Walking past we saw a free streetside table and asked to dine in. Helpful staff, nice scene, basically empty but any choice of tables, including upstairs. Has a wide variety of dishes, so we opted for 2 Indian dishes with naan, and drinks to match....The meal was delicious, one of the best Tikka Masala dishes ever!! Staff are a little vacant but busy watching the street scene, and the bill was brought promptly & a good price. I'd suggest swapping out the grumpy looking doorman for someone a lot more welcoming, and train them on inviting people in!! We'd happily dine here again... it used to be a hot favourite for Pokhara locals but lots more options now.More

This restaurant is centrally located at the lake side and have good flow of customers. Nice ambiance. Food quality is average. But the horrible part was awful customer service. The waiter came to the table first to take order, next to serve the food and...lastly to handover the check. Unprofessional behavior. Didn't even ask for water. When I asked for water, his attitude was like he was doing a favor to me. Worst part was when I complain to the supervisor about the bad service, she gave me a cold look.More

When lockdown started in Pokhara, Moondance was a lifesaver for so many foreigners who found themselves stranded. It was a stressful time for everyone but moondance provided dahl baht free of charge for anyone who needed and what awesome dahl baht it was! I wish...I could have experienced the actual restaurant in normal times. The staff were amazing, and even helped in facilitating communication between tourists and the tourism board. We are so thankful, and hope to return one day.More

We had fish and beef for dinner. Both were excellent. The dishes were arranged very tastefully: The fish was on a stick, which was put upright in the middle of the plate with the sides arranged around it. The beef with cheese and vegetables was...on a sizzling plate. We also got two pizza pieces for free as appetizers, due to Happy Hour. They have a good selection of beer, you even get German Kölsch beer. The restaurant is a little dark inside. The interior design is quite interesting, you see a lot copper. Check out the restrooms with the amazing wash basin. The restaurant is quite high-class so the prices are high as well, but worth the visit when you are in town.More

A huge Thank You to the owners and staff at Moondance, Pokhara - they literally saved our lives and those of many other people by opening up a free food stall for foreigners when we were stranded in Nepal following sudden lockdown due to Coronavirus....Armed police and militia roamed in jeeps, shouting at people to keep off the streets; all shops and restaurants were closed and there was no information whatsoever. It was a very scary and stressful time; but the wonderful Moondance owners opened up their hearts and kitchen and provided delicious hot vegetarian food to takeaway, not once - but twice - a day. Thank you so much, we can never repay your kindness and generosity.More

I've traveled somewhat regularly to Pokhara, Nepal since 2011 and this continues to serve quality food that is consistent time after time. Lots of seating for large groups and small groups alike. Accepts credit cards. Some of the best restaurant staff in Pokhara--just the right...amount of attentiveness for a pleasant meal.More

this is more tourist orientated than many restaurants on Pokhara's lakeside . The ambience is reasonable , service also Ok , my rainbow trout was good although not cheap by Pokhara standards . The re house wine was disappointing and expensive
