I liked this heritage complex. It has restaurants & boutique shops that were upscale. Nice ambiance here. Love the architecture. We ate at Chez Caroline & Mulchowk restaurants here and enjoyed them mainly because of the ambiance of Babar Mahal Revisited.

Baber Mahal Revisited is a high end mall with several excellent restaurants, clothing, paper, jewelry, antique and other shops, as well as Kathmandu's best art gallery, Siddhartha Gallery. The architectural restoration work alone is worth a visit.

Babar Mahal Revisited is a reconstructed old place converted into an up-market shopping and restaurant mall with beautiful buildings and expensive boutiques. Well worth a visit for the tastefully and well crafted architecture and ambiance and for the 'beautiful people' who shop and eat there....More
