Nestled between the Nordic houses of the Finnish city of Espoo is an exotic palace that takes its name from an equally beloved Nepalese city. Kathmandu Palace stands out as one of the few authentic Nepalese restaurants where Finns can enjoy their own little piece of Nepal. Despite having been around for just six months, the seats are always taken when the restaurant opens its doors – and so they should. Owner Nabin Bhattarai aims to spice up even the chilliest Finnish spring times by offering Nepalese delights in warm, joyous surroundings.
