After the success of our previous event, Rajiv's Kitchen is back with yet another night of cocktails and 4 course Nepalese feast: Kathmandu & Cocktails Part 2.

This time we are joining hands with the cocktail guru David Hamilton from Plate & Shaker and Organic Spirit for a night of Nepalese delights and fantastic cocktails with Opihr Gin.

Want a bit more adventure in your life? Then spice it up with our cruise along the spice route to deepest Nepal. Join the Captain of the Ship for a night of Cocktail Mixing (learn to mix your own.

Bringing Kathmandu to London

Kathmandu & Cocktails: The Saga Continues was my first ever supper club and I am glad I chose Nepalese cuisine. I went to the supper club on my own but the atmosphere itself was so friendly and because it was so comfortable, I felt right at home! We were welcomed with a complimentary drink, Opihr Gin & tonic. The supper club also came with a cocktail masterclass provided by the Captain from Opihir Gin and was the perfect ice breaker for people like me who went on their own.

We started with the famous chicken momos served with sesame and tomatoes chutney. Momos are bite size Nepalese Dumplings and it was delicious! This was just a pre-starter and it was a perfect tease for what to expect for the evening.

For the starter, we were served Bheda & Achaar. It comprised of Nepalese lamb meatballs served in a bed of spicy eggplant coated with hemp seeds chutney, accompanied by garlic yoghurt & green chutney. I am not a big fan of eggplant but this dish completely changed my view. The meatballs were juicy and tender and it worked with the eggplant. The yoghurt balanced the spice of the starter pretty well as well.

For the main course, we had seven different varieties:

Khasi ko Maasu: Nepalese goat curry, slow cooked with Nepalese herb & spices.

Paneer ko tarkaari: Paneer & capsicum chilli with garden peas.

Chukauni: Potatoes & yoghurt salad with sweet red onions, fresh green chillies & coriander, tempered with fenugreek & fenugreek flavoured oil. ( Served cold)

Kukhura ko achaar: Spicy & tangy Chicken pickle, Nepalese style. (Served at room temperature)

Ramtoriya ko tarkaari: Fried Okra & potatoes curry. (My favourite)

Hyakula: Nepalese spicy lamb ribs served with hemp seeds & tomatoes chutney.

Kaalo Daal: Black gram daal cooked with ginger & tempered with ghee & jimbu (herb found only in the mountainous regions of Nepal). Served with fresh lime.

The main course was served with fragrant rice and paratha bread.

Each table were provided with sharing platters echoing the traditional Nepalese culture of sitting together and enjoying a meal. When I had portions of different dishes on my plate, the bright colors of the ingredients made it a feast for the eyes as well as the stomach. We had to wait a bit for the daal but the varieties were so fulfilling that we didn't mind the delay much.

Unfortunately, I had to leave early to catch the train back home so I missed the dessert. However, it was a lovely and a fun evening making cocktails and meeting different individuals.

Booking a table at a London restaurant is impossible and if you are looking for food that uses fresh ingredients, then Rajiv's Kitchen is the new go-to place! There’s no doubt this supper club will quickly become the hottest reservation in town!

AMAZING supper club!

I have been to two of Rajiv's supper clubs and they have both been amazing! The food is incredible and unlike other supper clubs I have been to, there is always lots to eat. The cocktails were a really nice addition and complimented the food perfectly.
Rajiv is a wonderful host, he takes time to speak to the guests and explain what's on the menu. The variety of dishes is amazing, there are always new foods to try and everything is delicious. There isn't enough Nepalese cuisine in the UK but if you want the best, go to Rajiv's supper club! It is food you could eat again and again.
