“Yum yum!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2013

Or2k probably doesn't need another positive review but this place was such a respite. Good food, reasonably on-top-of-it service, shotty wifi but wifi nonetheless, not too expensive. You can get salads here with no worries or concerns. The Or2k combo platter and antipasti salads were favorites. Caprese salad never came with basil. Breakfast plates were good. You always see regulars here. They recently moved to a new location and now have designated smoking and nonsmoking seating which is a HUGE improvement as that was previously my biggest complaint.

“Hit and miss”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2013

Lovely decorations and cosy seating on the floor. This place is your typical "banana-pancake trail" kind of place and very clearly here to please and accommodate Israeli trade. The menu is extensive and exclusively vegetarian and all raw foods are rinsed in iodinised water before serving. Price is a little more expensive than other restaurants of the same standard however. Generally most things I ordered came out perfectly cooked but I did have to send back a pancake which was raw in the middle - quite off putting. The second pancake was much better cooked but something as simple as a pancake should not have had any mistakes in preparation anyway, hence the average and not very good review... Gave the impression of a rush job. The WiFi did work for a while but then stopped working but they do provide plug sockets for recharging at most tables which was a nice, thoughtful feature of the place.

“Going down hill...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2013

Having lived in Kathmandu for the past 4 months, I have been to OR2K numerous of times. In September the food was delicious, portions were generous, it had a lovely atmosphere and all for a very reasonable price. Now however, the dishes are overly priced for what they are, the atmosphere is painful due to the horrendously loud music and awful service. Not sure why its gone so down hill but I regret to say, it has. I wouldn't recommend it.

“Top Choice Restraunt in Thamel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2013

It is the top choice of Lonely Planet, we had dinner three times during we stayed in Kathmandu. The food is delicious & health but at reasonable price. The menu has different style food for your choice.
