I absolute love a Saturday night curry on the sofa and both Solti and its sister restaurant, Gautam’s, always deliver on intensively rich and flavoursome dishes.

“I absolute love a Saturday night curry on the sofa and both Solti and its sister restaurant, Gautam’s, always deliver on intensively rich and flavoursome dishes. Solti is home to hearty Nepalese fare with a modern twist and at its helm is father Chef Shovakhar Gautam who started his career in Kathmanu some 30 years ago. Meanwhile, son Khima is front of house, chatting to customers as if they went back years – ‘Solti’ is after all a phrase of affection to describe a close friendship and so patrons are treated as just that.

When takeaway removes that dine-in intimacy, Solti’s food continues to speak for itself. Their Chicken MoMo – steamed dumplings with chicken and spice filling – might just be the best outside of Nepal, whilst the signature Himali lamb hot pot sauce is the perfect pool in which to dunk a freshly baked naan.”
