It is a fantastic restaurant to taste authentic Newari food. Great ambience and very friendly staff. Being vegetarians, it was great to have numerous choices. We found the price reasonable. Most importantly it supports local home based women workers.

The food is great and the fact that they have home based female workers involved is even better. You must try the classic newari dessert called "Yomari". There is also a small shop below the cafe where you can find jewelry, apparels and home decor.

Had a lovely meal here - got to try a range of authentic Nepali dishes and learned about the heritage of the cuisine - even got a mini kitchen tour! Very friendly staff, good food for a good cause.

I quite often go here for my Newari fix. The food is good and there are lots of different options for bara, chatamari sets etc. However, beware the service can be very slow so allow extra time for your meal.
