“Good food, but plz. make place nicer!”
Reviewed 27 February 2012

when you enter you think it is a little bit feeling cold and uncosy but food is excellent and cheap. An a lot of Nepali people come ther for dinner or takeaway! That is always a good sign!

“Better food then Tibet!!”
Reviewed 26 February 2012

The restaurant serves great Tibetan and other food in tourist hub of Thamel, Kathmandu ... It is difficult to find such good quality restaurant even in Tibet.... I recommend all the meal they serve there like Tibetan (buck wheat) bread, special momos, thukpa, thenthuk, chicken chilly, vegetable pakoda etc ... The restaurant is very close to the shopping area of Thamel.

“"Simple but you can get the best food in cheap price"”
Reviewed 28 January 2012

I went to Gilingche Tibetan Restaurant about 10 or 12 times during my time stay in Kathmandu as I stayed in the tourist area Thamel. Location is the best just around in the shopping area. However, I truly appreciated the fast service and the attentive staff. The Tibetan Breakfast (buck wheat bread) is the best for breakfast. It is different and delicious taste and very good for stomach.

If you are in Thamel, please visit this place for real food in very very cheap price and feel the difference they care you....

““Best food and good value for money in Thamel"”
Reviewed 24 January 2012

This place has very lovely atmosphere, warm welcomed and very friendly and taking care staff. It is best for family, friends and other occasion and individually. It has a wide space and open space and very comfortable feelings. Besides this the food served is excellent and very nice even if it is more locally. The Momos, Thenthuk, Chowmein, Masala tea and the Potato sticks are the best and delicious. Winter drink Tomba (millet-based alcoholic beverage) is the fantastic drink also. This is very natural and something different you want to try……..

Situated in Thamel, just a view seconds outside the business of the shopping streets it is a place of peace because it is just inside the road in the inner part of the house. It is the place of rest and finding friends from other countries, Delicious and good food in very cheap price and always felt like coming at home due to the warm welcomed atmosphere every time.
