We have not been to a Nepalese restaurant for a long time and when we read about this small restaurant located at Crown Street in Surry HIlls near our holiday apartment, we decided to drop in for dinner. There were only two other tables occupied when we walked in but the staff were welcoming. As this is a BYO restaurant... More

Not worth the bother. Go over to the many Indian/Pakistani/Nepalese places along Crown St where you can get the same thing, more quickly for about $10. When I was there, there was a customer/staff member who refused to stop smoking right outside the front door. When I told him that it was not allowed, he told me to f":" off!... More

The food on offer here is unbelievable and it's a great location on Crown Street. To start we had the Alu Chop which was really tasty and the Haku Chowela. The meat was fantastic and the crispy rice was strange but delicious! For mains we had the goat curry and fish curry.....Wow. The goat had a good amount of kick... More

The service at The Nepalese Kitchen is always friendly and efficient. The food is absolutely delicious and at about $30 a head it is great value. It can get quite crowded some nights so it is best to book just to be sure of a table.

A casual environment to enjoy catching up with friends over exceptional food. It’s noisy and chaotic, but it adds to the fun atmosphere. The food is amazing, at incredible value for money, and bring your own wine to accompany the meal. A regular recommendation for casual dinners.

The food in this restaurant is really delicious and very reasonably priced. We arrived at 7:30pm but it never really got busy until close to 9pm then everyone came in. It... More

This was our second visit to this restaurant. We had enjoyed the food the first time and wanted to return. We booked a table for 7.00 pm. The entrees came quite quickly and then our mains came out together which was disappointing as they were cold by the time we tried them all. The waitress then cleared the table and... More
