Owner description: The Garden of Dreams, a neo classical historical garden, is situated in the midst of Kathmandu city, Nepal. The Garden's design has much in common with formal European gardens: paved perimeter paths, punctuated by pavilions, trellises, and various planting areas, surrounded by a sunken flower garden with a large pond at its center. It is an architectural landscape that encourages the visitor to stroll around and discover the Garden's treasures from many different vantage points.

“lovely place but don't eat in the restaurant!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

if you're looking for an escape from the crowded and noisy streets of kathmandu... this is a quiet and serene place. not a bad spot to have a coffee and cake, but don't eat in the restaurant! it's food roulette - some of the dishes were fine but several of them were frankly terrible. better to save your appetite for fire&ice across the street, which is always delicious!

“Serene and cultural”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

A great escape from the bustle hustle of the city. It was a peaceful and relaxing place. A wonderful place to wind down after a long day out. I recommend staying long enough for star gazing at night. Very romantic. And very interesting to watch people.

“Beautiful place, not the best kitchen in town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

Garden of dreams is a beautiful green oasis near the entrance of Thamel. It's very beautiful and worth visiting during different times of the day. Unfortunately the food isn't amazing, so I'd take a book and a pot of tea instead.
