We had a wonderful time at this restaurant. The food was wonderful and the potted plants were a nice touch. The desert was tiny, but delicious!

It is a very special and casual place. I will strongly recommend to bring your first dates here :) The menu is perfect and the server's recommendation is on power. The cost is very reasonable. Do have the gignermangotini mocktail and go with Chef's special.

To our safe return from our Gokyo trek we came here for dinner. Loved the ambience with the potted garden walls. It was on the cool side so the blankets and overhead heaters were appreciated. Service was very good. Started the night with Moet Champagne....More
