Good food, large portions - Edit

Really good! They have lots of vegan options, including a separate vegan section as well as other options scattered throughout the menu. I opted for the veg sha phaley, which is a handmade bread with vegetable filling. Imagine a calzone or empanada with veggies inside. It was a super generous portion, with two giant stuffed breads when just one would probably fill most diners.

I really enjoyed it. The outer crust was crunchy and flaky. I can't be sure exactly what the filling was, but I suspect it was a mix of greens, onion, and herbs. The filling itself wasn't super flavorful, but that's okay, because the dish is served with a trio of great sauces: spicy chili sauce, sweet and sour chili sauce, and black mushroom sauce. The sauces were all delicious, and I especially enjoyed the spicy chili, which was super fresh and hot.

The interior of the restaurant is simply adorned yet tasteful. I like the cozy wooden booths and the colorful lighting. They also have some nice photos of the Himalayas around the restaurant.

Overall, a great experience. Looking forward to coming back again.

Pros: Large portions, good value, Tasty food
