When Capital Public Radio reporter Elaine Corn visited Kathmandu Kitchen in 2009, she spoke to two servers—Paritosh and Rosy—who explained the nuances of their native Nepalese cuisine. A small yet diverse country, Nepal draws from distinct culinary influences: Tibet and China to the north and India along the south. As such, diners viewing Kathmandu Kitchen’s menu for the first time are greeted with a cross section of its varied cuisine, which includes Tibetan-style pan-fried noodles, tandoor-cooked chicken tikka masala, and fiery curries seasoned with cumin and garlic. The uninitiated are the lucky ones; Rosy explains that having first-time visitors to the restaurant is one of her favorite things. “If I find a person coming for the first time in this restaurant, I’ll be the happiest person at that moment. Because we feel it’s really important that people from America are valuing us, too, through our food.” Tables clad in white linens and a mural of the Himalayas surround Nepal’s beloved regional dishes, which coalesce perfectly in the form of thali, a tray filled with a harmonious blend of dumplings, flatbread, and lentils crowned with a main course.

Kathmandu Kitchen’s wide spectrum of aromatic and authentic vegetarian, chicken, lamb, and seafood entrees pleases just about every palate. The eatery has earned recognition from a host of local sources, including spots on the Top Five Best Indian restaurants list by CityVoter and the Top 100 list by Local Eats.

Bombay Bar & Grill lures diners with an approachable menu of mildly spiced Indian cuisine that Zagat scored as "very good to excellent." To enhance the flavors of free-range lamb and chicken as well as the housemade cheese, the chefs track down seasonal herbs and vegetables and incorporate them into their ever-changing menu. Skewers of meats and vegetables marinate in yogurt and mustard sauce before being roasted over the tandoor oven's bed of smoldering charcoal, and orders of chicken or lentils simmer in creamy curries.

Colorful, mismatched pendant lights hang from the dining room's ceiling and illuminate the area's bright-red and deep-purple walls. A turquoise-hued bar dominates one side of the restaurant, tempting guests with its selection of Indian beers and its bartenders who look like they need to hear a good joke. Belly dancers occasionally stop by and amp up the cultural atmosphere.

Curry Club Indian Bistro serves up a spice-laden spread of curries, vindaloos, and tandoori dishes made from traditional North Indian recipes, spanning locales including Punjab and Kashmir. Whipping up lunch buffets and dinners once enjoyed by Mughal noblefolk and emperors, the chefs pride themselves on their authentic biryani, fluffy naan, and korma. Each tender morsel of chicken tikka and tandoori-cooked meat bakes to perfection in a traditional clay oven, which is made from Punjabi clay, rather than cutting corners with the more accessible Play-Doh.

Namaste Nepal takes its name and warm ambiance from the reverent Indian greeting, "Namaste," but the piping-hot helpings on each plate transcend cultural and geographic labels. Chinese, Indian, Tibetan, and Nepalese recipes contribute to the menu, filling a flavor spectrum that runs from pleasantly tangy to sizzling hot. Each dish is prepped to order using natural ingredients and often prompts speculation as to the size of the kitchen's spice cabinet. Notes of cardamom, cinnamon, nutmeg, and saffron tantalize the nose, underlined with the scent of charcoal-roasted meat—chicken, lamb, fish, and shrimp—cooked in the tandoor and marinated in creamy yogurt sauce.

Careful combinations of these herbs and entrees lead to staples such as chicken tikka masala, as well as specialties such as boneless lamb with red chili sauce and tamarind. One of several vegetarian offerings, muttar paneer pairs housemade cheese with green peas, and four types of samosas entice diners to start meals by biting into crispy shells instead of by inconspicuously gnawing the tablecloth. Guests also can peruse well-stocked buffets at lunchtime and order group platters for catered events.

At Bombay Bistro, each bite of curry-doused chicken, fish, and lamb evokes the rich culture of India. The menu showcases a diversity of traditional entrees, including four biryani plates, five vindaloo dishes, and 16 vegetable-curry varieties. A clay oven adds a golden finish to fresh-baked naan, which is perfect for scooping up savory yellow lentils after they’re poured over a baseball coach’s head.

India House owner Daljit Sandhu, his wife, and their two sons help guests to pick new favorite entrees, and are as likely to bring plates of tandoori chicken and fried cubes of house-made cheese to tables as they are to prepare the meals themselves, a hands-on, customer-focused approach noted in a Folsom Telegraph write-up. The menu's pages help to explain how the family restaurant nabbed the KCRA3 A-List award for Best Indian from 2011-2013: South Indian dosas envelop vegetables in savory crepes, and 10 breads topped with garlic or stuffed with potatoes scoop up mouthfuls of curries, whose heat is extinguished by wines and beers imported from the subcontinent. India House also caters special occasions such as weddings and sendoffs for explorers who still believe the Far East exists, and belly dancers shimmy throughout the dining room on weekend evenings.
