Review on Great Nepalese

Opened in 1982 within earshot of Euston station, the Great Nepalese remains a firm favourite with commuters, university types, back-packers and others in search of genuine food. Set up by Gopal Manandhar and his sons, it's an eminently likeable place bedecked with Nepalese memorabilia, photographs and colourful artwork.

The place also wears its Nepalese colours on its sleeve when its comes to food. Standard curry house favourites (tandooris, dhansaks, biryanis and the like) put in an appearance, but it pays to make a beeline for the authentic specialities. Highlights include masco bara (deep-fried black lentil pancakes) or momo (steamed dumplings) to start, ahead of bhutuwa chicken loaded with fresh green herbs or mutton ra-piaj.

The kitchen is also noted for its fascinating vegetable dishes such as allo bodi tama (potatoes, bamboo shoots and black-eyed beans), gundruk kp tarkari (Tibetan sun-dried vegetables and mustard leaves) and aloo kerau ko achar (a cold dish of potatoes, peas, green chillies and ground sesame seeds). Drink Kathmandu lager and finish with a devastating shot of Nepalese rum poured from a bottle shaped like a Gurkha knife.

    It's not Great It's big Big Threat

    It is not Great Nepalese it's big Threat, I was staying in property adjoining to this hotel owned by same owner. One we had a meal at this place but while going in my room I saw chefs from this hotel smoking outside. Their attire, look was very much dirty and looking at them one can understand that they are not following basic hygiene policies. And you cannot expect quality of food from a person who himself not keeping him clean. This is a big threat to your health at your own cost. So friends be aware while visiting next time.

    I also want you to alert on staying facility provided from this family, as if you are planning to recommend to your family or friends you should know the facts.
    This place is located at prime location but it's very unsafe to stay. The entrance itself is kept narrow and still narrows by an electric panel which I think has electric controls of restaurant his family owns just beside main entrance.
    Its a two story structure, ground floor 1 room, first floor 2 rooms plus kitchen plus two bathrooms and second floor 3 rooms. The room panels are made of wood and even flooring is made of wooden planks. You can easily gets disturbed if a guy sleeping adjoining room is snoring or they are having conversation in normal voice or even someone above your room is walking. It's really disturbing if someone is checking out early morning and moving bags and walking. Lot of movement happens as there are only two bathrooms/ toilets for 5 rooms ( 2 on first floor plus 3 on second floor).
    The steps are made of wood and narrow with width of 18 inches and that two in spiral shape. The structure has no lift, So moving out or going up is big challenge with your luggage. It is a big threat in case of fire to evacuate in such condition as if you manage to come down from death steps there is big challenge of narrow passage with electric panels. The adjoining Hotel is also a big threat for fire.
    Overall its definitely is an illegal construction made to extract money to take advantage of central location keeping guests life on a big threat. I am writing this review to alert future guests and also going to report this to regulating authorities in London. I humbly request past guests to comment on this and should confirm my observations. Request future guests not to put their lives in danger for sake of saving money. There are lots of safe options available in same area
