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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Excellent food, efficient and friendly service. Worked hard to meet our requirements despite busy Saturday night. A fussy friend was delighted with his tandoori fish.

Once again we were very well looked after and the food and customer service was superb. One of the best Nepalese restaurants in Manchester in my opinion

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.

The mackerel starter was a little burnt and dry and not as well marinated as usual and the lamb in one of the dishes was a little tough but otherwise usual good standard

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
