“Jawalakhel Branch”
Reviewed April 11, 2013

I went here with my husband in March, and had a relaxed and enjoyable my visit. We both liked the hot lemon and honey drink, as breathing too deeply in the congested city streets of Kathmandu can play havoc with your throat! The momos were good too, but best of all was the competent and friendly service. I use New Zealand Sign language, which is vastly different than Nepali sign, but I was still able to communicate with the lovely waitress even if it was mostly the 'universal sign' of gesture. In a country where it is hard for anyone to find good employment, it was good to see a place that intentionally employs deaf and hearing impaired employees.

“Cool Place, Love the Ethos”
Reviewed April 7, 2013

There's a chain of Bakery Cafes throughout Kathmandu and if you're passing, it's worth calling in for a coffee or fresh lemon soda. The masala dosas are as good as any you'll get in south India, though pizzas etc are nothing to write home about. But the company has a great ethos of helping those with disabilities and employs deaf/speech impaired staff who would otherwise find it hard to get work in Kathmandu. Their service is always friendly and helpful. If you want to show appreciation smile or learn sign language for 'thank you.' (Google it. It's easy) :-)

“Food so-so, ambiance fair”
Reviewed February 28, 2013

We ate dinner here (early; we are Americans!) with a group of 10 Overseas Adventure Travel vacationers recently. The walk from our hotel (Everest Hotel, situated very close on the same side of the highway) was horrendous -- the road is being torn up and it was a rocky, rutty trail. The restaurant is not very upscale, but it was good to know that this restaurant employs deaf waiters, who did a good job in serving us. We began our meal with a (not very good, watery) mushroom soup, followed by a "sizzler" platter -- a hot metal platter on which was served chicken pieces, matchstick-cut vegetables, noodles AND potatoes (!), with a sauce. Fairly good, but the chicken (thigh parts) was tough. Butterscotch ice cream was the dessert. Slightly icy.

“Recommended but I wouldn't return”
Reviewed February 19, 2013

Our city guide recommended this place. It is a walk along a dark and uneven street. The cafe is downstairs. Deaf waiters do an excellent job. The momos were good but spicey. Other members of our party got pizzas, which appeared to be of the frozen kind. Some got Chinese lookiing noodle dishes that didn't appeal to me. Decor was nothing special. They put our large group in a private room; felt we were at a conference.

“good momos and a good cause”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

Went here for the momos. It is a pleasant place and all of the waiters are deaf mutes, so it felt good to support a business like this/
