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

Very happy to stumble upon this restaurant. I went to the Skechers outlet next door and the name catches my attention. One Tree Cafe? Entrance is unassuming, through a sort of store showcasing local products. Then comes the coffee bar with big the tree. A...menu stand makes my decision to try this restaurant. Somebody told me to go "upstairs". Wow.... just wow! Open air terrace with twinkling lights. Beautiful murals. Perfect setting for a night alone, romantic rendezvous with your partner or friends/family get together. Wait staff almost all hearing impaired so just point to the menu items of your choice. Good taste, right portion, reasonable price. Really a gem in overwhelming Kathmandu. A must whenever you are in the city.More

A rooftop restaurant that serves excellent local and western food. Good prices and delightful service by the mostly deaf waitstaff. We recommend this for good value and good food.

We visited here as part of a tour group after visiting downtown Kathmandu. This is a large airy cafe/restaurant with, as it says in the title, one large tree growing through the middle of the cafe. The upper deck has a welcome gentle breeze being...an open terrace overlooking a busy intersection of Kathmandu. The service was very good and able to cope with large numbers descending at once. Staff members were cheerful and welcoming and this establishment appears to employ a number of staff with disabilities such as hearing impairment which is good to see and the service was top notch.More
