I'm here now, and this restaurant make me feel very comfortable, the waiters are kind, and the food was really good. I have eaten mutton soup and wild pork as main, very delicious Also, they served me Nepal wind, a kind of liquor and this is what I need to finish this experience. Cheers from Nepal!

Happened to stumble upon Thamel House while wondering around Thamel and it looked so inviting we returned that evening. Everything was of the highest standard, the welcome, the service and of course the food. Sadly we weren't hungry enough to try the speciality set menu, but the meal we had, complete with the small complimentary side dishes and tasters was... More

Visited the place with my sisters and mother, 6 pax. Had the nepalese combo, at 1150 rupee, 1050 for the vegetarian. Fantastic food. The meal was interrupted by nice and short dancing acts. A nice place to meet and sum up the experiences in Nepal!

Local friends recommended this restaurant. Its deco is lovely- garden and balcony setting made it felt like alfresco dining. I had the dinner sets which comprised of appetisers,rice, sides dishes and mains. The appetisers were Nepali salads, momo (like Chinese steamed dumplings) with rice wines. Depending on preference, the momo could be of vegetable or meat filling, we had both... More

This restaurant delivered such a great authentic traditional food food delivered by great service . Highly recommend place to eat your dinner while enjoying cultural dancing. Raksi (Nepali rice wine) is a must try ! Don't forget your little Bhudda gift while leaving the restaurant... such a nice farewell I would definitely visit this place again anytime I'm in Kathmandu.

The set menu gives a selection of dishes in small portions, although more of the main course ones were offered. The food was good but not noteworthy. However, the setting of a courtyard garden and a balcony are very pleasant and the short cultural dance show is a bonus. The staff were attentive and friendly. The prices are above the... More

This restaurant has a colourful Nepali cultural dance performance while you have your meal. Tidy, older style woodworked and decorative restaurant inside bustling Thamel, Kathmandu. You get complimentary popadoms, condiments and Newari alcoholic drinks whilst you order your meal. This restaurant has 3 levels, go to the second level and sit in the middle area so you can look down... More

Ate here twice while in Kathmandu, it was really excellent. Highly recommend the Bandhel Tareko and the Aloo Tareko. Getting a meat plate with veg. curry and rice plus a large beer will set you back only about $10. That may be a little pricier than other places in Kathmandu, but only by a few dollars. The difference in quality... More
