San Francisco: Metro Kathmandu (CLOSED); restaurant review

San Francisco

Metro Kathmandu  CLOSED  311 Divisadero St./Page St., Haight-Ashbury, (415) 552-0903. D Tu-Sun, Sat-SunBr; $$. Reservations taken.

This engaging venue is just one room, colored red and featuring a decorative mirrored chair rail and black wood tables. The specialty is exotic Nepalese cuisine, which is influenced by Indian and Chinese cuisines. Appetizer choices include momo (like steamed Chinese dumplings) and deep-fried samosas stuffed with potatoes and peas. Main courses are kebabs and some curries (don’t miss the very tasty, and spicy, lamb vindaloo), and side dishes include flavorsome sautéed spinach with garlic and several breads—a buttery paratha and the always popular roti. Soju (rice wine) cocktails and a mango lassi are available along with beer and wine. The restaurant is open until 1 a.m. A backyard patio is opened for brunch in good weather.
