may not necessarily be a place that springs to mind when
one thinks of a country with a diverse and exciting cuisine.
Yet this is exactly what The Nepal Restaurant in trendy
SoHo district has been offering to its customer since
1995. This small but inviting restaurant gives diners
a chance to experience dishes that have been inspired
by those served at the Royal Palace of Kathmandu. The
Bhojan, or menu on offer, is based on dishes which originate
from every corner of Nepal. And at The Nepal, the added
charm of the dishes is the copious amount of fresh herbs
and spices used to give the dishes a certain exotic taste."

scares the culinary heights...Yet another restaurant
has opened on Staunton Street, which is rapidly becoming
transformed from quiet nondescript back street into
Hong Kong's latest culinary hot spot."

cuisine produced by a people inhabiting the sides of

And the contents of the menu reward this expectation."

The delicious curries, kebabs and intriguing local specialties
bring an authentic taste of the mountain court to armchair
Hong Kong Tatler (Hong Kong's Best Restaurants, 1999)"This
little gem of restaurant is about as authentic as they
come, right down to the Himalayan yak's cheese and the
tender mutton dishes which are popular back in Nepal...The
attention to detail shows in while the dim sum-style
melt-in-the mouth momocha starter is heaven."
bc magazine The Guide 2000"It's
a popular spit, as the cuisine is quite different from
that of the other eateries in the SoHo area. It is Royal
Nepalese, a diverse and fully-flavoured style of cooking,
once served only to the royals and their guests in the
mountain high state...Nepal is one of few restaurant
to cater to weight-watching clients as well as vegetarians.
With a little advance notice, they can create a menu
to suit your requirements."

food this is not, and shame on you for confusing the
two. Nepalese food has unique flavours all its own:
Have the momocha - fabulous steamed
vegetable dumpling-and see for yourself".
HK magazine 2000 Restaurant Guide"The
myth and magic of Nepal coupled with a trendy location
gives the restaurant a novelty value that masks for
the moment a success based on more solid ground - an
authentic and growing interest in the offerings of the
