They have varieties of foods available however I had chance to have Nepal set meal (Dal - Bhat) and a mutton biryani. Even though the biryani was tasteless (no salt at all) the Nepalese set was more than delicious! Good foods to try, reasonable prices! PS: The service was kinda late!

My partner and I were looking for a casual authentic Nepalese dinner in Thamel. Our hotel recommended Himali and it was perfect. It is hidden down a small alley. The chilli chicken, momo and dhal bhat were all great. The total bill was just over AUD10.
