Starter of prawns and mains of mixed tikka masala - enjoyed it all. Good portion sizes, attentive but not overpowering service.

Visited this restaurant having read rave reviews from previous customers so expected something out of the ordinary. Reception by staff was curt to the point of rudeness with no warmth nor greeting,and the eyes glazed over when I declined to sit in the window having reserved a " quiet table " earlier in the day. The tables already had three... More

Dined here in summer, and I must say, the experience was an exceptional one. It is about a 20 minute walk from the center of Farnborough, but definitely worth the walk! The decor is quite authentic and there were many Himalayan murals of the mountain culture. The food was really delicious and well cooked, and by far, better than Indian... More

Stayed at the Aviator and didn't want to pay their prices. Had a really great meal here with a couple of bottles of wine and still had money in my pocket when I left. Bargain.

Three of us had an eat-as-much-as-you can lunch under the watchful eye of several waiting staff :) In fact we didn't over-indulge as the food was fairly average fare, such as we'd expect in So Asia and similar establishments. At £9.99 per head we have no cause to complain. Presumably the evening menu would have the Nepalese specialities we'd expected... More

It's no surprise that the staff and food are authentic and while I found the food slightly mild it was good value and there is a nice atmosphere

From the moment we walked in the door we were made very welcome. We were quickly seated near the window and our drinks order was taken and the drinks arrived very promptly, even though the restaurant was packed, great atmosphere too. The menu's arrived and the choice was very different from other establishments we have visited before, but what a... More

The variation of dishes which are not just pleasant to the eye... More
