Nice, cosy and hip joint. Very good initiative of employing young poeple with some retardness, e.g. deaf & dumb as bartenders or delivery boys or table boys. Food is very deicious, but choice is limited.

Great food, centrally located. It takes a while to order as the waiters are mostly deaf but it is certainly very good that they are given an opportunity to work. Very good food. Prices are reflective of prices around durba marg

This place has a nice terrace in the center of town. They promote equality for people with disabilities, and the waiters have hearing and speech impairment, you can order by writing. The menu is typical of other kathmandu restaurants, nothing really new to your palate....More
