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

I recommend this restaurant if you want to enjoy good traditional Nepali or Indian food, not if you want western food. Their curries and traditional dishes are really good & tasty, and for a Lakeside located restaurant it's definitely cheaper and a good deal.

We had chow mein and momos, not bad but not the best either. The place has good wifi, which is great. Not very busy during lunch, too.

We ate here a few times while in Pokhara. This is the real deal, we had take out one night, we ate in a number of times. You can eat all over town but this place is where the locals want to come. The prices are a fraction of some of the more trendy joints and it has all the... More

We stayed a few days in Pokhara to rest, and ate almost exclusively in this restaurant. The pander butter masala and the mutton do piyaza are perfect ! Try the garlic naan also, they are very good.

We had lunch in this upstairs verandah restaurant. It offered a big range of Nepali food and all four of us chose different menu items. No one was disappointed. Prices were much more reasonable than those at Lakeside.
