I had a curry, when I went there was a discount on certain Indian dishes, which was nice. There is quite a nice big balcony. All the staff are well presented and professional. The restaurant is expensive but the quality and service is definitely of a higher calibre and the food is tasty. I would recommend

Excellent restaurant, the food is really good. But what made our dinner there memorable was the service of an employee, Deep Bdv Bista. This employee exceeded customer service expectations with his incredible kindness and the time he took to explain his culture and culinary traditions of his country. If you go to Kathmandu, the Third eye is the place to go if you want to eat delicious Nepalese food in a wonderful atmosphere.

i had ordered a steak,wine,other Indian foods,food were good,wine was bit a new types,i complained,the heavy man came and said ,the wine is like this only,we serve it,no way to change it.because it cost lots to a company, if a server can't handle the problems,what would he/she do,training is;t enough.these staffs are proud ,because they have lot sales,don,t want to listen to a guest,needs.it;s really bad attitudes of the staffs. later a man came,one of the server suggested to speak to a New Manager,he came running,he asked what had happened,i explained him,stakes,and wine weren't up to the mark. he Apologized for the mistakes,and replaced the stakes,he too explained that the wine were of same grapes of Syrazeh,but the production company were new,anyway,he played a important role to handle the problems,he offered some homemade sweets,were happy after solving the problems. howeever attitudes of the staffs need to be monitored by the management team of the company.

Super expensive and very insensitive staff…we (4 friends) ordered for veg Newari thali costing 995 NPR per person…after checking about refill, we were told only rice and lentils are allowed for refills. So we asked for more lentil (daal) and Rice. After making us wait for 15 mins, the waiter gets just one cup of daal and asks us to share amongst 4 of us. Very disappointing and staff need to learn manners and hospitality.

Average food, takes ages to get daal (lentil) when you have opted for a Thali. Ideally refills for a thali concept should be quick so that customers don’t have to wait when they are in the middle of their meal. Ambience and food is over-hyped. Very expensive too. Staff needs to coordinate better and be courteous.

After our 12 day trek to EBC, we were really looking forward to a nice steak. We chose Third eye after reading the reviews. First impressions were good and the starters were tasty. Then our steak sizzlers came out…they looked amazing but we soon found out that the steaks were overcooked & not in the least way tender. They were grizzly and very chewy Totally disappointed ☹️

On a busy Thamel street this restaurant is easy to find. Also a nice outside area with heaters. Service good and fast. But I think the prices were high for Nepal. And too high for the quality of food. For the price paid I just expected more. I had a vegetable curry where the vegetables were not visible, just sauce. But taste was good. Big rice portion (cost extra) and plain nan bread. In and out in 40minutes! I tried another indian restaurant (Kantipur) during my short KTM stay and I loved their food 10x times better. But I assume in Third Eye a big part of the money you pay is for the restaurant ambiance. All in all it was fine but for me not good enough to eat again.

Overpriced, undercooked, under spiced, wrong ingredients…rubbish. Order fish kebabs which were edible but undercooked. Fish kebabs should be cooked through to the point they become flaky. Not taste to them. Chicken Korma was like no other Korma I have ever had in the UK or India. That said it was quite nice. Chefs Speciality was Leg of lamb in a rich sauce. The leg turned out to be a fatty cheap lamb shank and sauce tasted like tomato soup with garam masala and chopped onions! It was disgusting. We only had soft drinks and the bill came to £35 (converted fromNPR) Steer clear and in general be wary about eating in the tourist areas like Thamel and go more native.

This restaurant disappointed me. I have eaten here on three separate occasions and enjoyed it hence why I was back with 14 people. My friend ordered a Chicken Kiev and it arrived red in the middle. When it came to paying for the meals the restaurant wouldn't split the bill, 'because it would take 30 minutes' We did it ourselves and it took longer. The arrogance of this once fine eatery is unbelievable. We certainly won't be going back. Apologies to my friends because I recommended the restaurant!

This place holds a special place in my heart. The terrace dining area exudes a pleasant atmosphere that is truly relaxing. The food served here is of high quality and satisfies the taste buds, while the service provided is exceptional. The staff members are friendly and accommodating, adding to the overall positive experience. It's a wonderful spot to unwind and enjoy a delightful dining experience.

This is a place we'd come back again and again. In the heart of Thamel this authentic Indian restaurant put a smile on our faces. I love Tikka Masala, so I had to order that with butter naan while my boyfriend decided to order the same but with rice. Boy did we ordered a bit too much. They had great portions and everything tasted delicious. He never cared or like Indian food, too much spice for his taste, but he loved every bit of their tikka masala. He couldn't stop raving about it for the next few days and when we came back from the trek, this was the first place we went to. The service was great, everyone was really attentive, and made us feel welcome. Don't forget to try their ginger honey lemon tea, very refreshing and keeps you warm while you wait for the orders.

this is good place for authentic Indian food,no spicy,no too much sweets,all food are fine,good in proportions ,we had chicken tikka maharani,varieties of naan,varies of veg and noon and non veg Indian curries,kabbas, steaks,we ordered ,rare medium,it the quality of the steak is really chip,neither i could bite,nor the steak knifes seems to be of a good quality,and the steak being served in the sizzler platters,which was difficult to cut,we expeceted the steak to be served in the plates,if informed before we wouldn't have ordered,still this concept needs to changed. rare medium steak we order,but the pate was burned,steak was fully well done,not up to the mark. it;s really disgusting to have changed once,and 2nd time also wasn't up to the mark.3rd eye restaurant is well known restaurant in the Thamel as well as in European countries, owners /management needs to be serious about it.selling chip things,shouldn't be there priorities either. Mr.Manager later canceled the steak from my bill,due to not up to the mark.Mr.Nepali Apologize asked if i would like to have something as a complimentary , immediate action which was taken by Mr.Nepali was really appreciated and weldone ,Thank you Mr.Nepali,for handling the complians,and solving it at once. Mr.Harka thank you for letting me meet Mr.Nepali a Manager,we had a good chat and everything was ok. thank you team , please improve the quality of the STEAK AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.

This place has the best tasting food in Nepal. North Indian cuisine is up to the mark and staff is courteous and pleasant. The ambiance of this place is unmatched and it has roof top seating as well. That's one of my favourite places to sit and enjoy my time. Rupa thapad and Sunita bhujel were very joyously serving and made us feel comfortable, warm and at home. Truly a delightful experience we had at this place.

This is one of the earliest restaurants in the Thamel area, I remember it being at the same location back in the late 80s.. The building is old and has character. There is outdoor seating on both the ground floor and the roof. They also have bench seating if you don't like chairs. The Indian and Nepali food is excellent and the portions are large enough to share between several people. The prices are higher than usual, but you get what you pay for.

Ordered both chicken and mutton biryani. Both were tasty. Servers had the usual good standard as well. However, the guy at the reception gave us a disapproving look when we refused to tip by credit card payment. To the restaurant owner, I have 3 things to say. 1) I don't think I'm obliged to tip, therefore I don't deserve that look on your face. 2) If you are so unhappy with credit card payment, just make it cash payment only. 3) If I were you, I would've probably added the cost of the service charge in the price then claim that there is "no service charge", so I wouldn't shamelessly give an attitude when customers don't tip me.
