Had tough time finding the restaurant. Nobody could identify Spice Garden Restaurant. Finally searched for Vaishali hotel, asking locals. Vaishali seems to be well known place as almost everybody could help me locating it. After reaching Vaishali, asked local shops about Spice Garden, still no luck. Finally with the help of the photo (seemed to be taken from a roof)... More

If you want great curry this is the place to be. They had a smaller menu due to the fuel crisis but they deliver great and clean quality food from the limited selection. I ate the meat curries here during my week stay and never had any problems. Food is super tasty and clean, my favourite is their tikka masala.... More

Don't leave Thamel without tasting palak paneer with butter naan at spice garden restaurant. More so, you can try the awesome chicken soup , plain lassi, chicken curry and fried rice.There re many viariety of foods you can try, but be assured of good taste and value for money

Great tasting Indian food and really large serving sizes. Even without power the food was still amazing. Would recommend the chicken tikka masala

The food was decent. The paneer butter masala was very good but the chicken tikka masala was just ok because the meat was overcooked. The naan was good. But the real downside for us was that people were smoking inside the restaurant (not on an outside roof terrace or something). Even though we moved down the other end of the... More

The best byriani I have had in Thamel. The naans are excellent and the portions very generous. We tried a fair few of their curries during our stay in Kathmandu and never got disappointed.

Chicken Tikka Masala and Chicken Curry at least are amazing in this place. We've been here for half a dozen times and the food doesn't disappoint. The place is dark and menu limited due to fuel crisis, but the candle light dinners make up for it. This is a gem.

We visited Spice Garden on a number of occasions over three months in Nepal and were extremely satisfied, definitely the best Indian restaurant we have come across! The service is good and the food is even better. It has been consistent every time we have come and we highly recommend any of the Kadhai curries and the samosas. The food... More

The price is right and the fare is fantastic. All of this on the back of a 'limited menu' due to the current fuel situation (which otherwise was difficult to notice so don't let that stop you going to Nepal). I wanted to go back the next day, but had a flight to catch. If you like curries just go.

We had a delightful experience at Spice Garden. The naan was stellar, and the main dishes were universally well received. The dishes are small and cheap (300 rupees or so), so we all ordered two or three. We were there during the cooking fuel shortage, but they were able to serve much of the menu and executed it well.
