I have always loved Kathmandu,but the last 2 times I was there the service was awful. The last time I was there my saag paneer was terrible and runny. It tasted uncooked. I am bummed because I really loved this place. I am not sure what happened, but it isn't good.

Convenient location. Wonderful food with an adventurous menu. I have experienced the buffet and found the selection to be nice, however, many of the items I did not taste as a "picky eater."

We have enjoyed the buffet many times. There are always many options, both vegetarian and not. It is not only delicious, but a very good value at $10. It even includes a beverage. It does encourage overeating. The menu items are equally good. I have eaten here with a group of 25 people and everyone loved it.

Stopped here based on reviews. Sooooo worth the drive. Had Everest curry, chicken momo, a kids tikka bites meal and an aloo dish. Will be coming back.

I don't know how Bombay House is rated higher than Kathmandu! My husband is a native Brit and Indian food is his comfort food, with the Kathmandu being his hands down favorite in Salt Lake. Service is awesome; they never try to give me the wrong order and insist I ordered it, like they do at Bombay. Trust me, if... More

I am happy every time I come here. Consistently amazing dishes and appetizers. The lunch buffet is my favorite. The service and staff is always great. They put a lot of care and effort into everything they do and it shows.

We had a family celebration at The Kathmandu and wasn't sure what to expect. I haven't heard of this restaurant. I was very happily surprised! EXCELLENT Food, LARGE selection and the hosts were very friendly. If you enjoy Indian food and haven't tried The Kathmandu - Do! We will go back often.

Between the atmosphere, and the food, and the service, you will not be disappointed. I admire the employees focused and happy, they treat the customers. Our food came quickly, tasted wonderful, and we get to take a lot of leftovers home. Only one word of advice, if you want it only a little bit spicy, choose mild not medium. :)
