Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Excellent food, there were 14 of us and one friends birthday with Bristol Mixed Ultimate Frisbee team! We were very hungry The food was throughly delicious, phenomenal and really filled a big hole! Brilliant positive attitude was had by all the staff on our arrival...and even did our team mate a little sing song! Would highly recommend on a trip to Reading!More

Great tasty food , served piping hot and great friendly service. With such an extensive menu we were split for choice, so we ordered some items like the chilli pork as well. Prices are reasonable and the portions are a good size. There is limited...in street parking however.More

What an excellent little restaurant, nothing fancy but fantastic Nepalese food. We didn’t know what to expect but the range of flavour was amazing as were the friendly attentive staff. Thoroughly recommend for a different experience.

I've been here many times and I reckon it is probably one of the best Nepalese restaurants I have been to. The food is great, plenty of dishes to choose from and the staff is absolutely lovely. They welcome you with a smile and make...you feel home. If you're passing through Reading, this is a must-stop. It's great value for your money!More

I am from Kolkata, India, visiting U.K, and am staying at Reading with a relative. While passing Basingstoke Rd, saw this quaint joint Dhaulagiri . Well I am a foodie and having travelled in Nepal, Bhutan & Darjeeling ( in India) I fell in love...with Nepalese food, specially Thupka and Momos. Though essentially Tibetan cuisine, these two items are most popular, even to Non veg. people, who are not Nepalese.. I ordered Pork Thupka and stir fried pork momos, and pork chowmein. I was really dissapointed. The taste was far from authentic. Thupka had smell of mustard oil, which, was unthinkable, pork momos did not bind properly, and had a very bland taste. Even the pork chow mein tasted worse than a street food vendor would offer in Kolkata or Delhi. Cannot say much about than other dishes they have on their menu., but sorry, I will not recommended this restaurant to anyoneMore

The food was amazing and the staff were lovely. There was a high chair available for my little boy. One staff member even offered to push the pram to get little one to sleep whilst I ate. The staff remembered to say happy birthday to...the family member. Service was really good and the food came quickly. We even had enough food to take home with us. Really good meal yesterday thank you very much.More

We went here for my daughter in law's birthday. They couldn't have been more accommodating even offering to push my grandson's buggy while we ate. We had one family member who doesn't like spicy food so her dishes were toned down. The food was absolutely...delicious! We had a fantastic meal and were absolutely stuffed! I cannot recommend it more highly. Excellent food Fantastic friendly service Reasonably priced Really clean.More

Dhaulagiri house do delicious food, are always super welcoming and remember faces. Nepalese curry is great. They're also really good at accommodating allergies and always check they are accommodating them well.

We went at lunchtime today as we had read the reviews and it was one of the few Indian restaurants open for lunch. We were not disappointed. The menu looks amazing with many dishes we haven’t tried before. We stuck to old favourites, lamb jalfrezi...and chicken bhuna as a comparison. Both were amazing. We also really enjoyed the pickles and poppadums. No high end decor here but it didn’t matter as the food was so good. We will be backMore

What a hidden gem this place is! It doesn’t look much from the outside & it is tiny inside, but Wow! the food is outstanding! Super friendly & helpful staff- the brilliant chef even came out to speak to us (& all the other guests)...to check we were happy with how she had prepared our food. She even explained what amendments she made especially for us. This is the kind of place everyone wants to find - a little independent, family run business, by people who are fully invested in the food they serve, which is among the best in ReadingMore

Booked a last minute meal here with the family. The place wasn't massive but fitted the 6 of us in fine. Drinks where reasonably priced. Food was beautiful. I had the neapalse lamb curry which was cooked lovely. Definatly didn't hold back with the spices...in the momos and chow mein either. Bill came to £120 which was a bit of a shock but the quality of the food made up for it. Would recommendMore

We came here for the last day of our England roundtrip and were very happy we did so. We enjoyed the variety of choises - many of which we hadn't seen before. We decided on starters and Chili paneer as well as a veg thali....Everything tasted excellent. I particularly recommend the thali. I have not been to Nepal, but as I have never had such a thali somewhere else (including India) before, I can only assume that it was authentic nepalese. It's somewhat outside the City Center (ca. 25 min walk - or just a 5 min drive), but it's definitely worth venturing out.More
