Kathmandu Highland Drive – buffet plate


Open virtually every single day of the year (seriously, stop by on Christmas or Thanksgiving) including Sunday in Salt Lake City, Kathmandu is our favorite Indian and Nepalese restaurant in town.

Spice up your Sunday with their first rate tandoori selections or maybe choose one of their Nepalese house specials such as Chicken Chilli ($14.95, deep fried boneless chicken breast, marinated with yogurt, corn flour, chickpeas flour, eggs and soy sauce, and spices) or Lamb Momo ($13.95, steamed lamb dumplings spiced with garlic, ginger, onion, spices).

Everything tastes even better washed down with an ice cold Taj Mahal beer ($7.50) too – or if you need an early Sunday night, Kathmandu’s creamy lassi drinks are also worthy of sampling. Pictured dish: garlic curry.
