Worst service I’ve ever had in Nepal. Very rude wait staff. Without a doubt the worst dining experience I’ve had on any of my 4 trips to Nepal. The foods ok but it’s the service that’ll keep me from ever spending another penny there again....More

Love he atmosphere, the staff is very friendly and the food is quite good. A little pricey compared to what you’d find in Thamel, but the location makes it worth it! One of my favorite places in KTM.

The staff were abrupt and rude from the start. When we informed them that we would just be having some drinks that evening (there were plenty of free tables) the waiter rolled his eyes and sighed at us! The drinks were all nice apart from...More
