Up to the usual great standards. The Great Kathmandu has been a favourite for over 2 decades and still remains the first choice restaurant in West Didsbury.

As always, great food and service. Three quarters of the party we vegetarian and had plenty of choice. Many thanks for a great night and great food.

Arrived for 18:00 and although the restaurant had just opened it was already starting to get busy, which is always a good sign! Very cosy and family oriented restaurant that manages to keep a high standard of services with great food and a lovely Nepalese atmosphere!

A warm welcome from the staff; the meal was efficiently and effectively served. The quality of the food is outstanding with rich, varied flavours with a wonderful variety of herbs, spices ,ginger and garlic. All at avery reasonable price.

We used to eat here many years ago not long after it first opened. It was only a small restaurant then and the food was second to none - the freshness, the flavours and the tandoori cooking absolutely sublime with naan and pilau rice to die for. The restaurant has since expanded considerably in line with its reputation and to meet the ever-increasing demand for food in West Didbsury. We thought the curries were as good as ever but the tandoori mixed starter was disappointing - whilst the flavours were good, we were pretty sure it had been re-heated in a microwave and not cooked fresh in the tandoor, especially as it arrived very quickly after we'd ordered and the seek kebab was on the soggy side. However overall this did not detract from what was a very reasonably-priced meal served by friendly, efficient staff - and the curries, rice and naan are still THE best, though the Rajdoot runs it close (but is a lot dearer).

The food was absolutely amazing.... as always! They really are a cut above. Fine ingredients, perfectly cooked, wonderful flavour balances. Good sized portions as well. We went for a prawn and fish special, lamb handi and tandoori chicken shak-shu-na, as well as various sides. This is my third visit and there are very few restaurants that deliver such consistent high standards. Shame the service was a little bit slow, clumsy and disjointed. It was 8pm on the Saturday of Valentine's Day week, so understandably they were mega-busy. Staff were clearly working hard and I'm not sure an additional member of staff would have helped (quite tightly packed in the dining area). Just one if those things... small blot, but definitely a positive experience all things considered.

A group of 5 of us do a fairly regular Thursday night at the Kathmandu and we always get great food and service and the fact the place is always busy on a weeknight tells you its a great place to eat and drink. We have tried elsewhere but have given up and only come here now!

It was a very nice experience, the staff were lovely , very friendly. The only problem we had was that we felt the food was a bit rushed. No sooner had we finished our starters and they brought the main courses. It would of been nice to have a bit of time in between

Very Friendly welcome and service from the owners daughter and great food. what started out as a great evening was marred slighted by the hostile attitude of the owner whilst clearing the table and delivering the bill which we had not asked for.....just as well we didn't​ want coffee !

We had a very enjoyable evening on our sons Birthday. The food was excellent, the staff were very friendly and even produced a cake with candles when they realised it was a Birthday celebration. We will certainly be visiting again.

We visited on a Sunday evening just after opening. The restuarant began to fill up pretty quickly with both families and couples. The food was excellent with good service throughout. We will definitely be visiting again.

We go here on a regular basis and never had to complain about the food service or anything else-it is excellent and if it wasn't we wouldn't keep coming back! Better than going into Rusholme

A lot of the older male staff appear a bit grumpy and just look bored. I wish that all Indian restaurants would attempt to be a bit healthier and include more vegetables in their dishes as they all tend to be just chunks of meat in lots of tastey sauce.

This is obviously a busy and popular restaurant. On the night we went they had a chef missing and the service was very slow. The manager came over to apologise and handled the situation very well. The food was good rather than outstanding and the portions were rather over facing.

Food was average, but the service was friendly and helpful. My lamb dish was clearly just a sauce poured over pieces of lamb that weren't even hot. The aloo dum wasn't very flavourful, although my friends' dishes seemed to be better. The peshwari naan was excellent, though!

Good service, excellent food (as always), good value for money. Only criticism is the floor had cutlery and food left lying on the carpet; none of which was removed during or 1.5 hour stay.

Previously We have been out as a big group to Kathmandu and the whole thing was great - slick - good food and great service led by a fantastic hostess but this time it was completely different. The service was really poor and the food quality poor also. Three different people brought us menus despite being told we were having a set menu and we continually had to repeat requests. The organisation was shocking and it seemed short staffed. I wouldn't rush back.

Pleasant restaurant, laid back and relaxing - service was attentive, but low key, and the food was beautiful. This restaurant compares favourably with its sister restaurant The Third Eye in Didsbury.

It was very busy so we had to have a table upstairs in the private room area which wasn't as nice as the main restaurant. Service was a little slow but staff were great. We will go again!
