My profile

Opening a restaurant has always been my dream but never felt right until I moved to Iceland in 2018. My family had played a big role to turnover my regular life, as we opened a small family restaurant in Reykjavik, Iceland. My chef journey started in 2009 when I moved to England at 17. After finishing college and getting experience from the hotels, restaurants and especially working with some fantastic chefs made me ambitious. I always wanted to try and do something new. So I put my hands on Nepalese cuisine.

Why Nepali cuisine

In my opinion, not many people around the world knows about Nepal, its culture and Nepali cuisine. Nepali cuisine comprises a variety of cuisines based upon ethnicity, soil and climate relating to Nepal’s cultural diversity and geography. It’s a journey and Nepalese Cuisine is a way to nature. We dwell in the flavour of its spices and delicious is everywhere when the food is delightfully prepared and served. All the spices and herbs used in our cuisine are good for health and better for all.

Our vision

Our main objective is to provide firstly a top quality food for our guests and secondly to promote our Nepali cuisines. We try to make our food as typical as possible for a recognition of our culture and all we desire is a happy guests.
