Really enjoyed our visit here. Found the staff to very friendly and attentive. Very good value for money for food and drinks. Really nice buzz in the restaurant which was packed on a Saturday night. Lots of takeaways going out with the delivery services which can only be a good sign.

I send all of my tourists to Kathmandu and love it myself. I was there on Monday 18th. I love the decor, lighting, cosy feel. The staff are so lovely and the food is excellent. Rizem looked after us mostly this time. My only suggestion is that the music is awful. It is disco style and gets too loud over your head. We kept asking the staff to turn it down. It takes away from the lovely atmosphere. American tourists in particular note the volume of music in restaurants in Dublin makes them leave early. I think you could lower yours and change the style to make people linger for longer and spend more. I will continue to use Kathmandu as my Asian-Indian option on my tour recommendation sheet this season. Well done to the staff and chefs. Cathy Whelan - Independent Tours
