The place is great with a wide ambience at the heart of the city, Durbar Marg. The food was decent to me. We tried haas ko choyela, chicken sizzler, and other dishes as well. What I liked about them is the diverse restaurant staff and...the clean washroom 100%.More

Visited during dashain time with a family . The service was exceptionally good the food didn't meet our expectations. Momos were really tasteless but the sizzler choupsey neawari platter and Bolognese were really good. Used to visit nanglo before so good memory was brought back....Will definitely visit again when we come to Kathmandu.More

The decor was airy and fun. The food was very good especially the thali, a selection of small Nepalese dishes. Several varieties of Momo, and skewers available. Quite an extensive and varied menu. The prices were very reasonable eg Nepali dal Bhat chicken 821r., glass...of wine 715. Servings generous. The service was attentive and pleasant. It was great to see a third of the staff with badges saying, I am deaf. So assiduous and so welcoming. Happy to chat with the manager about how the company makes all work well. We were a party of 8, and they cheerfully did individual bills!More

We used to visit Nanglo long time back and always found it to be extremely happy place. Seems the character is missing with the current setup. Too cut and dry, where upholsterd chairs are not allowed in the open even if it's not raining. We...had to ask for paper napkins (standard issue since they do not give regular napkins), water and ketchup twice over, which otherwise should have been placed by default. All this when the restaurant was not even quarter full. More so my sister from the US, visiting with us fell at the restroom entrance due to water there. We had hard time raising the manager, Mr Kumar, who struttted in like a peacock, without offering any solid solution. They encourage / employ differently abled people and have some old timers still working. Also ( we're vegetarians and are always skeptical about ) the food was good. This makes it worth average rating. Billing Napalese Rs 5.2K for three adults. Visit 26th July23.More

DONT go to SAM’s if u r vegetarian / vegan. I asked for vegetarian noodles and the manager / head waiter said that he cannot guarantee that the noodles didn’t have any egg it it. Finally I ordered a “grilled” cheese sandwich. The bread was...like cardboard and the cheese was tasteless and the cucumber that came with the sandwich was bitter !! . Come on l, when u r charging 1000 NPR for a sandwich least u can do it grill it properly! The head waiter who took our order was so obnoxious when I suggested that they should keep some egg free noodles in case some customer requests it. He said may b one customer might request it per month. So?? Should they not cater to all types the customers? Terrible!! Deeply disappointing 😡More

We've been going to Sam's (earlier Nanglo) ever since the kids were small, mainly for their sizzler... and also because it is centrally located.. very close to our place. We used to refer to sizzler as shhhhhhhhh dish! We were there again last week with...family.. now including a grandchild too... and the place is looking much better too... nice ambience.. the one tree lighlighted with fairy lights... food (sizzler again) is very good... good service, (including from waiters donning "i am deaf" badges) clean, and price also very reasonable! :)More

As the title suggested, the food and Service was excellent. The special factor was that they employ special abled individuals to serve. The ambience is fantastic. Food excellent. Sizzlers and fried tofu were just amazing

Our group sat in a private room and enjoyed a dozen app and entree items; all delicious. The service was equally good. And, the price was reasonable; especially considering the restaurant’s location on a street with expensive shops.

Good food in a good location. Nice site overlooking Durbar Marg. Employ staff with hearing impairment which is worth knowing when ordering (and is a really good thing to do).

I truly love this place. Now i was 1 week only in Kathmandu but i came here 3 times. The variety of drinks is great and the staff is very friendly. The concept, employing also people with disabilities, shows that this place is run by...people with big heart. Next time Kathmandu, i will come again and again and again!More

Food was one of the best I’ve had in Kathmandu with very generous portion size. We ordered Sadeko Bhatmas which was absolutely divine, cheese pakora which was good, Veg cutlet which was another amazing dish and the roast chicken which was a big portion. Good...was amazing. I asked the recommendation from the waitstaff Sagar who was not only great with his suggestions but gave a prompt and most efficient service. He was very courteous and gave really good recommendations of not just the food but the drinks as well. Also, very happy to know that the place gives work to the handicapped as well. Very very impressed with this place. Great job Sam’s One Tree Cafe and great job Sagar.More

Sam’s never fails to disappoint! Apart from the best sizzlers in town, everything on their menu is worth trying. Despite being on the most expensive part or the city, they maintain a very reasonably priced menu. The service is quick. They ambiance is casual yet...comfortable. Perfect for casual meals with family and friends!More

We visited this place out of curiosity as we were searching for a place to eat near our hotel. It was the end of our tour and as we had our fair share of Nepali food, we were in the mood for something more "western."...The Greek salad, spaghetti Bolognese (chicken) and grilled chicken did not disappoint. After the lunch we we shopped a bit for Himalayan coffee to bring home as gifts. We liked the place so much so the following day, when it was time for lunch, coming back to Sam's was a no brainer, this time for chicken cheeseburgers, which tasted great. We appreciated this resto even more because they employ deaf-mute servers. Again, after lunch we shopped at its ground floor for more Nepalese items: Mheecha, a local brand of backpack and bags and some little trinkets. This is a good place to visit - for the food and some souvenir shopping.More
