Find this interesting restaurant, specialising in the cooking of Nepal, in an atmospheric basement close to Pulteney Bridge.
If you'd like to try cooking from the Indian sub-continent varying considerably from the Anglo-North Indian norm, this restaurant is thoroughly recommended. If you are seeking Vindaloo or Tandoori style dishes, this is not the place for you.
Starters such as 'Polayko Masu' grilled strips of spiced lamb with home-made chutney; 'Aloo Dum' delicately spiced potato and sesame salad, in a popadum basket; and 'Melekhu Macha' spiced, deep-fried salmon; set the style.
Perhaps to be followed by 'Bhutuwa' chicken, lamb or pork marinated in ground spices, then cooked with tomatoes, onion, garlic and ginger; 'Kukharako Thukpa' a main course noodle soup; or 'Chili Beef'.
The spicing of dishes tends to be mild to medium, rather than over-powering, allowing the flavour of the main ingredients to stand out.
Vegetarians will feel they have their own dishes, not just a token offering tacked on the end of the menu.
Service is friendly and relaxed suiting the setting.
Takeaways are offered between Monday and Thursday.
