I came here for the Tibetan hot pot. I tried the buff meat option, it was really good. The meal comes with plenty of sides. Fried rice, fried noodles, dumplings, potatoes and tea.

We went for a late lunch on a Saturday. Liked the fact the opening time is flexible. Best momos we have tasted! We also had the meat pie. Really worth trying!

I ate here several times and especially liked the soups, the tea and the spinach tofu dish. The service is friendly and efficient. Owners are from Tibet and this is one of the original restaurants and hotels in the Thamel area of Kathmandu
