9 of us dined at Kathmandu Palace on a Saturday evening and our varying meal selections were all delicious, service was friendly although at times a tad disorganised for some of us. The menu range covers red and white meats, fish, prawns and vegetarian options. Atmosphere is laid back and décor is pleasing. We will definitely return to celebrate another... More

we went to this restaurant on the weekend for dinner. The atmosphere was relaxed, the service was excellent and the food was sensational. there was such a range of food that all tastes were catered for, the vegetarian, those wanting something not too spicy and then those who were ready for a completely different dining experience. I had chicken dumplings... More

Dinner with colleagues after work on a busy evening in Glenelg. The Kathmandu Palace menu offered a banquet that suited our tastes. They were helpful in ensuring alternatives to suit one gluten free diner. Service was very friendly but the food was very slow in coming. When it did arrive it was delicious with a wonderful mix of flavours and... More

I went here for dinner with a couple of girlfriends. Quite a lovely, small, cosy restaurant. As some people have mentioned already, entrees arrived not too long after ordering but the mains took a looong time after the entrees.... like maybe an hour or more. The flavors were delightful, however the servings are not big. there was only 4 or... More

The service and food at this restaurant are very good. The unique flavors of the Nepalese food is a welcome change. A good selection of wines, although the corkage for byo is expensive at $15 per bottle. Enjoy the great food.

5 of us visited for dinner, without a booking, on a recent busy summer evening. The restaurant was very busy but we were quickly greeted and offered the only remaining table, which was reconfigured from the four places set, to five. We were told before sitting that they were very busy and that there would be delay in the kitchen.... More

Went here with the family as part of trip to Adelaide. We arrived and our order was promptly taken. Entrees arrived shortly after but he mains arrived well over an hour after that ! Waaaaaay too long. By that time we had lost our appetite and were "over it". The place was busy (it's always busy) and whilst the staff... More

There is nothing wrong with this place. The food is not greasy, it's fresh, the produce is good. The presentation is lovely. It is a small place and fills up quickly (we were here on a Tuesday night and it was packed). The noise is about what you would expect for a full restaurant and it's not easy to move... More
