Tantalizing Nepalese cuisine now in 2nd Chatan location

Date Posted: 2009-04-17

Nepalese curries are now being served in Chatan Town, only a short distance from Camp Foster.

Kasthamandap made its debut only several weeks ago, less than two years after owner Narayan Prasad Joshi opened his first Nepalese restaurant in Chatan’s Araha district. The restaurant name, Kasthamandap, is also that of a very famous temple in Nepal.

Twenty different types of curry are being served at Kasthamandap, including favorites butter chicken, mutton, seafood, fish, vegetable, spinach, Keema and squid ink. Spices—more than 20 different ones in all—are the keys to Joshi’s creations, which are available ala carte or in a variety of different sets.

A Kasthamandap dining experience is steeped in Nepalese tradition, right down to the imported woods and decorations that create an ambience unlike any other restaurant on Okinawa. Joshi, who’s become almost Uchinanchu thanks to his 25 years on the island, and his family are committed to making every meal totally authentic.

Curries range from ¥880~1,080, with an additional ¥300 for salad and soft drinks. Meals are served with traditional nan, a bread, but Kasthamandap has additional special nans, including garlic and cheese, for an additional ¥100. On the ala carte side, Masala Papad, bean cracker soup, goes for ¥580, while vegetable soup is ¥380. Biryyani, Nepal fried rice featuring multitude of spices with meat including ghee, beans, cardamom, saffron and mint arranged with chicken, vegetable, mutton, pork, or seafood, are priced at ¥900 and up.

A set lunch and dinner menu has each three choices and “everyweek curry” with drinks ¥680. More expansive sets include two curry selections from Keema, lamb, Dul and Chicken, with nan and rice, spiced chicken malai, salad, soft drinks and dessert. Dinner sets—special set includes four curry selections from seafood, spinach chicken, Dal, mixed vegetables, mutton and pork, served with nan and rice, two kinds of tandoori from the list of chicken tikka, fish tikka, lamb chub, soup, salad, soft drinks, coffee and dessert ¥3,980 for two people. Nepal and Kathmandu sets are priced ¥1,780 and ¥2,280.

Beers, awamori, whiskey and cocktails are available from ¥500 up.

Kasthamandap is located in Chatan, just around the corner from Kitamae intersection across from the car shop CowCow on Route 58, only five minutes from Camp Foster. The restaurant accepts U.S. dollars, Japanese yen. Visa, MasterCard and American Express are scheduled to be accepted from May . Kasthamandap has nine parking spaces immediately in front of the restaurant.
