I came to Kar.ma in order to work on my laptop. The venue is big and beautiful and at first glance, it seems like an ideal and relaxing environment for my ends. I ordered a lime soda and espresso. Although the place was not busy...at all it took 20 min until I got the lime soda. Then I realized they forgot about my espresso. It took another 15-20 min until I got my espresso. I asked for the bill as I notice that everything takes time and I was supposed to be somewhere in 40 min time. The waitress said ok but nothing happened for the next 15 min. Only when I saw that someone paying at the register I realized that I should pay at the register. Although the waitress spoked English, she didn’t say anything about it... The espresso was ok. However, the Rhino Coffee and the Himalayan Java Coffee Serve better coffee!More

Our group took a cooking class here and learn how to make momos. They. We’re delicious! However mine looked nothing like a memo as a need much more practice! The coffee was also great and the cafe had plenty of space for work or leisure.

Great place to sit outside and get some work done. Or just have a coffee and catch up with a girlfriend. Coffee is amazing and so is the food. This place is in a building where loads of things are happening, cultural and sport wise....Go and check it out! I promise you’ll love it!More

Have searched for a place like this. Beautiful environment with conscious mindful business. Coffee is great, and also all the displayed local artisan purchasable goods. I jeep bringing my friends over here since they have good wifi and it is a suitable place to work...as well. The only thing is missing is a restroom. You have to go down and up in the parking lot to find it. Anyways, it is a highly recommended cafe shop in Kathamndu!More

I visited this cafe with a couple of friends and have since returned alone to enjoy this peaceful cafe. Recommended to go in the daytime if you want total peace as it gets busy after work. I ordered a masala tea and was tempted by...the freshly made green salad and yoghurt muesli. The relaxed decor was charming and included lampshades made from coffee filters. There were coffee paraphernalia for sale such as coffee pots, mugs, soap made from coffee beans and also delightful tea sets. The wooden chopping boards were inexpensive as were the small boxes of fragrant incense sticks that I bought as a gift, the attention to detail caught my eye as the plain brown box had a raffia tie with a metal label with kar.ma cafe on it. The whole cafe has been designed thoughtfully with coffee at it's heart .The cafe is situated on the 2nd floor of a building that overlooks a courtyard and also houses an indoor bouldering/climbing wall, a yoga studio and a jazz musicians recording studio. I would recommend spending a couple of hours sitting in the shade on one of its balconies sipping a hot drink relaxing.More

A great place for a delicious pour over coffee and some breakfast snacks. In a nice quiet location it is the perfect place to escape the chaos of Kathmandu’s busy streets! Pour over coffee is ‘pay what you feel’ and trust me, you will love...it!More
