Finally found a restaurant that served naan!

I've been in Lakeside a few days now and a lot of the restaurants have been unable to cook naan due to the fuel shortage. However, this restaurant not only made naan but made dishes we were unable to find anywhere else. Just that in itself is impressive! The food was tasty, service was friendly... read more

The food was really great, price is good and the service is also very nice. The food came fast, compared to other places we have visited in pokhara. The Nan bread was SO good!! The ice tea was not that good tho... We have become regulars and will be visiting again!

I really enjoyed MoMo in the afternoon of a rainy day. It was so freshly and tasty. The restaurant was clean and staffs were friendly. It is in third floor just at the heart of the the city, Chipledhunga. It may be difficult to handicapped person. I wish to visit again!

We loved Almonds, really good Indian food for a great price. We were in the Lakeside branch, it's just down the road from Maya Pub with a nice upstairs balcony overlooking the street. We went a bit wild and ordered Butter Chicken, Chicken Sag, Vegetable Curry, Peshwari Naan, Garlic Naan (which were HUGE!) and two rice between the two of... More

Was our choice for Sunday evening with a group of 14. Service was faster than most Nepali restaurants, with drinks being brought out quickly. Food was pretty good, the chicken MoMo's were a bit spicier than elsewhere and the chilli ("chilly") version nearly set our Japanese team member on fire. Protip: tomato sauce, on the MoMo's LIBERALLY. Pizzas were a... More

We went here after reading the favourable reviews on trip advisor, and the recommendation in the Rough Guide to Nepal book, but the food we had was really not nice at all. We had vegetable pakoras as a starter which were really nice, but the main courses were revolting. Both me and my partner had different types of kofta dishes... More

This is easily accessible restaurant at the heart of downtown-even if you do not have your own transport facility. This is popular among local people, owner serving the food, fast service, value for money.

It was about to rain so we rushed in to this nearest restaurant. The restaurant is on 2nd floor which makes it a perfect place to have a view of Pokhara's hustle. The view gets more amazing in the evening and the interior is old but beautiful. We ordered a Momo and Naan(Indian bread) which turned out to be delicious,then... More
