An intriguing blend of both Indian and Chinese cuisine, Nepalese food is often overshadowed by its bigger neighbours, but at this traditional restaurant on the High Street in the Derbyshire town of Clay Cross the aim is to introduce the people of the Chesterfield region to the exciting flavours of Nepal. At Kathmandu Gurkha Restaurant and Bar, you will find a mixture of traditional and new Nepalese dishes alongside all of the old Indian favorites, cooked up by the Nepalese chef for an authentic experience.
Tucked away in the town of Clay Cross, Kathmandu Gurkha Restaurant and Bar is one of the Chesterfield area’s hidden gems and, decorated in a traditional Nepalese style, this charming restaurant on the High Street could easily be mistaken for a curry house in Kathmandu. From momos – a Nepalese dumpling stuffed with meat or vegetables and served with chutney – to an array of curries, on the menu at Kathmandu Gurkha Restaurant you will find a range of exciting options, allowing you to explore the best of Nepalese cuisine in Chesterfield.
Try some achari shangrili – a tangy dish consisting of chicken or lamb flavoured with homemade pickle, or Kathmandu kadai new – a contemporary take on a classic Nepalese dish with barbecued chicken, lamb, prawns, or king prawns cooked with tomatoes, capsicum and coriander leaves with lashings of spice and red wine tossed in an iron wok. For those feeling slightly less adventurous, you will also find the much-loved Indian classics on the menu at Kathmandu Gurkha Restaurant and Bar – curries, briyani and sizzling tandoori dishes. Drawing in a crowd from Chesterfield and the surrounding areas, we recommend making a reservation at this Clay Cross restaurant in advance!
Excellent meal as always. Coped well with a table of 14 of us despite having another large table on the other side of the restaurant
Food, service and presentation were excellent as always, I have never had a meal at this place that I haven't enjoyed the standard is always high
Excellent meal, great atmosphere, friendly staff and as always fantastic value for money. Can't wait to book and visit again. The Gurkha beer was fantastic.
We came out for my dads birthday not expecting anything . When we turned up the table was decorated and also at the end they brought out a lovely piece of cake . The food was amazing definitely the best curry I have had we will definitely be returning .
Food was absolutely lovely. Enjoyed decor as well. Staff attentive, though not necessarily welcoming; more obligatory, which was disappointing. Others who were entering/leaving and obviously repeat customers were given the kind of treatment I would be accustomed to in the culture of this establishment. Given the quality of the food though, we will go again and see if it was just an off day for welcoming new custom.
It was our first time at Kathmandu and we really enjoyed it. The Staff were helpful and friendly and efficient. The menu was extensive. We particularly enjoyed our starters. We had time between courses to enjoy our evening. We will definitely go again.
Great food and staff. Definitely going to back and would highly recommend it to anyone. A very good choice on the menu and helpful staff to help you choose if you need it.
Great food, great service, great atmosphere. We will definitely be going back again soon! The car park was a bit of a squeeze but the actual restaurant made up for it.
Fantastic meal as always. We visit regularly and have never had a bad meal. Introduced some friend who have never been before and they were not disappointed! Excellent all round.
