“Some of the Best Chips EVER”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2011

I consider myself a bit of a foodie and thought I had seen it all before when it came to chippies.

But BK's just blew me out of the water.

Went there twice and ordered Chips and Samosas the first time and Chips and Buffalo Meatballs (they dont serve beef in Nepal) the second.

The chips were incredibly good. Fried perfectly to give you a great crisp outer layer with a soft inside. They were just so tasty on their own with a bit of salt that you needed no other sauce.

But, the sauces were amazing too. You get to order 1 sauce free with a plate of chips. There are about 8-10 different sauces that you can add on for about 25 cents each. We picked the Special sauce, the hot ketchup, the devils sauce in addition to the normal ketchup. These were truly icing on the cake.

The Samosas were pretty damn good as well. The potato filling was flavoured with cumin, onions and a bit of mustard seeds. Almost Perfect.

The buffalo meatballs on the other hand were exquisite. Crispy and slightly burnt on the outside and tender and juicy on the inside.

If you do enjoy, a good snack or even Chips as a meal, this is the place to go.

It is so popular that they ran out of fries by about 8:00 in the evening.

“The place to go for chips in Kathmandu”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2011

This is the place to go for chips in Kathmandu. I discovered it in 2004 and returned several times in 2010. It's expanded and the prices have gone up but that has happened across the board in Thamel. It has been going for over 25 years and consistently produces excellent french fries and momos. They also do fried chicken but I haven't tried it. Don't make the mistake of ordering too much, the serves are large. One large fries is enough for lunch for two people. I love this place.

“cheap and cheerful chippy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2010

Not a gourmet dining experience but for cheap and tasty chips (momos, spring rolls etc) then there is nowhere better. Would definitely return
