fantastic food and great service. highly recommended

the food here is certainly worth the wait for. you can either eat in or get a discount of your meal for collection. They will cater for Indian cuisine if you prefer, but they specialise in Kathmandu cuisine and i highly recommend it. The staff are very polite and professional which adds to the... read more

During our visit we waited 45 minutes for our starters then a further 45 minutes for main courses. The food was very poor. Maybe the establishment is resting on its laurels because it has very little competition. The business would not survive in a city or large town with other restaurants. Surprisingly the staff were not friendly. My experience with... More

Not only does the Kathmandu serve the best, tastiest and most unusual dishes (nepalise cuisine is superb) in Derbyshire (in my humble opinion) the staff are extremely courteous and very attentive. If you have never experienced nepalise food, then I strongly recommend this establishment. The take away service is also excellent.

Great place with good staff, been here several times and food is always excellent when sitting in eating, however I have had a couple of takeaways and would not recommend this as food was no where near as good as when you sit in, takeaways were watery and bland (this was not once but last couple of times so will...

I have now visited the Kathmandu restaurant twice and on both times have had a great experience. The first was two couples and we were served promptly and courteously and had the pleasure of eating some wonderful food. On my second visit it was with a large group (16-18), the restaurant didn't ask for pre-orders or a deposit which I... More

This is a delightful restaurant, with delicious food, which is subtly different from traditional Indian cuisine. It's suitable for families or couples, not necessarily a major celebration venue, but very pleasant with charmingly polite staff. The "Ghurka" beer goes wonderfully well with the spicy Nepalese dishes. It's a converted public house, and the decor hasn't been dramatically changed, it's clean,... More

Tried the Kathmandu on a Monday night as it gets very busy at the weekend. Very pleased we did. Great reception, choice of table and wide choice of delicious food. Between the three of us we had a selection of different starters and main courses. All were presented beautifully and tasted fantastic. Highly recommend the Nepalese dishes.

We went here on a Wednesday night, no need to book just walked in. The place itself was very nice and clean and tables nicely laid out. We were warmly greeted and the service was very good. I ordered no36 and the food was excellent and nicely presented on the plate. We both enjoyed our meals and would happily go... More
