Most milkshakes you find in Ktm are what the name suggests. However these milkshakes are thick and creamy. Perfect for consuming and cooling down. They are a bit on the costly side but well worth it. Recommended.

The staff were quite friendly. The chips were not corn, some kind of poor substitute. Bean dip was very watery. Very large chicken burrito with a portion of chicken that was so tiny it was not noticeable in the burrito, and filled entirely with rice and hot soggy lettuce. No fresh veg of any kind, no spices, no chillies, a... More

The food here was simply delicious! Great flavours and everything homemade and fresh. You can create your own burrito and choose your filling etc. (So if you are vegan, this is a great place!) I would recommend the nachos with both salsa and the bean-dip, and the burritos - which are fantastic with the combination of all the different flavours... More

Great Mexican restaurant. I had a huge burrito. It tasted like home. We will be going back before we leave Katmandu. It is near the traffic circle across from the Central Zoo on Pulchowk Road. Look for the sign on the right immediately when you leave the traffic circle.

Super sad! We had looked forward to trying this place as our last night in Nepal . Found a taxi to find it and take us.. Took about thirty minutes and then show up to see it closed due to no gas :/ Not sure if they have a fb page but might be good to check before going

As an American living abroad, I appreciate this establishment for bringing authentic mexican food to Nepal. There is no other here. Clean, friendly service and great taste as well. There is no other place in Nepal where you get free refills on iced tea as you do in Texas!

I haven't had Mexican food before I went here but if that's what Mexican food tastes like then count me in. A cozy atmosphere and great simple food. With friendly waiters and good service. Definitely a place to go. When you do. Don't forget to try the thick milkshake. It's something to die for.

I am one of the founders and the one who brought the recipes. I am back in the USA now, but I sure miss it. We had outstanding cooks, waiters and hosts.
