We walked by this restaurant in Thamel, heard the ethnic music, nice setting, seemed crowded so we decided to eat there. House wine was good, music was good. Service was not great, and the food was poor. I had Sizzling Chicken. It was a terrible...More

We went here on our penultimate night in Nepal and we were thoroughly disappointed. The food is bland Western food (unfortunately our guide insisted on taking us to Western places, even though we wanted authentic food). I did, however, opt for pizza as I had...More

Went to dine here with friends at 7.30. Restaurant was around a quarter full. From the start the waiter taking our order was very rude and obnoxious. He would roll his eyes and keep looking at his watch if we asked a question about the...More

With so much to choose from don't be tempted by the bright lights and nice garden setting. The food was cold and probably the worst we ate during our stay in Thamel. The waiter quickly apologised and gave us a discount, must be used to...More

Really disappointed. Worst service and meal we had in two weeks touring around Nepal. Place was almost empty when we ordered a late lunch. Really slow service, waiters didn’t seem bothered and when the pizza eventually arrived it was poor. Avoid this place. So many...More

Food took ages to come and not the best food. However, did reduce price of coffee to single cup from the refill option as an apology for the wait

The place looks good, but the service is not good. We had to wait for more than 1,5h for our food, and when we asks the waiter, he just gave us a bad reply and said we were only here for 20 minutes - he...More

Visited this one night with my friend. We were extremely hungry, so we actually ordered two meals each. This gave us quite a good sample of the food they served. The food was mediocre at best. I got a quesadilla sueza, which was very bland,...More
