I really am not picky with food, my boyfriend took me here one day after our yard sale looking to get some good lunch. The food wasn't the best, it almost had a stale taste, but still edible. We both got a small plate for starters and I was so unimpressed I couldn't get myself up to eat anything else.... More

Worst restaurant for Indian food ... I visited this place with my family and taste of food remembered my hostel mess food.. There is no combination of dishes .. They have bhature but not chole, have noodle but no manchurian.. No paneer dished in buffet..nothing for vegetarian, even for non-vegetarian. We almost retuned hungry even in buffet.

We usually eat at the buffet during the week. We met friends for a Sunday dinner and were disappointed in the food. It just wasn't as good as the buffet. The veggie samosas were dry and overcooked, the naan was really burnt. We are not exactly sure why, but the food was not as good as in the past. Maybe... More

Seriously, don't get the buffet. They are very lazy... and the vegetable coconut karma was not what it said. Since what is good is really good, I have given them 3 stars. Just avoid the buffet and you'll be fine

Hit this for lunch buffet. Found out that they will discontinue the buffet after April 1...too bad because it is delightful! The butter chicken was amazing and all of the other dishes were great...would love to keep coming for lunch...oh well! I would assume that their regular dinner fare is amazing and flavorful as well. Naan is yummy and they... More

My husband and I just had the pleasure of dining at Kathmandu. The homemade chai is perfectly balanced, and an excellent apres ski beverage. We shared the lamb korma and a spicy nepalease curry which were both the best we've had. spiced perfectly to get your blood warm after a day in the snow. Everything is served family style with...

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."
