Wonderful food at amazing prices ($150 for breakfast). Nir is personable and friendly and this little hide away a favorite of travelers. The restaurant supports schools and programs in Eastern Nepal.

Hi,

Thanks for your kind words of support. The prices are going to have to go up soon, we are barely making a profit as the price of things from the market has gone up so much and we haven't increased our prices to reflect this. But we hope you still come and enjoy the food!

“Great menu, slow and friendly with www”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2013

"Toast", at the end of long hallway off of Phulbhari, is a westerner's magnet. Free www and nice outdoor seats are partly why. Do watch out, after the farmer next door fertilizers it stinks in the garden and flies can be bothersome. Mostly, though, it was no problem. Plan to wait an hour from order to food on the table. Everything I had there was good, and the place is known to be okay for the non Nepali belly.

Thanks for your review of our place. We are constantly training new staff as this is one of the main objectives of Sailung TriNetra..so apologies if the service is sometimes slow

“Best Palak Paneer yet in Nepal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2013

I see now why western students around here often eat nowhere else. Inexpensive and delicious, this "off the main drag" locale should not be missed in Boudha. (Off the main drag because it's not always entirely easy to find, but well worth it anyway). Highly recommended, and it wasn't just because of Sarasvati!

“Great, hidden, garden restaurant...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2013

Toast is located on a side street behind the Stupa. Once found, never forgotten. I have eaten there many times & never been disappointed. Filling, tasty food - Nepali, Tibetan and their version of British/ US.
The staff are helpful & very friendly.
One of my favourites in Bouddha.

Hi,
We sent up Toast almost 7 years ago, it's taken time and a lot of effort and sweat to get to this point. Thanks for your support and encouraging review, it makes it worthwhile
Cheers
