A European inspired garden amidst the busy streets of Kathmandu. This good place to spend a quiet afternoon having tea or coffee :)

It was an oasis of calm/quiet in a busy/polluted area. My issues with it are that its not actually that big - you can walk around in a few minutes and the cafe (Kaiser Cafe) was horrendously expensive by local standards, so we couldnt relax and have a drink.

Just a calm garden with a lot of sparrows in it. Not much to see for a 200Rs ticket and most importantly, DON'T waste your money on 10% service fee and 13% VAT on a really so-so quality food and drink.

It's a nice and quiet place. There is a entry ticket for it though even if u want to go to the restaurant. But the restaurant has a wonderful view of the garden. A little expensive than regular fare but a good place to have a coffee .

I was there before on 1/1/17 for the afternoon. The setting made me want to sit for a cup of fabulous Nepali Masala Tea! I sat in the tea salon part in one of the pavilions - there are 3 or 4 seating areas with different styles all serving the same menu. I also had the apple pie - delicious... More
