Have been using the Katmandu as our local take away for a while now and have only been disappointed once (when they put mushrooms in one of the dishes which was requested without.) Decided to try eating in for a change and got a lovely table on the balcony overlooking the river. service was prompt and most of the servers... More

We visited for the first time with family over the bank holiday weekend based on a recommendation. We were not disappointed, this restaurant is absolutely superb. It serves all the classics, but most impressive is the range of Nepalese dishes - all really well spiced and just a bit different. Everything is done well from the poppadoms on. The staff... More

Authentic food & a welcoming host, what more can you ask for! Nice family run joint that lives up to expectations and all at reasonable prices. Most definitely worth a visit when in town.

Kathmandu say they've been voted as one of the top 20 Indian Restaurants in the UK. So I was expecting something pretty amazing. Unfortunately I was slightly disappointed. The food was nice but no better than my local takeaway which doesn't claim to be in the top 20 etc. The decor was tired looking and the toilets were filthy. I... More

I have eaten here several times and the welcome never diminishes, nor does the quality of the menu and the food served from it. A small dining room (with an air of intimacy if you ask for the area at the far end) staffed by charming and attentive waiters. If I'm planning on going out for a meal, this is... More

Went for my wife's birthday. To be honest it is one of the best meals out we've ever had. The staff were extremely friendly. The food was delicious. Would recommend it to anyone.

Having read the amazing reviews and it being stated as in the best 20 in the UK, we were expecting so much more than we received. The service was quick and everyone was helpful and friendly. The decor wasn't the best, but passable. The menu was extensive, maybe a little on the expensive side for the quality received. I don't... More

I can sum this place up with one word, EXCELLENT! Excellent decor, excellent service, excellent food. The restaurant had a very comfortable and welcoming atmosphere. The service was spot on, there when you needed it but not annoyingly in your face. The food was devine, and plenty of it!!!! I can 100% recommend this restaurant

Voted in the 20 top Curry restaurants in the UK. You will find the Kathmandu in the shadow of the Cathedral in the heart of Truro. A cosy and relaxed establishment in Truro, the Kathmandu is hosted by charismatic and friendly hosts Raj and his family.
Fresh herbs and ingredients are used to ensure the best curry experience, so that you can enjoy eating healthier and exotic Nepalese flavours. As a result the mouthwatering dishes are a lot lighter and more subtle than traditional Indian fayre.
