This review is taken from the current (2013) edition.
Behind big plate-glass windows on the busy Forrest Road, Namaste Kathmandu is an unassuming and clean-cut curry house. The interior wood panelling is decorated with authentic brassware and artwork which hints towards the restaurant’s Nepalese influences. Main course options (tikka masalas, kormas and other usual suspects) can be changed up with chicken, lamb, prawn or vegetable, while Indian staples such as pakora, samosas and naan breads are all well executed. The menu’s Nepalese crossover brings unique options for more adventurous diners. Lamb in particular proves a particularly well-matched partner for the rich but not overly hot Nepalese spice blends. Musical instruments from Nepal including the sarangi and madal adorn the walls. Knowledgeable staff guide diners through the good value set-price thali lunches or pre-theatre offerings, all of which give a good sample of dishes from the a la carte menu.
