Great food. Always visit whilst in York. The tables were very crowded on this occasion, however, well worth the experience! Highly recommend!

Good food, but maybe slightly overpriced for some items. Alcohol options aren't great. But we like going here for comfort food and something a bit different.

The table was a four person table separated to accommodate two pairs. This meant we were very close to the people next to us but it wasn't too bad and the food made up for any awkwardness.

Simple, excellent restaurant.
Chilli momo’s were my favourite starter, quite spicy, delicious.
Followed by Annapurna Chicken and Ghurkhali Pork. Medium sized portions, we had 3 between 2 plus rice.
Accompanied by a reasonably priced Cabernet Sauvignon.
Will be back in a week.
Excellent value and has a welcoming home cooking feel

My university aged son and I loved this restaurant! Food menu a little different from a standard curry house, portions generous and everything super fresh and made in-house. Kind and thoughtful front of house bringing a family owned restaurant alive.

The best Nepalese restaurant I've been to in the UK so far! The food is delicious, very authentic. I recommend the Dal Bhat Tarkari with lamb, it's a perfect amount of food. The menu is varied and you're not swamped with pages upon pages of choices. We visited on a a Monday evening and I was surprised to see the restaurant full. It was moderately busy but still quiet enough to chat, great music on in the background too to match the paintings and decor.

Overall a great meal and I would definitely visit again if we came back to York!

Fantastic food in a friendly and bustling restaurant. We were very impressed to bag a table for 10 people at this delicious restaurant. Service was great, the food was delicious and there was a huge range of options for everybody. I would highly recommend you try!

The restaurant was busy but we got our table at the time booked for.
However it was so noisy you couldn’t have a conversation without almost shouting at each other.
That alone would have been ok, but the food was very disappointing.
We had yak & yeti beef and chicken with rice .
The rice was under cooked making it too risky to eat and very dry . The meat dishes were no better really dry and chewy.
To cap it all off we were billed £30 more than what we had ordered, will no apology.
Not returning.

Thought we would try as we were interested in Nepalese food and we were not disappointed...the food was to die for. The only criticism was all our meals didn't arrive together and I had almost eaten mine before the last one came out

I really enjoyed the chicken dish I ordered but the vegatarian dish of greens was very over priced. We did think the menu was lacking for vegans and vegaterians.

Food was amazing service was Ok. It's one if them places that squashes everyone in for Max Profit so very impersonal as other customers are on top of you.

The place would have gotten better reviews from myself had we known it was cash only and they don't give change out. That part annoyed me

Very pleased with the fast service even though we seemed to arrive after many guests had got there. The food seemed freshly cooked, and offered some nice differences from a general Indian restaurant, although it had some of the same staples.

The food in here was absolutely amazing, and in a much more laid back atmosphere than some Indian restaurants can be. The staff were lovely and the food came out very quickly. Been before, and will definitely keep going back!

The food is very tasty although rather greasy as ghee is used for cooking. Presentation is by traditionally dressed waitresses. A very compact restaurant which was full so not an intimate setting. Had to show top table email booking as proof we had a reservation.
