Is this place deffo not open for luch?
It isn't open for lunch either, sadly.
I am going on Friday and more excited than I probably should be.
Make sure you have a naan!
Hope you enjoy it. I've really enjoyed the meals I've had there so far.
Do they do delivery ?
Do they do dumplings, a bit like gyoza? Not sure what I should be asking for.
Have a look at Tek-Monkey's email when he went and also my one some time before that for a few dishes either of us tried.
Also tell the staff what you like and ask them what they recommend. They're very helpful and informative.
Service can be a little slow because I think they are creating each dish as it is ordered so allow a bit of time. This isn't necessarily an issue if you're happy to wait and provokes conversation if you're sitting at the shared table(s).
Finally if you want your own table I would recommend calling them to reserve one.
They definitely do takeaway for collection and were talking about delivery but I don't know if this is up and running yet.
There was an advert for a delivery driver in the window in the week before they opened.
They seem to certainly intend to do it, but, I suppose, they need to be confident that it will work efficiently first.
Cheers. Table booked. Fussy OH may not be that happy as his go to is a chicken tikka masala!
Don't worry they do some Indian style dishes for the peasants as well.
They told me that was to cater for those who don't know what Nepalese dishes are. I replied that would be the majority of Stafford unless they work in the Beaconside area.
Tell the OH to be adventurous and try something new
If you are specific about what you like and don't like they will find you a dish to suit your tastes.
Haha, if only. His parents are coming too, and his Mum is very worried about what she can eat, so I know who he gets it from.
They sell a bhuna and a korma, no idea what they are like though as we went straight for the stuff that was a bit different.
I will be too
There is a menu online if you want to check out what they may like to ease any concerns.
Like I say it is a step into something new but nothing to be worried about and I'm sure you'll all have a lovely evening.
Get your OH's Mum talking to the staff about the wood and the walls and Nepalese culture and she will be fascinated by what they tell her.
"What do you think I should have?" is my standard approach in "unknown food scenarios" - it usually works.
That was also my first question, followed by what is a traditional Nepalese dish?
They then asked what I usually like in terms of flavour and spicey heat and suggested a number of possible dishes.
An alternative start is "I'll have what you would have", which should be fairly safe in A G.
In some other food cultures that might mean that you end up with a plate of squid testicles, but Nepalese food is in what we might call the "Indian Spectrum" and cultural shocks are reasonably unlikely.
It's an iterative process on both sides.
My boss, who recently did Everest Base Camp, said he never wants to hear the words Daal Bhat again, so I guess that's the traditional food.
