“Mmmmm falafel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

Had great dinner there.

Get the combo plate to share about 500 rupees good babagunesh and falafel although thought they shuld have had hummus on the platter.

A friend got a soup and didn't think much of it but it does specialize in Turkish food etc. so stick to that and you will be very happy!

Ambiance is pretty cool, sit down on pillows for meals- although smokers can smoke wherever ruins it a bit.

“Amazing food, excellent cocktails & unbeatable value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012 via mobile

Busy and buzzing great atmosphere and excellent menu. The best value restaurant that we visited in 7 days. Went for dinner and we liked it so much that we went for breakfast the following morning. There was a powercut but they were still able to prepare the food. If you are visiting Kathmandu, you have to try this place at least once!

“Amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

The food here is awesome, make sure to order the falafal and a milk chai. Everything is so delicious and at decent prices. Food has flavor, vegetables are fresh and desert is superb!

“Great food, excellent atmosphere!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

I came almost here every day during my 7 days in Kathmandu - the food was amazing! I thought the hommous would be better though. The platters are good for sharing but the individual dishes were nicer. My favourite was the Royal Zucchini Pie. Also, 10/10 for their Fresh Mint Lemonade! Strongly recommended! The first thing I did when I returned to Kathmandu from a trek was to get a mint lemonade!
The only downside (although this is normal in Nepal) was all the smoking in an enclosed space - it was quite bothersome. Get's very crowded after 7pm so worth getting there a little early.

“Delicious but...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

We ate here twice during our stay and found the food to be very nice. Some great flavours that we hadn't eaten for quite some time.

Unfortunately, we were not the only ones that were looking forward to eating our food. On our second visit we encountered a few cockroaches (3) climbing over the table. As nice as it is to eat on the floor surrounded by comfy pillows, I guess it's not the easiest to clean.

We probably won't eat here again, nor would we recommend it.
