On vacation we visited Kathmandu Bistro. We had an amazing dinner, with exceptional service. All four of us loved our choices. They allow you to choose your spice level. Will definitely come back when in Rapid City!

The kabob appetizer was delicious. We shared the naan basket of plain, garlic and cheese naan, the chickpea Chana Masala was especially delicious. The chai tea was a little disappointing. Service was very good.
