Loved the authentic look of this restaurant. I felt like I stepped through the door and into Nepal! The food was good, but not the best...although the menu was diverse and offered several things I'd never tried before. Service was ok for this price point. We'd do it again...and try different new dishes every time.

We popped into Kathmandu for dinner with a group of 7, including a 3 year old. The food choices are quite varied from Nepalese, to Indian, and also some standard Chinese/Asian fare. Service was so-so as our waiter seemed to not really care if we were dining there or not. The food itself was decent, and the vegetarians in our... More

Having moved from an area of the country where excellent Indian restaurants are plentiful, we were eager to try our first Indian food in this area. We stopped into Kathmandu Cafe for buffet lunch and were not disappointed. Every dish on the buffet was excellent. It was beautifully prepared and a feast for the senses. The service was warm and...

We went here on a recommendation. So glad that we did! The food was absolutely fantastic. The portions were generous. Our waiter, Bobby, was a pleasure. He explained everything and was super excited about all the food that they serve. Definitely worth eating there. We will be back!

You might overlook this restaurant among all the trendy joints that have 45 minute waits, but do try it and be rewarded with excellent, tasty and fresh food. Our waiter asked us to place our spice tolerance for each dish on a "scale," and it worked perfectly. We all loved our dinners and would very happily eat here again when... More

I've only ever had their lunch buffet. It's different everyday and always interesting. I always leave satisfied. In winter, their chai tea is excellent. For most part their service is good
