This is one of the best and most authentic Indian restaurants I have eaten in anywhere. The lamb is flavorful without being overpowered by curries. In fact, the spices are subtle without being tasteless. We were here for dinner at my friend's special request; and he was right about waiting and coming here. Every course was better than the one before, and we ended the meal with their mango ice cream that is made onsite. It was hard to tell where the cream ended and the mango began. It was simply superb. This is an Asheville restaurant not to be missed.

It was my fist time at Kathmandu, went there for lunch buffet and it was just amazing. I liked all the dishes they had and my favorite was the dessert "Gulab Jamun". Going back for more for sure if I am in town again

This restaurant is actually getting better & better since it opened. Asheville has several good to excellent Indian restaurants so we were very happy to discover that this one was so good. We have been to India & Nepal many times over the years so I'd say our standards are on the picky side. We can definitely recommend this place and the decor is lovely in it's simplicity. A warm, inviting restaurant.

I drove 20 miles from Hendersonville because I was in the mood for Indian and I was not disappointed!

Plenty of choices of quality dishes and a delectable mango lassi to boot.

Decor is a bit blasé, but as soon as the food arrives you could care less.

Definitely stop by if you're in the mood for Indian and within 20 minutes!

Four friends went on a Sunday night after touring Biltmore House for the day. It was not crowded and the service was excellent. I tried 4 different dishes and and vegeterian appetizer sampler. All were excellent. My favorite was a vegeterian dish with potatoes and cauliflower. It was spicy with just the right amount of heat. Other itmes we tried included lamb, chicken and shrimp entrees, tandori bread and chi tea. Dishes can be made hot or mild, depending on your taste. The smell of spices is appetizing when you walk in the door. Himalayan seems the same as good Indian food that is prepared to order, so if you like that, then you should enjoy this place.
