i was there with couple of friends one night in Kathmandu, They have a great 360 view of the valley but the food they served was just way too dry and crappy and over priced.

Brian's Grill is an enigma: it purports to be an American-style restaurant, and looks a fair bit like one, has food that tastes like one, but somehow it all doesn't quite work. Like the elevator to the 9th floor that can only be when there is city power, which often is shut off all evening. Like a new year's party... More

We love Brian's. They have great food, great prices, and a great view! The staff is great. You can even order ice in your drink and not worry about getting sick.

This place used to be run by an American, not the case anymore. They also used to have NFL games, not the case anymore. Perhaps it used to be a good restaurant, but that is not true anymore. For Nepal, it is ridiculously overpriced. It is so far out of the tourist area, there is just no reason to go... More

Brian's Grill House offers good burgers and cocktails, expensive for Nepali standards, good prized for European standards. The view from the roof top terrace is really great and invites to stay for an additional cocktail. The restaurant is rather difficult to find outside of Thamel and in an area where maybe no tourist will ever pop in by accident. Most... More

I come from a foodie family. We recently moved to Kathmandu and we specifically sought this restaurant out for 2 reasons: they used to host swing dance nights and we heard about the decent food. Before arrival, it was a little difficult to find because there are absolutely no signs, not even inside the building. That was fine but it... More

We visited Brian's to watch the Superbowl live. It was a super fun experience but definitely not cheap. We ordered beers and later water which would be the most expensive waters we drank in 2 months of traveling. The burgers were ok. They had wifi which was nice. It was super fun to watch the game live but there are... More

Brian's Grillhouse attempts to replicate an American saloon in the centre of Kathmandu. It is located on the 9th floor of an office building and give a spectacular view of the northern part of the city. When I went the balcony was full of local businessmen partying. I chose to eat the Oregon burger. It was one of the best... More

My husband is Puerto Rican and looks stunningly like the people of Nepal. Everywhere we went, people thought he was Nepali. We sat and ordered average-tasting food (highly priced) and before we could eat, the waiter approached us and said that we needed to pay first. He promised us that this happened to every table and because it was 4th... More

There are lots of places that are happy to imitate the real thing, but we aren’t one of them. Brian’s Grill house serves only authentic well prepared food. When possible we source our ingredients from local organic suppliers, but when certain items or seasonings are not available here in Nepal we import the real thing to make sure that the flavors and textures of our food meet with or surpass your expectation.
