The diners of Melbourne are more than familiar with curry – in fact, you could go as far to say that it is one of their favourite dishes – but they would traditionally associate it with Indian, Pakistani and Thai cooking. Nepalese food may not be as celebrated as some of its near neighbours, but down on Waverley Road in Malvern East, they have a restaurant that is doing something to raise the profile of the Himalayan nation’s cooking, in the form of Nepal Dining Room.

I have found the food to be exceptional over many visits and the service excellent. The goat curry is always good and there is a good selection of dishes for vegetarians. I would recommend this restaurant to all.
We went here for Valentine's Day and the service was excellent. Roses on the table plus the staff were extra friendly. From the outside it looks like a walk in and sit restaurant but once inside you feel like there should be a waiting list to get a table
Service was a bit slow although it was a Saturday night. The food was OK, but just OK. The sticky date pudding the outstanding meal for a Nepalese restaurant!!
The Melbourne dining set are always on the lookout for the next big thing, and for those of them with a taste for curry, Nepalese food is an ever-growing food trend. While most will associate the humble curry with Indian or Thai food, but those that wish for something a little different, the Nepal Dining Room on Waverley Road in the suburb of Malvern East is the place to go.
Close to Caulfield train station, Caulfield Racecourse and Monash University in Malvern East, and only a short stretch off the M1, Nepal Dining Room is easier to reach than most things Nepalese – certainly easier than a trip to Kathmandu or Mount Everest – and their food will make you feel like you’re there. Steamed momo dumplings, tandoori favourites and countless curries: we recommend the pork curry with bok choy. Make sure you book a table though, as they can get busy.
