While this is the 3rd restaurant we've seen in this space (Left Bank & then Sugo and now Kathmandu) Kathmandu may end up being the most successful.
I have mixed feelings about this place. I think the food was good but not terrific...some was just too highly seasoned , but when I commented on this the server immediately took it away and they returned with another plate that was better. The portions were ok, neither too big or too small but some seemed a tad expensive for the size. A lamb chop plate featured 4 lollipop cut lamb chops with not a whole lot of meat but a huge mound of vegetables for $24. Most other entrees were in the $13-16 range and seemed small as well. Flavors were generally good and everything was quite fresh.
Service was stellar and very attentive. The room is very, very noisy - at least if you are sitting in the middle as we were. Maybe request a table towards the front or back if you want a more quiet, intimate dinner.
I'd like to try their lunch buffet and see how that is. The dinner menu was quite large - almost too big. I'm not a fan of too many options, that always seems to spell disaster for a restaurant.
We went on a Saturday nite and the place was almost completely full. For 3 with a mix of entrees and some wine about $70(not including tip)
