Nepalese food may not be as celebrated as that of their nearest neighbours – though being stuck between two of the culinary powerhouses of the world in the form of India and China doesn’t help much – but down at Kathmandu Palace on Nile Street in Glenelg, there is an outpost of the cuisine in Adelaide. The joy of Nepalese cooking is in its combination of Indian-style curries and kebabs, Chinese-style stirfries and dumplings and their unique local tastes to develop something all their own. Take the Jetty Road out of Adelaide to Glenelg – seriously easier than taking a trip up to the roof of the world in Kathmandu – for a meal that offers an authentic beginners guide to the cuisine of the Himalayas. We would encourage you to book a table ahead of time though, as they can get very busy on occasion.
The restaurant is in a great location and reasonably easy to find parking. The food is outstanding and the service is great. The decorations inside are great, creating a great ambience.
A beautiful dining experience! Elegant atmosphere, charming yet discreet service, and the food was superb! The serves were generous, and even feeling full, we kept eating as we didn't want to waste a thing! If you've never tried buffalo, do yourself a favour. Then try the lamb cutlets, sensational! And make sure you book. The place was full by 7.30 and we counted 4 walk-in groups turned away before we left at 8.30.
Lovely restaurant with great charm, traditional Nepalese feel and friendly staff. The food is amazing and good value for money. Will definitely return again soon.
Great place, good food and excellent service. We were not sure what to order, so we had the banquet and were not disappointed. Waitress even asked us if we wanted seconds of some dishes! Good value. Will definitely go again!
We found the food amazing, lovely depth of flavours without being too spicey. excellent, friendly and polite service. strongly recommended. good value for money in a comfortable restaurant style. also found that although the place was busy you have a quiet conversation without having to yell over other patrons, ie like in a café! will definitely go back.
I'd been here once before and thought it was great but after this visit I'll never be returning again! Booked in advance and yet we were shoved into a corner where staff kept ignoring us the whole time and we had to flag them down numerous times to take orders, clear plates and ask for more drinks. Even had to stack the plates ourselves and that still didn't grab their attention. The main courses took well over an hour and a half to come out and were not worth the wait. Not a great night out...
Amazing authentic Nepalese food served by attentive friendly very efficient staff in a cute restaurant set in a former cottage. An excellent variety of food and wine at an affordable price.
Very tasty and interesting food. Good range of VERY reasonably priced of beers and wines. Friendly and helpful staff. Inside and outdoor dining. Perhaps it took a little to long to get our first drinks.
From the moment we arrived we felt valued. Our experience was superb, service, food, atmosphere. Couldn't have asked for better. Thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, we will certainly go back.
It was extremely busy and as a result the service was a little slow but worth the wait - the food was delicious, ambient atmosphere and staff very accommodating and friendly -
