Just discovered this wonderful place last night, located on 17th Ave and 31st St SW.

Showed up to a nearly packed restaurant at 6:30, fortunately our friends had made reservations, and what a nice experience it truly was.

The staff were all over-the-top friendly, courteous, and attentive, they made it very obvious that our needs were their only concern. I talked to one of the fellows and apparently the place has been opened for just over a year or so.

Now for the food. It was all flavoured wonderfully. This was my first Nepalese food experience. If you've never had it, it's kind of feels like a fusion between Indian and Chinese (which makes sense geographically), however definitely leans far more to the Indian side. Excellent grilled meats, and combination of spices and curries, whether it's hot and spicy or creamy curries.

Finally, I enjoyed it so much that we decided to go back today for their lunch buffet, which was also excellent. An excellent selection of flavourful food for $12.99.

While I fear giving away a rather unknown gem, I couldn't help but pass this one on and wish these folks the best of success.
