This is one of the only other places outside of shops in Thamel and a couple of restaurants that are an absolute must for me when in Kathmandu. The bar is awesome; the food solid, and the book a must read... A marvellous place, indeed!!

Last night a group enjoyed a light dinner and drinks at this casual restaurant. Service was very good as was the margarita pizza and soup. Single malts were fairly priced. Environment is very relaxed. All the footprints were fun to look at.

We went looking for this place for 2 days. But after some time we realised that it has move away from the Thamel area. So don't use your time looking for it by the address they have on the trip advisor page.
