Our groups of 7 had a great evening at Chautara. With entrees featuring meats, fish or tofu, everyone can find something they like on the menu of Nepali dishes. Three people chose chicken dishes; others had beef or goat. I selected the seasonal beet salad....More

Chautara serves fairly typical Indian/Nepalese food, but prices it like it is atypical or special. Their least expensive thali plate (one of the cheapest meals available in India or Nepal) is $25. The worst part of this restaurant occurred this evening. I went there to...More

I stopped here recently on a walking food tour with Madison Food Explorers. It is DEFINITELY someplace to come back to. The mango lassi was refreshing. Many of the items of the menu sound great. It will be a hard decision!
