. Food to die for, the flavours and quality of all the dishes are remarkable. You may have to wait a bit for service, they are busy for a reason, when you do get served all the staff are delightful, charming and engaged. Your taste buds come alive and like us you will hope that you will soon be back. Just wish it was nearer as 50 miles each way is a bit of a trek...always worth it tho.

Excellent staff and food.
Unfortunately they did not have a record of the booking made by open table booking service. Not their fault and they were very accommodating.

We booked a table on the strength of the good reviews we had read & we werent disappointed. The staff were lovely, made suggestions about what dishes to order & every one was delicious. The food is cooked to suit your preferred amount of chilli heat. I would thoroughly recommend the Annapurna & will definitely return the next time we visit Folkestone.

Heard a lot about Annapurna after reading about it online and the trip advisor reviews.

Had a friends birthday coming up so decided to see if we could book a table. The whole night was brilliant. The friendly nature of the staff, the welcome, of course the food and the fact we were treated like friends or family more than customers.

Can't wait to go back and I recommend it without hesitation. A brilliant little gem in Folkestone

You will not be disappointed by this restaurant, the food was really authentic Nepalese and the service was really good. One of our party has an allergy to onions and the waiter took the time to explain what would be good choices.

Food was excellent and the service was quick, if only lacking a slight bit of finesse. However this didn’t impact on the overall enjoyment.
Highly recommended.

Really delicious food, we particularly enjoyed the prawn tempura and vegetable pakora. They allow you to adjust the spice level too.

Booked a table for 4 at this Nepalese restaurant, the food was outstanding and they catered well for the gluten free vegetarian within our group. Although the restaurant wasn’t busy, it perfect for us, as this was our first time eating such food and we didn’t feel that we were inconveniencing anyone as they wasn’t too busy (kind of like individual attention). Nothing was too much trouble and we really enjoyed our time here. I would highly recommend Annapurna for a great place to celebrate a special occasion and look forward to returning soon.

We went to Annapurna in preparation of going to Nepal for a holiday. The service we received was fantastic. Tej helped us decide on our meal by asking what we liked (and didn't like) and if we had any allergies. He suggested a selection of starters which he chose for us, and then helped us choose our mains, including how spicy we wanted our food. Our meal was absolutely delicious, and far exceeded our expectations. At the end of the meal, Tej showed us a large photo of the Annapurna region and where we would be trekking. We had a great evening and will definitely be returning!

We visited this restaurant on Saturday night with friends so had a table of 4. Never eaten Nepalese before so the menu was different to normal. However, the waiter was fantastic and explained all and gave us recommendations. The food and service was first class.
Excellent venue, great atmosphere and the food was outstanding.
Would recommend and we will certainly be going back again soon.
Book it and experience it !

Great Nepalese curry, all freshly made, at very reasonable prices. Really though, it's all about the momo. Homemade Nepalese dumplings in a variety of combinations - all delicious.

This was our first visit to Annapurna and we thoroughly enjoyed it. On arrival, we were shown to our table and the waiter took the time to explain in detail the dishes on the menu to us. The food was lovely and really good value.
If you want authentic, tasty Nepalese cuisine with no frills and friendly service you will enjoy this experience.

We arrived and were seated outside as requested, but next to a bin. Another group there were blasting music out of their phones. The menu was overly long and confusing (I appreciate, and love, that it’s world cuisine but an explainer of what the items actually were would be very useful for those unfamiliar with Nepalese cuisine). The waitress was very attention, but overall the ambience couldn’t keep us there. We left before ordering.

I only gave 3 stars for 'ambience' but it is perfectly fine - not anything fancy. The back garden looks lovely and on a warm summer evening may warrant at least 4 stars. Everything else is excellent from the food to the service and we plan to return as often as possible.
