Perfect place for Nepali cuisine. It is amazing taste and unbeatable for the price. I loved the nepali thali. The meat was full with flavour and I cannot have enough of it. I would also recommend the smoked pork. I would gladly go there all the time.

I wish I could write about the food in this establishment - but for once was so fed up with the poor, extremely slow service, that we left before we got our order to our table. We were attracted here by its nice ambience - a nice open setting, quite popular, tucked behind the throbbing Thamel streetlight. We ordered, and... More

ate here on my first night in KTM,, suggested by a local nepali friend. Apart from the fact that the dinig area was dirty, and dark, the dhal bhat that was ordered was not to my taste. To be fair, perhaps other items on the menu were better but one can only write on experience, and this definitely wasnt to... More

We found this little hidden away restaurant by chance while wandering Thamel. The staff were friendly and the food came pretty quickly. We ordered the chicken curry and rice, and the chicken thupka. It was delicious. You couldn't take that curry from me if you tried. The menu isn't huge but has all the favorites you want at a Nepalese... More

They have varieties of foods available however I had chance to have Nepal set meal (Dal - Bhat) and a mutton biryani. Even though the biryani was tasteless (no salt at all) the Nepalese set was more than delicious! Good foods to try, reasonable prices! PS: The service was kinda late!
