Wow, we were treated so poorly. I ordered a chicken burger and chips and received 4 chips. On enquiry about this, I was told that the owner only let's the cook serve 4 chips with the burger, so I asked to speak with the manager,...he said it was above his role to give chips, so I asked to speak with the owners, and they refused to speak with me. It wasn't so much about the chips, but the rudeness we were met with. Fair to say, we will never return.More

I did hear about this incident. You are free to explore other avenues than SAMAY. First, Burgers with Fries will come with the chips that we have portioned for and insisting on speaking to the owner will not change it. There were five chips and...More

I was with my friend to pokhara. We hired a bicycle and started towards happy village! Yes, that's the name of the village where this cafe is located. The cafe is on the lakeside with an amazing view of lake Phewa. Fortunately the weather was...amazing that day with intermittent showers and clouds hovering over us, you see that elevates your mood already. I ordered chilly pork and watermelon juice. One must have it if going to this cafe. Staff was really nice though little laid back but we didn't mind as we were enjoying the weather and the views that kept on changing. Must visit if you are in Pokhara i would say in the end.More

Heard a lot about this place so went there and yes the place was fabulous. We took a table by the lake-the view,the breeze ,the tranquility everything was perfect. We ordered bhitte tareko(fried local fish with some fried soybean and beaten rice) and a chicken...burger. The food was excellent and had a very pleasing flavours going on. The service was quick as well. The only thing bothering was flies hovering around our food. But i could see that they were trying their best to get rid of them .Other than the flies , the experience was amazing and i would love to be here again.More
