All foods whenever possible are organically produced from local sources and will be served by young, enthusiastic and motivated people. Most are students taking their diplomas at a

We went here just one night and to be honest I was not that impressed. With so many nice restaurants in the area this one is just average.

This restaurant is close to the centre of Thamel. They have good selection of both local and western food. IT is a very clean restaurant, professional staff and tasty food. I wish I had found this restaurant earlier.
