This hole in the wall restaurant but what can it be described as excellent authentic Japanese where you'd least expect it.. Great fresh ginger flavours to the tofu.. Great teriaki and iron etc. Just go!

The place is just across the hotel. Was too lazy to walk out any further (out whole day sightseeing at the temples already). Though the momo was a delight!! 10 pieces for less than NP400. The place is decent. But yea hospitality so-so.
