Food was OK, nice surroundings amidst chaos of Thamel. Good entertainment. Relaxed atmosphere but still busy to give a feel of things happening

we came here on our last night in KTM because it was close to our hotel. It's right by KGH and we were feeling a bit too tired/ lazy to overcome the gut feeling that it was too close to the middle of Thamel to be much good... we should have made the effort to go a little further. Nice... More

The menu was very extensive and i choose chicken burritoes. The service was slow even though the place wasn't busy. Food was dissapointing I enjoyed the beer though.

This cafe/restaurant is tucked off of the streets of Thamel. It is peaceful and quiet and a nice place to recharge yourself. We enjoyed an ice coffee and mint tea. Was hoping to get a piece of cheesecake to indulge in but they were out. We looked at the menu which had a great variety and I believe anyone would... More

I had a couple of meals at Northfield and was never disappointed by any. The food seemed to be prepared freshly and the setting is simply stunning. Of course, you might be able to find cheaper Dal Bhat around the corner, but Northfield is a bit of a treat and you do get what you pay for!

Northfield cafe had a interesting blend of genres. We listened to a live traditional Nepalese band playing Irish folk tunes while dining under Japanese lanterns over southwest Americian/Mexican cuisine. Well back up a bit. My food was Mexican inspired but wasn't exactly on target. I had chicken enchaladas and while my enchalada was busting full of shredded chicken unlike any... More

We dinned there for evening meal the other couple was vegetarian and we are not. We all left happy and full. Ordered a wide variety of foods from pizza to masala. I highly recommend this resturant if you are in the Tamil market area.

This place tucked in off the main strip has a huge selection of food items at reasonable prices and has live Nepalese music while you eat. The mexican selection is extensive. My burrito was very good and a large portion. Reasonably priced.
