Excellent Food!

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. :)

I have had dinner several times at The Kathmandu and every one of them was fabulous. The Indian curries are especially good. The Vimdaloo is excellent. The staff are very helpful with recommendations and they are always spot on. The dining room is pleasant and parking is no problem (at dinner time).

They had a good buffet with some unique dishes. It was very affordable and quite tasty. I can't say much about the dinner service as I have only been for the lunch buffet but the staff were kind and attentive. The food was nice and had some good nepali cuisine but sadly no Momos.

This is a nice restaurant in a small strip mall with a wide menu. It has typical Indian fare, but also has Nepalese dishes. There is a lunch buffet that is quite good (not Sundays). Food is very good. Cost is quite reasonable. Atmosphere is not fancy, but there is Nepalese decor to fit the theme.

It may be tucked into a parking lot in front of a mall yet Kathmandu brings an authentic experience that is difficult to find in the Mountain West. The menu is made of Nepali and Indian dishes (many, probably most) vegetarian. The food is simple and delicious, service courteous and fast. This is a place where you can;t go wrong.

The staff was very polite and the food was excellent. I especially liked that the food was spicy. A lot of places dumb the spice down, as in "hot" is barely any bite. (Maybe "Americanize" is the word I'm looking for? :P) I ordered a medium spice since this was my first visit and it was perfect for me. Spicy,... More

While visiting Salt Lake City for business, I sought out the best local restaurants. As a die-hard fan of Indian and Nepalese dishes, I was excited to learn about The Kathmandu. There are two locations in Salt Lake City so I decided to visit the one at 212 S. 700 E. After walking several miles to the restaurant, I had... More
