We ate here two times during our nights around Thamel. It was quiet with good service and the Goat Cheese main was sublime. The menu is smallish, western with Nepali influences but there was always something for everyone. Service was efficient and food was fresh which is why we ate here two times. Enjoy!

Found this place by accident, but was very pleasantly surprised, not typical Nepalese food, but very well cooked and presented food. located off one of the main streets, the garden offers a dust free zone and lower noise levels, the top terrace offers fine views of a hidden Stupa. They also have rooms available for rent. The staff were helpful... More

Well done Kunal! Keeping up the standards of fine dining. Tucked inside the middle of Thamel with nice tables and beautifully chosen and well-kept plants decorating the courtyard. Delicious food: vegetarian and the best steak to be found in Nepal!

I go to Cafe Mitra occasionally for the food. It is expensive, but worth it entirely. The ambiance and service is nice, not amazing, but the food is superb. I am yet to be disappointed.

Cafe Mitra is in Thamel, and though small, is brilliant in its cooking department. That's not surprising as the owner, Kunal, is a terrific chef and has taught his kitchen staff to excel. Whenever my husband and I visit Kathmandu, which is at least twice a year, we make it a point to go to Cafe Mitra. My husband always... More

I stayed here in April for 4 nights. Initially it was only for 2 nights however I felt so secure and content I decided not to risk changing accommodation and was glad I did. Staff were knowledgeable, friendly and attentive, always more than happy to help whether it be for a chat or to book a car or a restaurant.... More

It was a pleasure meeting Kunal the owner of the cafe during our dinner. We had a great time there and it was quite interesting to talk to Kunal and food was awesome. It gave us a feeling of being at home.

Mitra cafe tucked away in one of the many corners of Thamel has excellent food! The set up is cosy and quite lovely, with hints of red, white, green and blue here and there. The snapper by far was my favorite dish from the steak and minced pork we ordered but I have to say it took forever for our... More

The food here is excellent we came here twice, before and after our trek. The service is great and the best spot to sit is upstairs near the Stupa...you may see the occasional monkey wondering past ;)
