“no need to go there”
Reviewed March 9, 2014

The Nepali Chulo restaurant is a tourist trap. If you want to be ripped off, please go there....

There is a set dinner menu with all the same food you can have everywhere in the city and some musician playing and two dancers dancing. The food is okay, but really nothing special, you cannot choose anything as it is a set menue. The musician and dancers move from dining room to dining room to perform one dance / song at one room at one time, then they move to the next dining room and and so on; after 4 rooms they are back to your room again and start over again.

The restaurant was frequent with many tourists on groups, many buses - most Chinese guests...

The price of the food was high; we paid for two beers and the two set-menues 46 US $. Never ever spent so much money on dinner in Kathmandu.

Want to hear my recommenation: stay away, go for dinner any other place and you will have better food and pay far less for it.

“not the best food or show around”
Reviewed November 1, 2013

At 1500 rupee per head, plus drinks, plus VAT and Service charges your night, in comparison to other places around. The food was amongst the worst during our stay, it wasn't bad, it's just that the general standard of food in Kathmandu and Nepal generally is so high that for top dollar I really expect something special and it wasn't on offer here. Also, the show was pretty lame, even the performers seemed to have trouble stopping themselves from laughing, and again we saw much better and more authentic shows in both Sauraha and Pokhara. The building and the artefacts are really special, but that's about the best I can say about it, I'm afraid.
