“good food, great atmosphere!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

All the sherpas and mountain-climbers come together here for one last bottle of Everest beer and one last slice of pizza before they head out to brave the Everest. They also return to the place to write about their experiences on a cardboard foot that's given to you, and it's put up at the restaurant. The place is filled with "footnotes" (:P), all along the walls and ceilings.
The food is only an add-on to the experience.

“Cool atmosphere, terrible service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012 via mobile

As the other reviews say, its a unique place and I'd probably even recommend it, but tonight was possibly the worst service (lack of service) I've ever seen. No waiters to be found, and when they did come around they were amazingly slow and incompetent. We were a good sized party of 14 and they would have sold us a lot more food and drinks if we could have ordered them.

“'Rum' Doodle”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

Having visited last week during Hindu festival waited almost 2 hours for very average food, no explanation for delay and hugely overpriced drinks and food menu... shame as the potential for the tales and the recent Help for Heroes EBC trek should have made this a special visit.

“cool place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

we ended up going there late in the afternoon and there was only one table of six there but I can imagine what it would have like a few hours later. Obviously a trekker kind of place with a myriad of signs (termed footprints) with notes attached to the ceiling. Read some as they really tell a story of past trekks and trekkers. The bartender was having a bad hair day but the food we ordered was very good. Wish we had the time to spend there later in evening, I'm sure it would have been a really good atmosphere. Many of the "footprints" were regarding Mt. Everest.
