Christmas Dinner

we choose this place to have our christmas dinner there. The food variety was great and a good spread, certainly not comparable to some other 5* Hotel restaurants, but I believe for Kathmandu this is on the upper level.

Ordered their Filet mignon- hard, tasteless, full of grizzle- a bad cut of meat- inedible- the setting is nice enough with its center fireplace for the winters- one can tell they are trying hard to sell this place as upscale but just like the $10 / day tourists KTM attracts they should just stick to Nepali food and be authentic...

Fantastic location (at the Yak and Yeti hotel) with a very well presented interior with tables surrounding the eponymous copper chimney as the centrepiece. Food was very good, and the service was exceptional.

When I heard there was a restaurant with great borscht in Kathmandu, I had to visit and it did not disappoint. The atmosphere was elegant but casual. I have spent considerable time in Ukraine and have had my share of borscht and this was surprisingly good. Don't miss this restaurant which also has great service all the way to chocolates... More

This was really a truly retro (in a good way) experience - you can't help but feeling like royalty here. Attentive but not intrusive service, delicious food, and really a remarkable value. Excellent and reasonable wine list, and really creative entrees. A very pleasant and unexpected surprise.

This place is a step back into the past. Retro food, wine and service (using table clothed trollies). The food was delicious, the service was great and all for a very reasonable price (given its an international restaurant). Highly recommended for a fun and quirky step back in time.

I have had many a fabuloius, romantic, delicious meals at the Chimney Room in Kathmandu. Still famous for the Bortsch Soup, I changed my usual order to include French Onion Soup and Chateaubriand. It was outstanding. I've eaten at this restaurant since 1974. Still just as excellent.
