Monty's of Kathmandu

All the best places to eat, shop and stay in Ireland. A local guide to local places.

Can you believe that Monty’s of Kathmandu will soon be 20 years old! In September 1997, Shiva and Lina Gautham got the doors open on their premises in Temple Bar, and brought a palette of entirely new flavours and culinary ideas to the city of Dublin. What has distinguished Monty’s is the quest for authenticity and simplicity which the restaurant has pursued since day one. In a city where ethnic cooking used to be a tragic mish-mash of compromised culinary cultures, Monty’s always stood out as being pure, refined, direct and soulful, a refection of the fact that the cooking itself is a reflection of the skills and wishes of Shiva and Lina. Monty’s offers domestic Nepalese cooking, but with a professional confidence and sheen, and with masterly tandoor skills ensuring that the smoky, barbecued trueness of the flavours is always present. Don’t miss the momo dumplings, don’t miss the kachela, don’t miss Lina’s aubergine pate, don’t miss the kulcha, and don’t miss the opportunity to accept wine recommendations from Mr Gautham and, in so doing, to discover how great wines and great Nepalese flavours belong together.
