It is a smallish restaurant in Thamel but tucked away in a block so it's quiet and has its own atmosphere. It has quite a wide selection of food on the menu, western and local dish. I had Thukpa, which was very good, and it comes with very nice khursani.

This is a small place in the crowded streets of thamel. Very peaceful and beautiful ambience. Indoor and outdoor seating available. We went for breakfast and had cheese sandwich, tuna sandwich garlic bread and honey and lemon pancake all were very delicious. Masala tea wasn't that good. They provide free Wi-Fi.

I ate here on a few occasions and was impressed by the quality of the food. There is a relaxed atmosphere in a courtyard setting and food is cooked to order. I ate everything from momos to curry to chicken and chips and it was all well cooked and tasty. You can see into the kitchen and it's clean with... More

My wife and I can highly recommend the coffee and veggie momo's from the Big Belly. Unbeatable taste and great prices. It's a must try when you visit Thamel.

I try to eat local foods wherever I go, but like to start my meal with some vegetables. Big Belly has a beautiful and hearty (big) chef salad. I'm looking forward to returning and trying more of the dishes, but will continue to order the chef salad as a starter.

You ever want to try the traditional Nepali dish for the first time, please try it here and you won't regret it! Amazing platter with rice and different curries and free re-fills 😉 I tried their beef sizzler and chicken sizzler as well, and it was really tasty. We came back here for the rest of the days we stayed... More
