This is a great place for a quick, cheap meal. The menu is broad with plenty of Nepali, Indian and Chinese options. Food has been uniformly tasty (but probably not spectacular). Prices are very low. Overall ambiance isn't great though.

Since 2 or 3 months I think that the cooker moved to another place and all the dishes are all oily, still the service is fine and quick but that a shame to have too much oil in the plate, the menu price is affordable

I have been here 5-7 times in the last year. It is my go-to place for tasty Indian food because they are fast and have great prices. This place used to be really crowded with UN personnel but most of them now go the restaurant right across the street. However, if you don't need a Western bathroom (theirs is a squat-style right behind the cash register!) and you want to eat somewhere quick and affordable, it is very good. Try their Kashmiri naan and Chicken Tikka Masala.

This restaurant offers Napalese, Indian, and Chinese dishes. I must admit that I have tried only Indian foods such as chicken or veg curry so far, but they were all of good quality. I feel most foods are very basic, but reliable. It seems to be very popular for Nepalese families; for those touriests and travelers who want to see local cuisine scene, it is a god place to go and observe. Unlike most of restaurants, Downton doesn't charge servie fee or tax. You would be surprised at your bill, after having high quality basic foods.
