Our waiter gave us great advice in choosing from the menu, and we were not disappointed. He did miss one item in our order, but when reminded about it, he brought it... More

It can almost go unnoticed in the small strip mall in SW Calgary. We tried it with Skip the Dishes so cannot comment on the restaurant itself. The food arrived in protected dishes with lots of bread. The food was delicious.

Wonderful place to eat, meet old friends, and share a meal with colleagues. Always enjoy the Nepali dishes, atmosphere, and opportunity to speak Nepali with the persons serving us. The owner always greets us as like family. ..... look forward to the times when they serve beer from Nepal, or alternatively India.
