1905 good food and service

Good food, diverse menu. Lots of westerners so I think it's in a lot of the tour books. Dont order the steak, everything else was good.

Nice restaurant not far from the tourist area of Thamel, bit overpriced. An old palace in neo-classical style, very alike the garden of dreams which is nearby

The restaurant is set amidst a lovely garden -- a rarity in Kthamandu. The food is not bad, but the service is pathetic. The waiters look tired and not at all interested in their job. They don't smile, and just wear a long face all the time. It's a long wait for food, and the funny thing is one has... More

First I bought all the food I'd been looking for -- Italian cheese, paté, jam .. and then had a delicious breakfast in this very charming place

Great old building off Kanthi Path with tables laid out on wooden bridges above a crowded pond of water-cabbage. A bit grubby and faded but lots of character and ambience. Waiters somewhat over-eager to grab the coffee cups, so hold on tightly. Food is moderately priced and very good. The Saturday market is a must for ex-pats in the know.

The restaurant has a good menu, but what I really like it the organic market. Lots of socializing goes on there on Saturday mornings! And so much to offer, from homemade pickles to fresh bread, chocolate covered dried pears to spit-roasted chickens, homemade cheeses to egg & dairy free cookies.

Food is very ordinary. Though there are lots of people on display. Best thing about it is the Farmers Market on Saturday mornings - excellent local cheeses, breads, preserves, vegetables and smoked meats and sausages

The menu looked ok. However, the waiter misunderstood our order and the main course was cold.
