Four of us went the other night. We had a nice experience, the interior and layout (remodel) is much better than the previous restaurant Metro Cafe.

East meets West influences- creative flavors on dishes that are traditional or called the same thing at other Indian restaurants, but more Nepalese cuisine.

We ordered -
Pickled Daikon - nice not too over powering (complimentary)
Chicken Momos-Steamed dumplings stuffed with chicken, curry spice, onion, garlic, and ginger (served with sesame-tomato chutney).

Samosa- Excellent and perfect batter ratio
Minced potatoes and green peas (served on riata and tamarind chutney)

Lamb Chhoila- beautiful small slices that was juicy and tender
Spicy lamb tossed with oil, ginger, and garlic, chili pepper

Shrimp Masala - creamy and rich very flavorful
Shrimp cooked with a creamy butter tomato sauce.

Vegetable Korma - very different sauce and flavor than other Indian places, this was excellent -seasonal vegetables cooked with coconut milk and

Paratha - So GOOD! Buttery, a bit dense great flavor
Chicken Saag- tasty

ALSACE, FRANCE- this was perfect with the food, drier and less fruity.

Pretty nice wine list, you can BYOW for 15.00 corkage two bottle min.

Overall this was a nice spot for four people to have a conversation over flavorful dishes to share. Not huge portions but intense flavors that were filling. The service was perfect.

Two bottles of wine and all the above- $136.00
