About The Great Kathmandu Tandoori

South Manchester is about as good a place as any to eat Indian food – this is the home of the Curry Mile after all – but hidden in the depths of Didsbury is a restaurant that is a little more hill station than Rusholme rush hour. The Great Kathmandu Tandoori is a Nepalese joint serving up specialities from the mountainous Himalayan nation, right on Burton Road where it meets Cavendish Road. Book a table now and head on up for a culinary expedition.

Further Information

We often speak of dining at the top table, of high quality eating and of steepling standards...well, Nepal is the topmost table, the highest of the high, the roof of the world, and their cuisine is certainly up there with the best around. A fusion of North Indian delicacies, Chinese favourites, Pakistani influences and their own inimitable flavours, their food is quite like any other – set a course for Burton Road in Manchester’s Didsbury, home of The Great Kathmandu Tandoori, and try some for yourself: we’re sherpa you’ll love it.

The Great Kathmandu Tandoori offers the best that man can do with the iconic clay oven: shashlik and seekh kebabs, full chickens, paneer and more come steaming out of the tandoor at a rate of knots. Their Manchester location is great too – on Burton Road in Didsbury, close to Burton Road met stop – certainly more approachable than the slopes of Everest for starters. Or mains.

Always enjoy the Great Kathmandu. Great food and reliable service! You are made to feel welcome from the moment you enter the restaurant and it is in a very accessible location.

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!

Great service, very fast and efficient. Beautiful tasty food. A very lively, busy place. If you don't mind a lot of noise while you're eating this is a good restaurant.

Three of us enjoyed lunch at the Katmandoo Tandoori Restaurant today. The food and the service were excellent and it was great value for money.

Food was great as always. Service was a little slow at times as there were lots of Xmas parties in-to be expected this time of yr I guess. Staff were attentive when they were available.

Good food, a pleasant atmosphere, friendly and attentive staff - a place to return to over and over again, to work all the way through the menu!

Food was as good as usual but the service wasn't as good tonight-we told the manager who we know from regular visits and he promised to speak to the staff so everyone happy.

Very good food but they are not prepared to deviate from the menu at all. Service very efficient but waiters quite grumpy! Lighten up a bit!!

Restaurant was nice, food was good and staff were friendly. Definitely would go there again some time in the future. The cutlery might need updating though.

Very attentive and good humoured staff. Food was very good. Only downside was the noise from the full restaurant. Would certainly go back again in 2017.

Had heard a lot about this place and was looking forward to some really good food. The poppadoms were excellent but it went down hill from there. We had the lamb chops for starters which were overcooked and tough and the chicken starter was also dry and over cooked. The mains came and the Lamb bhoona was tough as old boots. Overall very disappointed

My first visit to Kathmandu on a very busy Saturday night. Very rushed and mains delivered to the table whilst eating starters. Food tasty though.

We waited almost 2 hours to get seated. Service appalling. A group of seven people who hadn't booked got seated before us and served before us. Two of our party had to leave to catch their tram home without eating the main course as it was so slow to come out. The food was good but service was atrocious.

Probably the best Indian restraint in Manchester. Nepalese food, spicy and different, good service by largely Nepalese staff. Try the Katmandu chicken and the Bhutan ghost. Nan bread is superb. Only nitpick are the popadoms which are spicy and small compared to the usual Manchester doorstops. It is the business and rightly popular

Terrible service,waited 45 mins for a drink ? Then over an hour before our orders were taken by a very arrogant waiter? Food was OK,when it arrived after being in there 2 hrs . My honest opinion is KATMAN-DONT! Really sorry but it's the truth.

No idea what the hype is all about, terrible service throughout. The food was mediocre like the staff and I will certainly not be returning.
