Enjoyed a great BBQ chicken at this café as part of a group visit. Great ambience sitting out in the courtyard at night time. Huge menu selection. Service was attentive and prompt.

So good we dined 3 times of our 4 nights in Kathmandu. Fajitas are fantastic. Burgers awesome too. Only disappointment my chimichanga was a bit dry and served with fries (even though id ordered a side dish of fries as well). A bit pricier than some places, but still good value.

I recommand you of going there for breakfast : it is not very cheap but is scrumptious and decent. You should taste their cornflakes with banana and honey.

This is a relatively big "tourist" restaurant just off the main shopping street in Thamel. Personally I did not like the music as it made it more difficult to have a conversation at the table. Pizza was ok , but nothing special.

I ordered the spicy, crunchy chicken burger (regular American price), and was very disappointed. The patty tasted and looked more like tofu than chicken. The buns were spongy and a little hard to chew. The burger was neither spicy nor crunchy. On the positive side, the fries and music were great. As a US student going to college in Northfield,...

Went here twice in a few days, both times for lunch. Food was good and reasonably priced (for a tourist place). It is just off the Thamel main shopping street and has a huge number of seats, but if you see its fairly full when you walk in you might want to reconsider, when its busy the kitchen really did...

For those who like lots of music, fine but personally I like quieter and more intimate places As I said it is ok but feel the Cafe could do a lot better

Normally, I avoid obviously Westernised places but after my trek all I wanted was a taste of home so I went in here and didn't regret it. There is a good choice of foods: mexican, burgers, curry etc and prices are expensive for Nepal but about average for Thamel. I went back the next morning for a coffee and was... More

We ate here about three weeks ago and my boyfriend ended up with food poisening. He has been terribly ill for three days! Because of the beef fried rice that wasn't freshly prepared. Moreover, the service was very bad: we only got our drinks when we finished lunch and it was quite expensive. Big NO NO !!!

Imagine this: You sit down at 7:45am, slightly chilly, but ready to warm up. You order the most reverred dish on the menu - the huevos rancheros - which is what you came for. No music is playing, the waiter is bored but forced to stand, and it is alone at the peak of the tourist season. The landscape of... More
