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

Brekky and coffee are pretty good here. It is in central Thamel and very pleasant. Staff are good and the beer is cold, quite a pleasant experience.

This is a spacious restaurant in centre of Thamel. Menu is comprehensive and they service continental, Mexican, Nepali and Indian cuisine amongst other. This place is frequented by expatriates and start getting people by 6 pm in the evening. The variety of alcohol is also good. Amongst the food I ordered Momos were very good and portions impressive. This appears... More

Had a lunch here following a trekking trip. The food was quite good, and there were no problems with the service. It is oriented toward tourists and certain Nepalis that business with tourists. The atmosphere wouldn't win accolades for local cultural flavor, but as said the food is quite good.

Food and service were ok, not going to say it was the best food we've had but it was nice and good service. Felt the restaurant on a whole was overpriced however. They do have a good selection of food, we normally prefer places frequented by locals and there was not one local in site!

Thank StuartandNaomi
