We visited this restaurant on our trip to Calgary with friends. The staff was very polite and the food was really quite. My friends tasted Nepalese food for first time and they loved it. Momos are a must try!

A very interesting place, The mango chicken is amazing. Liked the shrimp and eggplant dish a lot. The lamb was not that tender. Good dumplings and chai teas. Friendly service, they are eager to help.

Went as a family and had a great time - the food was scrumptious and our waiter was very thoughtful and entertaining. I wish I lived around here and could come back more often!!
