Indian curry house doing mainly Punjabi dishes, with an added Nepalese angle to the menu.
This recent addition to the Southside's Shawlands area specialises in Nepalese food and, as the geography would suggest, this means there is an East Asian influence running through the cooking. There are dumplings, sweet and sour dishes, spring rolls and black beans sitting alongside more familiar Indian-influenced dishes such as chicken tikka masala and saag paneer. The Heart of Nepal section of the menu features Manchurian veg, a satisfyingly thick soy-dashed sauce over lightly spiced vegetable dumplings. The lamb in a slow-cooked Himalayan gosht just melts away under the fork. Both dishes are refreshingly light on ghee or oil. The venue has a charming family feel about it – it’s a simple dining room draped in square Nepalese-style bunting and there is a street-food-like pace to the business as takeaways and sit-ins are served with efficiency. With offers of great value set meals, it is little wonder it is already abuzz with diners on most evenings.
