An intriguing blend of both Indian and Chinese cuisine, Nepalese food is often overshadowed by its bigger neighbours, but at this traditional restaurant on the High Street in the Derbyshire town of Clay Cross the aim is to introduce the people of the Chesterfield region to the exciting flavours of Nepal. At Kathmandu Gurkha Restaurant and Bar, you will find a mixture of traditional and new Nepalese dishes alongside all of the old Indian favorites, cooked up by the Nepalese chef for an authentic experience.
Tucked away in the town of Clay Cross, Kathmandu Gurkha Restaurant and Bar is one of the Chesterfield area’s hidden gems and, decorated in a traditional Nepalese style, this charming restaurant on the High Street could easily be mistaken for a curry house in Kathmandu. From momos – a Nepalese dumpling stuffed with meat or vegetables and served with chutney – to an array of curries, on the menu at Kathmandu Gurkha Restaurant you will find a range of exciting options, allowing you to explore the best of Nepalese cuisine in Chesterfield.
Try some achari shangrili – a tangy dish consisting of chicken or lamb flavoured with homemade pickle, or Kathmandu kadai new – a contemporary take on a classic Nepalese dish with barbecued chicken, lamb, prawns, or king prawns cooked with tomatoes, capsicum and coriander leaves with lashings of spice and red wine tossed in an iron wok. For those feeling slightly less adventurous, you will also find the much-loved Indian classics on the menu at Kathmandu Gurkha Restaurant and Bar – curries, briyani and sizzling tandoori dishes. Drawing in a crowd from Chesterfield and the surrounding areas, we recommend making a reservation at this Clay Cross restaurant in advance!
Food and service were both excellent. Everything was hot and tasty, service was very friendly and efficient. Try the Gurka beer - it's a lovely lager!

Nicest food we've had in a long time. Friendly staff and an extensive menu made for easy choice of dishes which I had never had any previous experience of. Brilliant service and reasonably priced. Will be back soon.
