Had dinner here and enjoyed both the food and the atmosphere. Had the spice level on my food at 6 out of 10 based on the waiter's recommendation - which was definitely hot enough. The spicy pickled veggies (not regular pickles) were about the same...More

From the moment we stepped inside, we knew we were in for something special. The aromas were just amazing. The cooking area was the first thing we saw before climbing the stairs to the seating area. The service was outstanding. We were given an explanation...More

We were led upstairs to the dining room area. The host is charming and always seems to be smiling. The table ordered dumplings for an appetizer. They were delicious. I then ordered the Gundruk soup as a starter and requested 3 for the hotness. The...More

Everyone we met was so friendly and helpful, and every bite of food was perfectly flavored. We had the Lime Basil Lamb curry as well as the lamb momos and of course the amazing 500 yr old soup. A wonderful addition to Portsmouth downtown. Will...More

At an upstairs table by the window, two of us enjoyed a delicious lunch with expert smiling service. Perhaps if it had been busier, we would not have been quite as pampered—I don't know. Anyway, we ate Vegetable Momos (dumplings). Shrimp Tarkari, Fish Tarkari, delicious...More

Durbar Square is a jewel of a restaurant. It was cozy and clean. But, most importantly, the food was delicious. Our table shared two lamb dishes. Both were delicious and entirely different. You can choose spiciness from 1-10. I highly recommend eating here.

The main dining rooms are upstairs and pleasantly cozy. Nice to be up away from the draft of a front door on a winter's night. At street level, you'll see only the takeout area. Everything here was a delight: food, atmosphere, background music, the tender...More

For the record, as of August 2016, there is now a fabulous Nepalese restaurant at this address. Many of the old reviews (and the menu listed here) are left over from Michele's the previous restaurant. I hope that... More
