Christmas Eve family dinner at Himchuli was a great experience for the entire family. The vegetarians were well catered for and the obliging and friendly service was very appreciated. Delicious Nepalese food enjoyed by all.

Got takeaway here, the place doesn't look much but the Butter chicken is amazing!!!! Also the garlic/cheese naan bread was delish too.
