Spice Garden Restaurant in Kathmandu

During our stay in Kathmandu, someone recommended us to dine at Spice Garden. 

It turned out that the food was so good I told myself that the establishment deserves a good blog post.

Spice Garden is located on the first floor of Trekkers Home in Thamel. Both establishments are independently operated of each other.

My apologies for the poor picture. Maybe its time to get a new camera.

Entrance to the restaurant.

The interior is clean and comfortable. 

Now comes the food :-)

After dining the first time in Spice Garden, we returned twice :-) 

This is what we had the first time we dined there:

Chicken Curry (Boneless chicken cooked in onion, tomato gravy and a touch of cashewnut paste).

 Chicken Butter Masala (Boneless chicken fillet simmered in a fresh creamy mild sauce and a touch of cashewnut paste).

We had rice with those two curries and finished the whole helping.

During our second time dining at Spice Garden, we wanted to try their naan which was highly recommended by Raj, our Nepali friend.

Here is what we ordered:

 Chicken Momo.

Paneer-Pakora (Cottage cheese marinated with besan cooked in oil and served with mint sauce).

Since the naan was highly recommended we ordered Garlic Naan and Butter Naan.

The naan portion was huge! We couldn't finish both the naan. So in typical Malaysian style, we asked to 'tapau' it The server went the extra mile to heat up the naan and wrapped it in aluminium foil for us to 'tapau'. 

What is a naan without dipping it in gravy. So we odered this spicy dish to go with our naan:

Chicken tikka masala (Tandoori chicken fillet with tomatoes, capsicum, onion, fresh coriander and a touch of cashewnut paste).

On our last day in Kathmandu, we decided to have brunch in Spice Garden before catching our flight back to Kuala Lumpur.

This time Spice Garden really lived up to its name as the best place to dine in Thamel (in my humble opinion).

We ordered the Teen Parkarki set which was really value for money since there're 3 curries in the set.

Teen Parkarki Non-Vegetarian Set: Chicken curry, mutton curry, fish curry, rice, salad, papad, naan/roti, tandoori leg and dessert. All this for only Rs 355. My mouth and wallet was smiling :-)

I would definitely return to Spice Garden the next time I'm back in Kathmandu.
