Ladies and gentlemen, please put your hands together for Namaste Nepal, who’ve introduced Manchester city and West Didsbury locals to some of the finest Nepalese and Indian cuisine in the region. Thanks to the decades of experience shared by master chefs Chandra Kumar KC and Dhurba Dangol, the a la carte menu of undeniable Himalayan classics can be tailored and spiced according to taste. Special offers abound at this Burton Road restaurant, too, if you happen to need something to give you a leg up as you begin your ascent to the lofty peaks of this unique eatery’s offering.
Manchester is awash with South Asian curry houses, but it seems that the less well-known traditions of Nepalese cuisine are finally rearing their heads above the cloudline and making themselves known to the city’s adventurous foodies. Namaste Nepal’s menu is indeed a salve for tired palates, even those that have permanent nerve damage from thrill-seeking for the hottest vindaloo in town. West Didsbury locals have been coming to Namaste Nepal’s Burton Road premises for years, and it’s high time that the rest of Manchester twigged to this restaurant’s peerless offering.
Namaste Nepal does have brilliantly prepared Indian dishes on its menu for when you drag your stubborn, proud, curry-loving better half to this West Didsbury restaurant for something other than a run-of-the-mill balti. And of course there is a deep culinary dialogue going on between India and Nepal. But it’s the special regional delicacies that created at this Manchester Nepalese restaurant that really stand out. Start with momocha, a traditional Nepalese dish of steamed mincemeat pastries served with a spicy sauce (interestingly enough, a similar kind of dumpling can be found in neighbouring China), or the fiery chwela, dry-grilled lamb or chicken with Nepalese herbs and spices. The Nepalese mains follow the same pattern, with a whole lot of high-altitude spice drawing crowds to Namaste’s Burton Road premises for the chance to sample something absolutely novel.
Many thanks for another fabulous night. The service is always great, the atmosphere is relaxed! But, most importantly, the food is second to none, with a menu that is so varied there is something for everyone
Absolutley wonderful food as always. Great veggie menu and a decent drinks range too. Left feeling full & ready for a sleep! Good job team K.C!
Excellent service and lovely food. We had the sag and Korma it was lovely. Will be visiting again in the future that's for sure. Thank you
Had a smashing night. The food was amazing. The service was amazing. Can’t fault a single thing. Our first visit and will certainly be returning.
This excellent Nepalese restaurant serves my favourite curry, the vegetable makhan, which is mild, rich and absolutely delicious in a unique way. Large menu with lots of vegetarian choice and the chilli paneer is another one to try as a large side dish if you like spicy but tasty food. The restaurant itself is comfortable and you get quick and friendly service. It's also very good value. I used to live close by The Namaste and it was my local but now it is still worth the occasional visit from Sheffield!
We are a group of girls who go out every week for a meal. Whenever we want a curry we always go to Namaste Nepal. Had a vegetarian option the other night and it was gorgeous. Just like home cooked. Can strongly recommend this restaurant.
They provided a friendly service. My curry was of a good quality (Saag). The meal was reasonably priced. The music was a bit cheesy but by the end of the meal I was really enjoying it (synth piano and windpipe accompaniment).
Really good as usual. Service was very good - food gorgeous and freshly cooked. They even gave us a complimentary drink at the end of the meal. It's one of the restaurants we go to regularly so will definitely be returning.
helpful staff, pleasant atmosphere, food to a high standard, 2nd visit to two weeks this could become a regular thing ! would recommend , parking locally always an issue if a car user, but taxis are a perfect solution.
Usual really good food and excellent service. Had a vegetarian dish Mutta Paneer and it was gorgeous. Just like home made. Wish they did more vegetarian dishes like Bhel Puri or Pani Puri. Great night out!
