The location has more character than many other tourist pairs because care was brought to architecture and decoration. Broad band menu with some focus on Indian food probably reflecting the cook nationality.we unfortunately waited more than 45 minutes on there almost empty restaurant, suggesting that just because of monsoon not enough staff was put in the kitchen.food was good.

Awesome ambience. Beautiful interiors. Probably the best toilet in the lane too. Service was nice. Courteous staff. Good energy generally. We ordered a beer and fried buff momos. Certainly the oiliest momos we've eaten in Nepal! Besides that, we had a nice time.

Went with my family. Service was great, very attentive. Had the special Thai red curry and it was lovely, the rice serving was huge. We only had one round of beers yet the bill came out quite expensive in comparison with other restaurants in Pokhara.

We've been there in winter and they had a fire going in the basement floor. You can sit in the first floor part as well looking out onto the main lakeside road. No lake views, though. Food is excellent. Good choice of drinks.

Great place for infinite happy hour cocktails, but I'm always worried about places with huge menu choice. The pizza was inedible but they kindly removed from our bill. Slow but friendly service overall and lovely setting for our group.

I just spent two and a half hours with four MAI TAI "Happy Hour" Cocktails. The bar tender knows how to shake them at least one minute. They went very well with the green Thai Curry with rice. Excellent!!! See you again tomorrow.

Maya is a great stop in place for a tea and snack in between lake visits. I would often pop in here for some wifi and journaling. They have fans constantly going to stay cool, and the seating is set up nicely for socializing or camping out solo for a while.

Facing the lake shore, one cannot miss this very popular restaurant in Pokhara. Awesome food specially their Italian dishes on the menu. We enjoyed their signature pizza and.beer and would definitely visit again. Staff very pleasant.
