Great casual dinner

My partner and I were looking for a casual authentic Nepalese dinner in Thamel. Our hotel recommended Himali and it was perfect. It is hidden down a small alley. The chilli chicken, momo and dhal bhat were all great. The total bill was just over AUD10.

The local restaurant serves typical Nepali dishes. Nepali Thali set, Muton Kabab, Rajkhani, Choila are the one I like most here. Nice and fresh food with local taste. The Dal Bhat is nice. Fresh seasonable vegetable, snacks are really nice. Specially while we have friends gathering they can customize and prepare food as we wish. Nice place Highly Recommend

It was a while that I was looking for an affordable authentic Newari feast. Most were overpriced. in the middle of international Thamel, was a hidden gem, that offered just the right spread.
