Really nice place in Kathmandu for food and drinks. We have been there again and again because the music let the time fly bye and the cake is amazing. See you again!

We went to the restaurant to celebrate Nepalese New Year 20178. The place was not crowded and ambience was really good. The Old House is a beautiful place with lot of plants and creepers! Bar is good. We had Lychee martini, red wine and whisky...and all the drinks were good. However, food turned out to be a disappointment. Except porks wrapped in bacon all the other dishes were mediocre. Rice was undercooked. Service was fast.More

We had lunch here. We were given a lunch set menu but unfortunately there were quite a few items on the menu they did not have. The food was nice but nothing to write home about and the price is relatively high for Kathmandu. The...setting is nice - some character and plenty of greenery with the walls of pot plants. The waitresses were polite and attentive. A safe option if you happen to be in this area.More

A nice restaurant near to the Yak and Yeti Hotel and the main street of Kathmandu. Food was excellent and very reasonable priced for the quality. Good choice of wine and again sensible prices. You can either sit inside or outside. Worth a visit.More

It was my first night and first visit to Kathmandu. Lovely, cozy atmosphere, with twinkling lights and central fire for warmth at outdoor bar. Buffet was so delicious, freshest salad and Nepal cuisine. Original Bee Honey drink and non alcoholic watermelon. Full bar with wines...from Chile, Australia, local beers and whiskey. As always the people are incredibly helpful and sweet.More

Dinner was ok. Wine far too expensive for plonk. Waiters very attentive. Atmosphere relaxed but classy. Cold when doors left open, which was often. It was decent enough, but with so much competition in Kathmandu they need to up their game.More

Absolutely fantastic food with a halloween special: Everything was decorated and they had a certain menu with great details like olive spiders or finger cookies. The cocktails were fabulous, one served in a coconut and one burning - both for a good price.

My fiancée and I really enjoyed the food. It was delicious and flavorful. My fiancée ordered the beetroot ostrich, which was so tender. I ordered spaghetti with a spicy sauce and it was just light enough with a lovely hint of spice. Our waiter, Suman,...was knowledgeable and super helpful as well.
