Read good reviews on here thought I would try the Indian because I wasn't from the area. Sat down popadoms came which wasn't the best to start as soon as we finished main dishes came which personally though the meat in the dishes was cheap really chewy and wasn't cooked right through garlic naan was crap and to top it...

Friends dragged a large group of us to this "fabulous Nepalese" place they'd found right across from Colston Hall. I hadn't been too happy with the places we'd found so far in Bristol--as much as we like the town--but we went. And we're we ever glad that we did. The food was terrific, the servers accommodating and knowledgeable, and prices... More

We stumbled upon this place prior to a concert. We were not disappointed! The surrounding service and food was excellent! The menu did appear more Indian than Nepalese but I'm not expert. Definitely worth a trip.

4 of us ate here prior to seeing a show at Colston Hall, for which the restaurant is very conveniently sited. As time was fairly tight, we didn't have starters, but went straight for the main courses, and I have to say that we were all impressed with our choices. My lamb biryani was very tasty, and not at all... More

I like Indian food, and faced with the opportunity to try something slightly different we went to the Kathmandu. It's the first and only Nepalese restaurant I've been to, so I didn't know quite what to expect. The restaurant was almost full - it was a Saturday evening. There was no problem with not having booked, the waiter took us... More

We visited Bristol in April 2014 and chose the Kathmandu because of its Trip Advisor rating. We were certainly not disappointed! The restaurant was quiet but the atmosphere was still really good. The service was excellent and we were attended to well without feeling like we were being pestered. The whole place was very clean and tidy, including both the... More

I came here on a Saturday night without a booking with 5 friends. We were seated fairly quickly and bought drinks to our table. I ordered a Nepalese dish that the waiter recommended and it was superb. Everybody in my party was very happy with their meals. We all had at least 2 drinks each and rice and sides to... More

One of the highlights of our 3 day break in Bristol was to enjoy a good curry so we were really looking forward to eating at the Kathmandu after reading such great revues on Tripadvisor. We can only assume that the chef wasn't the same on the night we went as the food was extremely disappointing and did not reflect... More
