Tasty Traditional Dishes & Good Prices

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 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.

We have had dinner here now three times during our week in pokhara. This is by far the best place we have eaten at. The service is outstanding and the food is wonderful and all to a very good price! I would gladly pay more for that kind of service and taste!

Given all the positive reviews I have no idea how I was served the descrace that was my dinner. I've been told by the hotel staff where I'm staying that it's gone down hill since a recent change in management.
