I went to Club Himalaya to have a good view of the Himalayas during my very short trip in Nepal. Unfortunately, it rained that day and the dark clouds ruled the sky.
This unfortunate turn of events was somehow compensated by the good service that I had with Club Himalaya. I only spent the afternoon there to eat lunch. I planned to stay until sunset but as stated earlier, there was no chance for me to have a good view of the mighty mountain range.
In terms of food, they have a good selection of international cuisine for people who are looking for safe food choices. I had Pad Thai and it was good (of course I didn't expect it to be as authentic as the ones that I had in Thailand, which is totally understandable). The best part of the meal was the dessert. I tried Caramel Custard and it was pure happiness for the taste buds. I also tried a local green tea during my four-hour stay and it was also good. For some reasons, it helped me relax while waiting for the sun.
The waiters are very accommodating and helpful and it takes less less than ten minutes for the food to be served. In addition, the prices are very reasonable.
By the way, they have free wi-fi which allows guests to have real-time upload. I didn't activate my data roaming thus, this service was definitely a plus for me.
I wish I had stayed a night there because I bet the view will be breathtaking in the morning. I will remember to include a stay in Club Himalaya the next time I visit Nepal.
