Went there twice, each time the waiters seemed bored to have to serve me, not even bringing me the menu when I sat there. I had chicken curry and garlic Nan which were ok even tho the Nan where quite greasy...

Food is the best I've tasted and the staff is very friendly. When it is sunny this place is very nice to sit at the terrace!

they have outdoor seats, but these are near the road noise and pollution. They have indoor seats and cloth (rather than paper) napkins/serviettes, which my father says is one of the signs of civilization. The minestrone, goulash and chocolate pudding cake I've had at various times, and enjoyed.

Becareful what you order and make sure it entails no changes as a half plate of spinich was given a price tag of 350 rupees more than a meal. The manger totally ignored our challenge of the bill and luaghed.

Namaste, My husband and I stumbled across this restaurant purely by chance and had one veg omelette, two toast, one cheese/tomato croissant and two glasses of freshly squeezed orange juice all for 500 nps (£3.50). The food here is delicious, in fact we go every morning for breakfast. We have two large banana pancakes at 200 nps (£1.40) for both!... More

Stumbled upon this restaurant and we were pleasantly surprised. They have a lovely terrace that provides some serenity from the busy streets of Thamel. We ordered from the Tandoori/Indian menu and was so impressed we returned a week later after our travels around Nepal. The service can be a little slow, but it is worth it. The price is very...

Visited this restaurant with friends. We didn't have much expectations, but were most pleasantly suprised to get the best malai kofta ever (indian vegetarian food). Highly recommended!
