We had the Yala special grilled chicken and a brownie. They were both delicious! Would come back any time. Nice little spot in an alleyway and good prices too.

Out of the way, quiet location. Lots of vegetarian options with a delicious spice to them. Opted for lots of different local nepalese food and was not disappointed with any of the the dishes. LOVED the badam sadeko and the c:mo:mo. Highly recommend a visit!
