Decor was nice. There are lots of wonderful framed prints of Nepal on the wall. Restaurant is small but cozy.
The service from presumably the owner was nice.
This is a very good restaurant that offers great value. I wouldn't hesitate to come back again. The dishes appear to be low in sugar and salt. The natural flavours of the food comes out. This tastes like home Nepalese cooking but I never went to Nepal so I can't say for sure. The use of msg and other preservatives was low.
The food served here is better than most Indian restaurants.
What we had:
Aaloo achaar $6
Chilled sesame-lemon potato salad flavored with timmur (Himalayan peppercorns) and fenugreek
This was a mild yet flavourful dish. We liked it except we did not expect it to be cold.
Kukhurako maasu $12
Boneless chicken simmered in a curry of onion and spice.
This was a very nice dish. We asked for medium heat for all our dishes but medium is quite mild to our tastes. This dish went very well with the rice.
Lightly seasoned potatoes simmered with bamboo shoots and black-eyed peas.
This dish was too mild to our liking. The bamboo shoots were nice. The potato presence was not strong. Overall it's a dish that needs more flavour.
Large (Daal bhaat tarkaari) $15
The very definition of a meal in Nepal. Your choice of vegetable, chicken or goat curry accompanied by daal, with steamed rice, roti and achaar (chutney).
This was our favourite dish. The goat was quite good. The meat was not gamey at all. The roti, daal and achaar were quite good.
