All reader reviews by Anna
I lived in Nepal for 1 year and a half and also have married a Nepali man who cooks a lot (he's not related to anyone at Monty's!), so hopefully I'm qualified to write a review about this great restaurant! The food is a good mixture of traditional Nepali dishes (basically daal, rice and vegetable curry) and also more Indian-inspired recipes. The staff are very attentive, and when they get to know you they remember what you usually order (my order is often on the pad before I've opened my mouth, yes, I am that predictable). There is a decent choice of wines and lager (Kingfisher, Cobra, Gurkha etc). My favourites are the chicken chilli with aloo kulchha nan, with aloo chhat to start. My husband often has the bhindi bhaji and the kathmandu daal, which can be vegetarian or with lamb or chicken, and is full of garlic and ginger and absolutely lovely. Whenever I'm eating in Montys I start feeling homesick for Nepal! Especially when I see the paintings on the wall.
