The property was once a palace and was decorated with antiques. We get to taste the local food and it's delicious to my taste. While dining we watched the local dance of different Nepalese clan with their different costumes.

The place is quite small, the dances were nothing impressive and they only performed 3 songs. The food wasn’t impressive and the drinks were terrible. Definitely a tourist trap so don’t fall for it, is a waste of your time and money.

Prices can be more reasonable. Service is good. The unlimited local rice wine is worth trying here. Good ambiance. The starters are very filling and by the time main course is served stomach is full :)). Must visit for a Nepali Khana set .

Very average food (Nepalese set menu). Mediocre show. Lots of tables. Lots of customers. Bored staff. Etc... You know ? The sort of tourist trap where your guide or your travel agency likes to take you because they get a deal or a kickback... Avoid...More

People are unfair about this place. It is quite reasonably priced for a meal and a cultural show combined and one normally pays more for worse service. We paid £11 each for about 5 courses and it included almost unlimited rice wine! The long tables...More
