I lived nearby this restaurant and walked by it on a daily basis, I saw the same cakes and pastries sitting on the shelf day after day, I finally went in and asked for a cup of chia, the white haired man on the counter looked at me like he didn't speak Nepali so I ordered in english and seated myself. After what felt like a very long time he finally told someone about my order (he wasn't doing anything that would have kept him) and after another long time the chia arrived in an espresso cup, this wasn't TOO uncommon to get such a small serving but I was charged 50npr which was more than double what most of the other places where charging for comparable tea. It was just bland tea with milk in it, nothing special at all.
The environment was dark and dingy, dirty tables with loud Nepali teens attempting to be rebellious, cursing and playing on the cellphones while listening to american metal music and there was a cloud of cigarette smoke that was so thick it was stinging my eyes.
I know Kathmandu isn't the cleanest place, but I really wasn't impressed with this restaurant at all, everything on the menu was very expensive (for Nepali standards), probably because this is a "famous cafe" and the service was very poor.
