There weren't too many locals in Nepali Chulo the night we went there. Most of the diners were western tour groups who enjoyed the multi-course meal, with traditional Nepali entertainment. This is a good introduction to Nepali cuisine but there are better (and cheaper) places to sample the local fare.

It was a very nice place. They have this cultural programs and have beautiful decor. But the food is just average. Nowhere near regular Thakali Restaurant foods.

Over priced and can defintely get better nepalese food for cheaper in Thamel. Service was poor, perhaps because waiters were being treated poorly by the maitre d. This restaurant only survives because big hotels send their guests there. Atmosphere okay and restaurant clean. Needs a wine list.
