We had found this place on a previous trip to Pokhara, recommended by locals, and we visited again some ten years later and found it to be just as good. It's set inland from the lake side so probably not visited by many tourists, however it is worth the taxi ride as the food is incredible value (100 NPR for... More

We ate here twice and both times my meals were reasonably good whilst my partner's were pretty poor. On our first visit I had the channa massala with rice and garlic nan. My partner had the chilli chicken. The channa massala was quite a big portion and very tasty, the chicken chilli however was spicy but the chicken very small... More

Went here twice as was the best place we found in Pokhara, its located right in the centre but is still more of a locals place. TV was not a problem as power was off most of the time. Food was tasty but chicken sizzzler a bit over cooked in parts. Service was pretty good for Nepal. Some dishes like... More

This place is rightly famous for the famous Nepalese dish called Momo, a savory dumplings filled with different meats and then steamed away in gigantic pots. The ambience is lacking, but the momos are really tasty.

We were recommended by our hotel owner because we said we wanted to have Indian Food. And it was surprisingly good! The food there was super delicious! And the people there are super nice! They had that natural and genuine way of service - one of the best I've experienced! Definitely our favorite restaurant in Pokhara. And the price...considering the... More

Took me a little while to find this place, as its on the 2nd floor of the building, but was very worth it. Ordered the chili momo, banana milkshake, and hot lemon and honey drink for around 400 rupee ^^ I'm living in Pokhara for 2 months, and this place is my 'old reliable'. Been here several times and never... More

The food at Almond's is probably some of the best in Pokhara. We ate here on at least five occasions. It's populated by locals mostly, although more and more Westerners seem to find the small entrance to make your way upstairs. The big downside of this place is their giant TV which blares TV nonsense at too loud a volume.... More

I always go to this restaurant during my visits to Pokhara. This restaurants has one of the best cold coffee and momos. This restaurant is targeted to indian and nepali customers, so their food can be a tad spicy if you are not used to too much spicy food. The atmosphere is ok with good service. The food here is...

If you want genuine local vegetarian food then Almonds is the place to go. Their momos were the best and spiciest on the main strip and the vegetarian thali was delicious. My only criticism is that it was too loud with Bollywood hits blaring out of the speakers for the mostly local crowd - so don't go if you want... More

I love this restaurant because you can bet that you will get your money's worth. Granted it doesn't serve extraordinary cuisines but it sure makes delicious Momos, Chowmein, Sizzler, Pizza, other dishes that aren't adventurous but can fill an appetite. Great hangout for family and friends.
